The Demonologists movie news

Demonologists movie

Dennis Iliadis, who remade Craven’s seminal 1972 film, “The Last House on the Left,” last year, is negotiating to direct a new film called “The Demonologists,” say several sources familiar with the project. The film is written by Teddy Tenenbaum, a screenwriter who also has numerous credits on the Jennifer Love Hewitt series “Ghost Whisperer.”

“Demonologists,” from “Sherlock Holmes” producer Silver Pictures, concerns a family of veteran ghost hunters who get more than they bargained for when they are called in to face what they soon realize is not a routine ghost job but a demon infestation. The film shares some thematic similarities with “House,” which looked at what happens when a decent family is driven to violent acts.
