Impressions

e-Demon is a great concept that lacks parallel direction. The viewer is seeing everything on the screens of the computers, so it makes the film fall under the Found-Footage genre. Despite my disinterest in Found-Footage, this is a good choice for the nature film, which is to reveal the viral demon and the truth about what happened during The Quad Murders. This unleashed from The e-Demon Resistance Network.

e-Demon starts off slow. The group of friends catching up over FaceTime video chat. Viewers can see what goes on in each person’s surroundings and their personal lives. As the film progresses, normal activities take an awkward turn. Going further, we take a journey down the rabbit hole as things become intense. There is a faint chant which is the demon.

Films revolving around supernatural and spiritual presences and entities are a popular trend. However, viral entities don’t frequent as much. Levan Gabriadze came out with a similar concept in Unfriended (2014), and this holds psychological substance over Wetcher’s e-Demon. Sitting watching people play catch-up over video chat lost its appeal about 10 minutes in, yet this goes on for about the first half of the film before things progress.

Normal computer viruses take a dark and unpleasant turn as the viral demon inhabits the homes of its victims and possess them. This makes the possessed commit violent acts upon their family members. This concept is still fresh in the demon possession genre. It’s heavy in the Drama and Thriller categories, but it lacks in the Horror category. The news clippings and video chat sessions give the film a genuine feel. The acts committed are a great quality in the special effects department.

In Conclusion

e-Demon is the unleashing of a viral demon that invades its victims’ homes and lives through a deadly online virus. This concept is fresh and invigorating, yet the film lacks psychological substance and Horror themes.DecayMag.com, Jeremy Wetcher, E-Demon
