In 2020, director Neill Blomkamp (District 9, Elysium) began shooting a secret horror film known only as Demonic. We are finally seeing the first images of this mysterious project and a rare peek behind the scenes clip featuring 8mm footage shot by Blomkamp. It’s difficult to get a good read on exactly what is going on in the film, but it sure looks like it’s going to be cool as hell!

Blomkamp’s previous features are firmly in the sci-fi realm, but the synopsis for Demonic (not to mention the name) lets us know that we’re in for some serious horror in this case. Judging by the photos and the clip, I think we’ll still get some hits of that sci-fi background though. We hope to have more information on this one as the release date gets closer!

IFC Midnight will release Demonic in theaters August 20th, 2021 and on VOD/Digital on August 27th, 2021.
