Sorry About the Demon is a 2022 American comedy horror film about a young man who discovers that his new place is full of restless spirits.
Written and directed by Emily Hagins (Coin Heist; Grow Up Tony Phillips; My Sucky Teen Romance; The Retelling). It was produced by Cameron Burns, Emily Gotto, Ben Hanks, Aaron B. Koontz, Pasha Patriki and Ashleigh Snead.
The Paper Street Pictures-Hangar 18 Media-Blood Oath co-production stars Jon Michael Simpson, Paige Evans, Jeff McQuitty, Olivia Ducayen, Dave Peniuk and Sarah Cleveland.
After being dumped by his girlfriend Amy (Paige Evans), brokenhearted Will (Jon Michael Simpson), is suddenly offered a massive house at a very low rent. The catch is that the restless spirit haunting the place needs a human sacrifice and the prior owners must find one or else their young daughter is toast. So, Will has to figure out how to make things right with his ex-girlfriend and banish the sacrifice-seeking demon still residing in his house…
” …Hagins’ light and fluffy creation is a delightful addition to the horror-comedy genre […] So whip out the crucifix and bless the bottled water for a devilishly fun rollercoaster ride as Will and his friends venture to the edge of hell with a walkman, toothpaste and a whole host of baked products.” 3.5 out of 5, Cinerama Film
“Sorry About the Demon is a fun, entertaining movie full of screwball comedy mixed with jolting horror that fans of Sam Raimi or John Landis will likely appreciate. The film doesn’t take itself too seriously and it offers something a little different in the haunted house sub-genre. Emily Hagins is definitely a rising, promising talent…” The Fright Club NI
“The film takes a direction towards the end that I did not see coming from a mile away, which is something a horror comedy has never really been able to make me feel: surprised. Sorry About the Demon is an accessible genre film that will make you laugh, hide, and leave you with a wholesome truth or dare grin on your face. This is truly a one-of-a-kind horror comedy.” Horror Obsessive
“It’s mostly a creepy farce, riffing on haunted home and demon possession movies with sly wit and an engaging mix of modern cynicism and a kindly attitude to characters that’s refreshing in an age where too many movies default to punishing people onscreen and in the audience. The salt content of the toothpaste turns out to come in handy later in the demon infestation.” The Kim Newman Web Site
“Beautifully shot in a large, creaky house full of ghosts that are restless because a demon demands a vessel to possess, there are a few effective jump-scares, but for the most part, everything’s handled for laughs. It may not be laugh-out-loud funny throughout, but the likeable main characters keep things engaging.” 3 out of 5, Starbust
“If you like your horror with charm, good humour and loads of sweet, sweet icing on the cake, Sorry About the Demon has all this aplenty – and, if you are worried that so much sugar could damage the sharpness of its bite, it has something for that too.” 3.5 out of 5, VODzilla
