To win this fight Sam must battle his own inner demons and revert back to his violent past. In order to save the ones he loves a demon must face a demon…


“The tonality against television personalities has satirical amusement. Yet, the film doesn’t remain true with the Horror element. The cast provided the commitment needed to carry out laughable scenes. Chloe Lee radiates as a wonderful actress.” Decay Mag

“While the film does have some minor issues involved here with its overlong running time and some problematic storytelling, the fact that there’s a lot of enjoyable elements present here manages to make this a wholly entertaining effort.” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation

“There are several moments that contain a decent amount of blood and violence, which is slightly comparable to Evil Dead 2 in scope and camp factor. The first act contains some nice creepy moments that should genuinely scare many viewers. This should be a sufficient amount of scares and violence to satisfy most horror fans.” The Movie Sleuth

“Overall, I do recommend The Demon Inside because it is strong in the first two acts and is entertaining as a whole, but be warned that it might leave you unsatisfied with the ending, which feels rushed, doing a real disservice to the film.” Wicked Horror
