Dark Cut Pictures to bring supernatural horror feature e-Demon stateside

Last Updated on July 30, 2021

It's been announced that E-DEMON, the supernatural cyber horror feature written and directed by Jeremy Wechter, has landed stateside distribution courtesy of Dark Cuts Pictures. As a part of the pickup, Deadline states that the film is now set for a theatrical release with a day-and-date VOD release scheduled for September. The movie stars Julia Kelly, John Anthony Wylliams, Christopher Daftsios and Ryan Redebaugh in a story about an escaped demon on a dark and twisted mission that manipulates a group of friends hanging out on a video-chat. Kendra, AJ, Mar and Dwayne are old college friends who find themselves growing apart. Attempting to hang on to their college days, the gang gets together online for a night of stories, pranks and drinking via web-cam. As the evening progresses, they unknowingly release a devious demon that had been trapped for centuries in Salem, Massachusetts. Since the demon can possess multiple people at once, the group of friends must determine who they can still trust in order to survive the demon’s dark and twisted mission (via Deadline).

In talking about his excitement to have acquired the film, Warner Davis, President of Dark Cuts Pictures, stated “Dark Cuts couldn’t be more excited about unleashing e-Demon upon the world. It’s an exciting and very unique supernatural horror film that audiences will really enjoy. What makes the film so unique is the blend of the classic Salem witch legends with the technological backdrop. We’re ecstatic to bring Jeremy Wechter’s work to North American audiences.”

Ah, you had me at Salem witch legends, Mark. Oddly enough, the Salem Witch Trials were one of my favorite topics to learn about throughout my schooling career. In terms of film style, E-DEMON will take place entirely via computer screen with footage being piped in through strategically-placed web cams. It's like if THE BLAIR WITCH PROJECT, PARANORMAL ACTIVITY, and UNFRIENDED decided to get together for an experimental horror show.

Be sure to check out E-DEMON when the film comes to theaters and Video-On-Demand this September 14th.
