‘You can’t bury your past’
3 Demons is a 2021 American horror film about a burnt-out cop who inadvertently awakens evil forces when keeping watch over a dead body.
Directed and edited by D.M. Cunningham (The Spore) from a screenplay co-written with Peter Tell. Produced by D.M. Cunningham, Keith Golinski and Brian Hillard.
The Cold Winters-Night Prowler Video co-production stars Peter Tell, Haley Heslip, Zoe Cunningham, Laura Golinski and Jovonnah Nicholson.
For nine vacant years, Deputy James Fisher (Peter Tell) has wrestled with the loss of his wife and only daughter, struggling to find colour in a world gone grey. During a routine call, he is tasked with keeping watch over the body of a recently deceased woman until her family can arrive and claim her.
Allowing his curiosity to get the better of him, he inadvertently concludes an unfinished ritual. The conjuring now complete, strange and sinister forces begin to target him. Using his own mind as a weapon, James is banished to a maze of torment. As his past is unearthed, he’s forced to face his own demons with terrifying consequences…
3 Demons is being marketed by TALK Global Media.
“The goal for 3 Demons is to create a horror film that is terrifying and aesthetically pleasing. A film that keeps you thinking once you leave the darkness of a theatre. Did he or didn’t he? What does it mean? All while keeping the film – at its core – a freakishly scary creature movie that sends the chills up your spine. The movie that makes you check inside the closet before you go to bed.
To me, 3 Demons is a mix of dread-inducing art house horror like The Evil Dead, The Witch, Let The Right One In and The Beyond.
Maw, Bearth, and Grins.
Rising from the earth and crossing over from other realms.
They are mud and blood. Bone and branch.
Spawned from the darkest deep pits.
