Inner Demon (2014 / 84 mins)
In this claustrophobic and harrowing horror film, a teenage girl Sam is abducted by a deranged serial killer couple in rural South Australia. After managing to escape, she seeks refuge in an isolated farmhouse – only to discover that the cabin in the woods is home to even greater horrors in the form of a malevolent spirit. As Sam is forced to fight for survival, power dynamics shift and blur, until it’s no longer clear who is a villain and who is being forced to commit evil.
Loosely based on a series of real-life murders, Inner Demon debuted at A Night of Horror International Film Festival where it picked up the awards for Best Australian Feature, Best Australian Director and Best Female Performance.
