Movie Info

Eight years ago, Father Colin Hampstead oversaw an aborted exorcism that resulted in the gruesome death of seventeen-year-old Jewel Grant, in rural Louisiana. The deceased girl's older sister, Kayleigh, grew immediately attached to Hampstead and sought him out, at first for grief counseling and then, for much more. Eight years later, Hampstead has left the priesthood and become a celebrated fiction writer, specializing in stories about the occult, and he and Kayleigh, now his wife, have a beautiful daughter and run a well-known bed and breakfast in Savannah, GA. When the couple agrees to host a wedding for one of Colin's college friends, what begins as a Big Chill-type reunion turns into something much more macabre, as the seemingly omnipresent ghost of her dead sister Jewel compels Kayleigh to engage in bizarre, destructive behaviors that endanger the lives of both her friends and herself.

Critic Reviews for Demons

All Critics (6) | Top Critics (2)

Demons has spunk, the weightiness of the themes being explored startlingly complex. It's still pretty rough around the ages.

October 16, 2017 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

The ambitious auteur is getting better at making his novelistic ideas punchy and cinematic, but "Demons" is still a B-movie that takes itself too seriously.

October 5, 2017 | Full Review…

I can get behind movies of any quality that are made with passion, but I just whiff too much cynicism here to really give the filmmakers a lot of credit.

October 23, 2019 | Full Review…

Demons has potential, but the fractured storytelling, plodding pace, and bad acting from half the cast thwart its ambitions.

February 8, 2018 | Rating: C- | Full Review…

Demons is a great ride, ostensibly silly but with a lot more darkness underneath the surface.

November 8, 2017 | Rating: 3/5 | Full Review…

"Demons" ultimately comes up short, but Doleac goes down swinging.

Audience Reviews for Demons

Demons is not about what Demons is about. A novel approach, just wish it had been a good movie too.
