District 9 and Elysium director Neill Blomkamp has just dropped the first trailer for Demonic, his upcoming supernatural horror picture.

According to the film’s brief synopsis, Demonic follows the journey of a young woman who unleashes terrifying demons when supernatural forces come into play after she reunites with her mother. Blomkamp himself elaborated more on the plot in a recent interview with Entertainment Weekly: “The main character is a girl whose been estranged from her mother,” he said. “During the course of the film she gets sort of reunited with her mother and we learn about some crazy back story that she wasn’t aware of. I would say it has a crossover between science fiction and horror.”

The director went on to explain that he had been interested in creating a low-budget horror film for quite some time, drawing inspiration from other projects in the category, such as Paranormal Activity. “For a long time, I’ve been really interested in films like Paranormal Activity and lower budget stuff that is pretty terrifying, and so we just started working on this concept,” he continued. “It grew and it got bigger than films like Paranormal Activity but it was cut from the same cloth really. So that’s what it is.”

For the Blomkamp or horror fans out there, check out the fresh trailer above while you wait for Demonic‘s release in theaters on August 20.
