Reviews
much better than i expected
I went into this expecting a stupid exorcist rip off.Not at all the case. The story does revolve around an exorcism that already happened and everything that ensued from it and what led up to it.A lot of it told in flashbacks but plenty going on in the present too.The story is told at a nice quick pace and keeps you interested.A lot going on here and the acting is pretty good too except for the mother(but we can let that slide).All in all,a good solid movie. I definitely recommend!

Fantastic!
I was completely blown away when I watched this movie, mainly because it truly didn't feel like an "independent film". I sometimes think that the term "independent film" can carry a stigma with it, meaning some might confuse the term with "home movie" or something. But this movie, Demons, is so utterly stellar in its production value and overall presentation, that I personally forgot that it was an independent film, and thought I was watching a legitimate Hollywood motion picture.

Personally, one of my biggest selling points on that claim was actually the soundtrack, in that it was an actual movie score! When it comes to movie music, a lot of times independent films can fall short, because they'll just have somebody strumming a few chords on a guitar or something, no matter what the story's about. But Clifton Hyde's and Darren Morze's actual full score is not only refreshing to witness in an independent film, but it is also very suspenseful, and is an absolute perfect fit with the action that's playing out on screen. Checkout the film's trailer to see what I mean.

This movie also has just awesome performances, and a deliciously clever story written by the film's star and director, Miles Doleac. So, yeah, especially since it's about that time for Halloween again, forget about the whole "independent film" thing or whatever, and get out and go treat yourself to this highly entertaining movie.

A Masterful Psychological Puzzle
The difficulties of creating an independent film extends from creating the script, finding the right actors to filming it with the right crew. Under a limited budget and time sometimes films under these circumstances will have major flaws. Demons however is not one of these films.

Demons is a very intellectual piece of literature delving into the deep psychological aspects of the human being bound by religion, family, and societal challenges. It is a rich narrative that leaves a lot to the imagination all the while leading you to complete a puzzle that is the story. Though it is hard to follow at times due to the philosophical and intense psychological aspects, it will leave audiences in awe of how the causality of every action in the film intertwine. I will be honest in saying that not only is this not for the faint of heart but also those who do not wish to take the time to piece together details. As previously stated it is a psychological puzzle piece in my humble understanding.

As with the technical aspects, I will just say that it is not a blockbuster film and so some people may not agree with some of the choices that were bound by the time and budget. The narrative and the acting in the film more than makes up for it under my most humble opinion.

Definitely looking forward to what Miles Doleac will do next.

Demons (2017) and the Quest of Indie Film
Greetings from the Ether,

We were given the honor to attend an early screening of Demons, a new horror film from Mississippi powerhouse Miles Doleac (American Horror Story, The Magnificent Seven). We would first like to thank the director for the invite and for him reaching out to the Gehenna Post. We hope this will be the first of many, many more early reviews.

Alas, let's begin!

Former priest Colin Hampstead turns to a career as an author after an attempted exorcism goes wrong. The victim of said possession is none other than the younger sister of the woman he later marries. Together, and many years after the tragic incident, they battle the demons that aim to put them down, coming to realizations and truths about themselves in the process.

Now, the first thing that must be noted and thoroughly considered, is the fact that this film is not a Hollywood blockbuster. It is not on tier with many Oscar-nominated films. For average moviegoers, the experience may not be what they would hope. Nonetheless, the ability to admire the work that these artists put their hearts and souls into, with the limited resources they had, is something that we should take into acknowledgment.

There are good performances here, most notably from John Schneider (Smallville), Andrew Divoff (Wishmaster), and Steven Brand (The Scorpion King). Unlike previous outings with Doleac as director, he chose (in a risk that truly paid off) to put other cast members to the forefront. The character of Colin (played by Miles Doleac) is well done, as all of the director's on screen performances have been to date, but he truly gave the floor to other stars in a way that hasn't been seen and this was perhaps one of the most respectable decisions made.

Doleac's previous directorial and starring outings, The Historian and The Hollow were both in the field of drama, one being a cinematic academia-based investigation, and the latter being a southern crime noir. Stepping into the realm of horror was brave, and though Doleac doesn't have the most experience in this genre, his skill as a director and screenwriter shine through. There are some solid scares and a few very intense moments throughout the film, while maintaining a structure that is at times changing pretty fast-paced, but at other times seamless. During the Q&A, we asked the director about the challenges he faced tackling the genre of horror, and he said something that we found to be very truthful, horror is "character-driven." The reveals and expanding plot development surrounding the possession and why it happened are exactly that. This, Doleac nailed on the head.

Keeping in mind the struggles that indie filmmakers face in today's industry, Doleac continues to impress with the resources he is given. In the Q&A after the film, the director revealed that the script was written relatively quickly, and despite the rushed nature of this animal's creation, there is some honest storytelling to be seen. If the director can write a screenplay like this in such a short time, one can only imagine his capabilities if given the proper resources and time.

Demons has flaws, and doesn't quite surpass what The Hollow achieved, but it is still worth watching, and more importantly, worth supporting. In a day and age where independent filmmakers struggle to gain recognition and have to work endlessly and tirelessly to produce a movie, it is more important now than ever to support indie films. As Doleac pointed out in the Q&A, the theater industry is dying and it is near impossible to work from the ground up, setting your own foundations in the process.

