Dimension Films announced today that it will release the supernatural thriller Demonic, presented by James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious, Saw), on December 12, 2014. The film is produced by James Wan and Lee Clay (Beautiful Boy) and directed by Will Canon (Brotherhood). The script is based on an original idea of James Wan's.

Golden Globe nominated Maria Bello stars as the lead female along with Frank Grillo.

The film centers on the aftermath of a horrific massacre where five college students were brutally murdered inside an abandoned home. Detective Mark Lewis and psychologist Dr. Elizabeth Klein question one of the few survivors who explains they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house, which was believed to be haunted. But what started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying.
