review by
Mike Haberfelner

Without any warning, teenaged Sam (Sarah Jeavons) is dragged from her home one night, tied up, thrown into a car trunk, and driven out to the middle of nowhere. She manages to free herself from her bonds during the drive, and when the trunk's finally opened, she manages to make an escape - and ultimately learns that a backwoods couple, Karl (Andreas Sobik) and Denise (Kerry Ann Reid) have made her their latest victim for ... well, whatever they intend to do with her, Sam just knows their intentions are evil. Eventually, Sam manages to shake off the couple, and she reaches a cabin ... only to find out it's Karl and Denise's cabin. Somehow she manages to hide in a closet - which Karl locks eventually. Now she has always known her situation is a grim one, but this is reinforced when Karl kills one of his friends (Todd Telford) on a whim, then takes him apart as if it was the most natural thing to do. What's even worse is that Sam is gravely injured, and if she doesn't get help soon she'll bleed to death - but leaving her hiding place is the one thing she doesn't dare to do. And then she has to discover that her captors have also kidnapped her little sister (Scarlett Hocking), probably the only person she loves more than herself ...


Inner Demon is a pretty tense and effective horror thriller of the backwoods variety - and that said, its narrative as such doesn't warrant any originality at all, it's pretty much horror trimmed down to the bone, with a slightly far-fetched premise and little effort made to make it more plausible (which of course means on the plus side it doesn't bore the audience with explaining things away). What's really appealing though is the way it's made, taking the perspective of the lead victim Sam most of the time, showing large portions of the plot merely through a hole in the cupboard's door and thus forcing the viewer to identify with her more and more, but thankfully the film abandons this approach whenever narratively needed, to create a full story rather than relying on its approach alone. And as skeletal as the plot might be, I have to repeat here, the movie's tense, plus a solid cast totally helps in bringing it to life!
