Writer Statement

"Demeter" is intended as a throwback to horror films of the 1970s, namely classics such as “Don’t Look Now” (1973), “Carrie” (1976), and “Rosemary’s Baby” (1968). The goal is to bring a more methodical rhythm to this film, designing it to be a slow burner that gets under one’s skin. Furthermore, the tension will be maximized as we gradually witness our protagonist’s ideal life crumble, with her then having to adapt to the changes in order to survive.
