Everyday we get a series of notifications for upcoming movies for the season. At this point, I’m convinced that Satan has the best PR rep in the business. Below is a list of films headed to theaters recently and in the next month.
The Devil’s Hand
When six girls are born on the sixth day of the sixth month to different mothers in the small, devout village of New Bethlehem an ancient prophecy is set in motion — on their 18th birthday one of the girls will become the Devil’s Hand. As the day approaches and one by one the young women begin to disappear, terror overtakes the quiet community and those remaining girls band together to uncover who or what is behind these treacherous acts.
US Release Date: October 10, 2014
Synopsis: INNER DEMONS follows an ‘Intervention’-style reality show crew that films an episode about a sixteen-year old girl, a former A-student, who is fighting addiction but may in fact be suffering from something even more destructive: demonic possession. The movie is an inquiry into the truth about her – with symptoms that straddle the disturbing and scary intersection between insanity, addiction and true possession.
US Release Date: October 2, 2014
As Above, So Below
Synopsis: Miles of twisting catacombs lie beneath the streets of Paris, the eternal home to countless souls. When a team of explorers ventures into the uncharted maze of bones, they uncover the dark secret that lies within this city of the dead. A journey into madness and terror, “As Above, So Below” reaches deep into the human psyche to reveal the personal demons that come back to haunt us all.
US Release Date: August 15, 2014
I think I could happily do without more films on demons, especially ones that use jump-scare as a plot device.
