It’s no secret that the 80s were a prime decade for horror fans, which is why so many filmmakers of today are so eager to evoke the spirit of that bygone era. Horror-comedy Demon Hole looks to do just that, and we’ve got all the details for ya today.
Screen Daily reports that UK sales outfit SC Films has boarded international sales rights to the completed film, written and directed by Josh Crook. It’s set to screen at Cannes.
Demon Hole charts the fallout after a fracking crew drills a hole on sacred Native American land unleashing an ancient demon, which then terrorizes six teens serving community service in a remote forest.
Cast includes Samantha Scaffidi, Austin Ramsey, Paris Campbell, Summer Bills and Adrian Denzel.
“The current crop of horror movies has gotten too severe and grim,” says Cook. “While scary, they’re also depressing. Taking influence from John Hughes as much as it does John Carpenter and Wes Craven, Demon Hole brings the vibe of the 1980s back and invites the audience to enjoy the ride.”
