Demonic

Demonic

A team of ghost hunters explore an abandoned house and meet a fate eerily similar to the murders that happened there decades ago. A police detective and psychologist try to solve the mystery by interviewing the last known survivor.

Meh. This was a pretty predictable outing, mixing found-footage, possession, ghosts, and ax murders. The storytelling is somewhat interesting in the way it jumps between the time before the ghost hunters come to their awful end, and the investigators trying to piece it together, but that’s really the only noteworthy thing about this movie. It’s definitely not helped by the fact that the characters are largely unlikable and don’t seem to like each other very much; I looked forward to the lurking horror in the house doing them in just to put an end their constant sniping.

The ending was interesting and well-played, with a bit of a twist, but it doesn’t redeem “Demonic” from being an average and unremarkable bit of horror filler.
