The strange sounds, mysterious figures seem to be harmless, and hidden horrors that no one expected. Following these successes, Swedish cinema introduced Devil’s Boundaries as a new breeze of ghost house genre with attractive content and quality scares.

Like many other families, Eric and Amy Bowen in Poltergeist expressed happiness when buying a cheap home for the whole family. However, the joy quickly turned into a nightmare when they constantly heard strange noises in the night, the electric appliances constantly turned on and off automatically. Not only that, the youngest daughter Madison became bizarre when sitting in front of the TV with no signal and chatting alone. As it turned out, their house was built on top of an old cemetery and the souls were pouring their rage down on the Bowen family.

Devil’s Boundaries (2020) – Horror film based on real events

Demon Boundaries are based on a true story from the experiences of director Tord Danielsson. In 2014, he was in contact with a family that had just gone through mysterious events. They claim that there is a dark entity trying to capture the son, forcing the family to move elsewhere.

Shortly thereafter, it was Tord Danielsson’s turn to move into a flat-floor apartment. As the neighbor moved out, he kept hearing strange noises like someone going up and down the attic at exactly the same time every night. These scary memories are summarized into works by him with the expectation that will elevate the Swedish horror genre – which has produced quality works such as Let The Right One In (2008), The Woman in Black (2012) and Midsommar (2019).

The story of Demon’s Boundary will revolve around Shirin, with Fredrik and his son Lucas, who just bought a cheap cross-floor apartment in the suburbs. When Fredrik was forced to work away from home on the weekends, Lucas suddenly had a new friend from the abandoned house next door. At the same time, Shirin also began to witness horrifying events from the attic and realized a demonic force was plotting to possess Lucas’s soul.

The work exploits fear coming from a familiar context with creepy sounds in the middle of the night, children’s souls lurking in the dark or terror by forces beyond human understanding. Devil’s Boundary promises to be one of the most terrifying and creepy experiences at the end of this year.

Devil’s Boundary opens in theaters nationwide on November 6, 2020.
