Demons Take Center Stage in Some of Horror’s Most Haunting Films
Demons are the subject of some of the most terrifying films ever made. The threat of a monster stalking its victim not as a physical entity, but rather an devilish force degrading the heart and mind of a defenseless victim is a fear that chills to the core, and has inspired multiple movie masterpieces. How can we protect ourselves from the evil that lurks within?
Featuring Linda Blair, Jordan Peele, Diablo Cody, Oren Peli and many others, Eli Roth explores how horror films exploit the fear that our bodies and our homes could suddenly be possessed by an uncharacteristic evil, in films like The Exorcist, Rosemary's Baby, The Omen, Paranormal Activity, Get Out and more.