Many facets of the film didn't work but the ones that did made up for it. It will be interesting to see where Doleac goes from here and if he chooses to pursue horror again. We are excited to see his progression as a director, actor, and screenwriter. We encourage you, our readers, to watch this film and to support indie film- making. Demons is not The Exorcist or The Conjuring but we hope it is the first in an ever-improving filmography from Miles Doleac.

A psychological marvel bringing light to an unacknowledged epidemic..
Loved it! Poignant story line..beautifully written script. Really appreciated the spotlight on the realities of the physical and sexual abuse of children and how it not only transforms the victim, but the family in its entirety...great use of statistical data to prove that perpetrators of abuse are those that children know, love, and trust, contrary to what we as a society would like to believe, and have willed ourselves to do so, rather than accepting the facts as they are.....

Wonderful cast!!! A breath of fresh air from the oh so typical, run of the mill, screamer, horror movie, allowing you to really develop a relationship with the characters!!! This one really makes you think! A must see for all! Bravo to all involved!

There are fake reviews and the cover is poor, but...it's a good movie.
It's not the first time when I see fake reviews appearing for a decent movie, probably because the movie didn't get enough attention, I don't know. Note to distributors or authors - you're just shooting yourself in the leg, especially when you have a solid material. Stop. Doing. That. People won't believe your movie is decent and you'll just bring the people who will rate it 1/10 not because of the movie, but because of the fake reviews.

Tagline is also somewhat misleading, it's not really your typical exorcist movie. The cover is somewhat amateurishly made, the movie itself is not like that at all. Why spending budget on making a good movie but not ever think about cover?

As for the movie, I'd say it's a solid mystery / psychological thriller, told through the two connected stories (present / past events). Also, the one about the past is either shot on film or has a grain filter added in post-production, in any case it's a great touch. It's intriguing and captivating, characters are nothing special, but are memorable and the actors do their job. I also like the acting and voice of Andrew Divoff, he's just as charismatic as he was in Hatred (2017) and he's also playing a religious fanatic here as well. By the end you'll learn why the movie is called "Demons" (how I said, it's not really your typical exorcist movie).

Worth a watch, maybe even two or three.

A Fun and Twisted Ride
This is an excellent psychological thriller that does not shy away from taboo topics. The dynamic cast brought this female driven story to life as it dove headfirst into the characters. Thus, making it easier to understand the motives behind some of the choices. The actors portrayed the characters so true to life that it makes you take a side way glance at your neighbors. Truly, it was a pleasure to watch the way the time sequences were seamlessly welded together to bring the story full circle. All of the twists and turns keep you guessing and makes for a fun ride. So much praise to Lindsay Anne Williams for her adaptation of such a complicated character trapped between her duties, expectations, and her own internal morels!

Intriguing, deep, and thought provoking!
This movie is Incredibly watchable and entertaining with great depth of characters and enough dark intensity to be categorized in the horror genre, but a truly character-driven drama with supernatural and horror elements. Invites the audience to contemplate along with the characters what type of "demons" really wreak the most havoc in the characters' lives. Jessica Harthcock is reeeeeealy creepy and believable as the unfortunate "victim", and strong female leads (Lindsay Anne Williams, Kristina Emerson) are a refreshingly unusual finding in this genre also! Loved the surprise twist and seeing John Schneider in an unlikely role that nonetheless rang true! Particularly for an independent film with a small budget, this is definitely a great way to spend an afternoon or an evening, and is likely to spark some great conversation afterwards!

The body overcomes the spirit.
PLOT SPOILERS The film opens with Jewel (Jessica Harthcock) dying in what appears to be an exorcism gone bad. We then jump 14 months to the future where Colin, the priest of the failed exorcism (Miles Dolec) is on a honeymoon with Kayleigh (Lindsay Anne Williams) the sister of the victim, apparently a common thing in Louisiana. They are at the Hotel Hesperides which is explained in a flashback. We then jump to another 8 years in the future where Colin is a famous author and the couple has a child, named for the dead sister, as they live in Savannah. They are hosting two other couples in a clothes optional get together prior to a wedding. Lara (Kristina Emerson) who doesn't wear clothes, can sense things besides a light breeze. When Jewel haunts them on what would be her 26th birthday we get a long numerology explanation, which was more detailed than their one line summary of the works of Immanuel Kant.

The film has frequent flashbacks recreating the events leading up to the death of the sister with daddy issues being hinted at early as well as a scientific explanation. Lara, BTW believes in everything and has her own theory of everything which she states in one line which includes "point of singularity" and of course the number 26 as apparently God uses the Gregorian calendar in preference to the Julian calendar. She made the film worth watching, for more than one reason.

The flashbacks were confusing as I wasn't sure what we were seeing. Why are the people who were there, acting like this is the first time they were seeing this? Some of the things, sure, but all of it? Apparently taking a pitchfork to the gut is just a minor flesh wound. No sense in dying. Just get up and walk around like you were never struck. "'Tis but a scratch. I've had worse." And or yes, the other twist which you half saw coming. This is a somewhat clever idea. Miles wanted to keep the twist secret until the very end which meant he had to jumble the chronology and create flashbacks that didn't work well.

Guide: F-word, sex, nudity (Kristina Emerson)
