"Buried for decades… silent until now." The Orchard has released an official US trailer for a horror-comedy called Demon, from the late Polish filmmaker Marcin Wrona, who finished this film and died last year just before its initial release. Titled Ha'dibouk in Hebrew, the film is about a man possessed by an "unquiet" spirit in the midst of his own wedding. It's a new take on the Jewish legend of the dybbuk, described as "part absurdist comedy, part love story that scares, amuses, and charms in equal measure." Starring Agnieszka Zulewska and Itay Tiran, with Andrzej Grabowski and Tomasz Schuchardt. The film is actually partially in English, so dive right in, even though this trailer doesn't seem to show much of the comedic side. This looks quite chilling and unique, worth seeking out if you're a fan of possession horror or Polish cinema.
Here's the official US trailer (+ poster) for Marcin Wrona's Demon, in high def from Apple:
Newly arrived from England to marry his fiancee Zaneta (Agnieszka Zulewska), Peter (Itay Tiran) has been given a gift of her family's ramshackle country house in rural Poland. It’s a total fixer-upper, and 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 begins to come undone, and a dybbuk, the iconic ancient figure from Jewish folklore, takes a toehold in this present-day celebration—for a very particular reason, as it turns out. Demon is directed by Polish filmmaker Marcin Wrona, of My Flesh My Blood, The Christening, who passed away last year just before the film opened in Poland. The screenplay is written by Pawel Maslona and Marcin Wrona. This also premiered at the Toronto Film Festival in 2015. The Orchard will open Demon in select US theaters starting September 9th. Cool?
