It’s been a long time since District 9Neill Blomkamp directed a full-length film – no since 2015 it is bad received Chappie, in fact. That will change when in his new film Demonic comes later this summer, a science fiction-horror story that is … kind of incomprehensible, at least in its first trailer?
It’s not a call to judgment – it certainly doesn’t mean the movie looks bad – I don’t know what the hell is going on, I guesss intentional.

As they say, there are definitely demons, and a mother and a daughter. But there’s also a kind of virtual reality world figuring out somehow, and it’s mostly what I can’t get my head around.
