Description

A wedding party goes strangely awry when the bridegroom receives an unwanted spiritual guest on his big night. Peter and Zaneta are about to embark on a new chapter in their lives as a happily married couple with a new house, but at their wedding reception, Peter starts to come unhinged, much to the embarrassment of his father-in-law. Is Peter crazy, or does this have something to do with the human remains he found near his new house? A contemporary take on the dybbuk of Jewish folklore (a malevolent wandering spirit that possesses the body of a living person), this distinct ghost story is told with both humor and atmosphere. Sadly, director Marcin Wrona passed away just one week after Demon’s debut at the 2015 Toronto Film Festival, leaving this film as a reminder of his vibrant creative energy.
