Demonic possession films have always been popular in the world of cinema. Just last week, the newest devil’s child movie came out, Devils Due, as well as the video that went viral online to promote the film that showed a devil baby riding around New York in a stroller. Yet somehow moviegoers are still drawn to the thrill of a good scare.
Demonic possession films really never seem to go out of style amongst moviegoers. Perhaps it is because of the theme’s other-worldly feeling of suspense and terror or even the religiously taboo feeling these films have. These films offer audience members a bit of an escape from reality while still keeping a sense of “what if,” since most of these stories claim to be based off true stories.
