SORRY ABOUT THE DEMON (REVIEW)
Dir. Emily Hagins
Reviewer. Martyn Wakefield
Horror and comedy are so frequent that the formula must be an easy concoction to make. It's certainly an art form and for ever SHAUN OF THE DEAD there's a RAVE TO THE GRAVE. Balancing laughs and being dark enough to still be a good horror film need a particular set of skills, and writer/director Emily Hagins is no Liam Neeson.
Despite a brilliant premise of having a possessed daughter, handing over that possession to another forthcoming victim has a lot of potential for chills and laughs, unfortunately SORRY ABOUT THE DEMON has neither.
The film is played pretty straight despite its fun prospects and in doing so feels more like a teen drama than a horror comedy.
