Demon

Demon

Directed by Marcin Wrona

Newly arrived from England to marry his fiancee, Peter has been given a gift of her family's ramshackle country house in rural Poland. While inspecting the premises on the eve of the wedding, he falls into a pile of human remains. The ceremony proceeds, but strange things begin to happen. During the wild reception, Peter comes undone, and a dybbuk, the iconic ancient figure from Jewish folklore, takes a toehold in this present-day celebration-for a very particular reason.

Over the course of his wild wedding, Peter is taken hold of by a dark force.

Cast: Itay Tiran, Agnieszka Zulewska, Andrzej Grabowski

This movie isn't for everybody. If you aren't into movies that you have to closely pay attention to, don't bother with this movie. I personally really enjoyed it. They do switch from English, Polish, Yiddish, and Russian I believe. I thought this was a unique story that left only a few questions open-ended, which isn't a bad thing. It had some funny moments, great character development, and kept me intrigued. It was also really interesting to watch a Polish wedding. There aren't any jump scares, just a continuing question of whether or not the main character is losing their mind and if so, where did this all originate? I would watch this again and would recommend it.

The story is fascinating, the acting is good, the writing is strong. Note: this is a historical piece and the word "Demon" is very misleading. One expects malevolent possession based on the title and instead you get a ghost story. It probably got more hits for that, but it mismanages expectations.

1 star rating is too generous. I almost feel like ypu have to be on whatever drugs/alcohol the cast was on in order to understand it. It felt like it would never end, even though it was only an hour and a half.

felt unresolved and as though only half the movie was scripted.

Slow paced and repetitious. Has a strong idea buried in it, spoiled by scene after scene of drunken meandering fights. It ends up going nowhere.
