‘Careful what you wish for’
Demon Eye is a 2018 British supernatural horror film written and directed by Ryan Simons (Seizure).
The Quick Films production stars Darren Day, Liam Fox, Kate James and Ellie Goffe.
Inspired by the 1850s tale of the Saddleworth Witch. A young woman returns to her father’s country house on the moors, following his mysterious death and discovers a cursed amulet, connected to local witchcraft. She discovers the amulet has dark powers and will grant you your greatest wish, but in return, she unlocks two deadly demons, who haunt her…
“Between the creepy visuals; a soundtrack that combines eerie music, snarling dogs and crying babies; and a left-field plot twist in the final third, Demon Eye really piles on the fear, spiralling, nay crescendoing, into an insanely terrifying haunted-house thrill ride that left this jaded horror fan completely satisfied.” 4/5 Nerdly
” …might have worked if [writer/director Ryan Simons] made the leads likable, and not have them acting totally illogically. But as it stands Demon Eye is just a load of cliché scares happening to people we don’t give a damn about.” Voices from the Balcony
Demon Eye premiered at the Fantasporto Fantastic Film Festival in Portugal on 26th February 2019.
The film received a limited theatrical release in the USA in April via Vertical Entertainment and genre specialist sales agent Devilworks. The movie is now available in North America on Amazon Prime Video
