Director Statement

I've always been fascinated with the idea of demons and devils, and the difference between faith and the laws of a church.

I wanted to explore this in 'Inner Devils' by using the central possessed character as a verbal weapon to push ideas and exploit weaknesses in others, instead of another spinning heads and vomiting ‘possession’ film.

We did research to try and include the ideas and differences in other faiths in the script. In hindsight, it may have been a bit ambitious to cover everything we wanted and still create an engaging drama within the time-frame and budget.

However, the end result is definitely on the right track, thanks to the dedicated cast and crew. There’s still a bigger story in there waiting to be told.
