Shudder has now announced the acquisition of The Demon Disorder, a tale of family, healing, and demons, from special effects master Steven Boyle, who worked on The Matrix Trilogy, The Hobbit Trilogy, and King Kong. Shudder has also released the trailer for the highly anticipated film, which marks Boyle’s feature directorial debut.

The Australian demonic family drama stars John Noble (Lord of the Rings Trilogy), Charles Cottier, Christian Willis, and Dirk Hunter. The film centers on Graham, a man haunted by his father’s death and his brothers’ estrangement. Jake contacts Graham, claiming that something is horribly wrong: their youngest brother, Phillip, is possessed. Graham reluctantly agrees to go and see what’s going on for himself. But the brothers soon realize they are unprepared for the forces they are about to face.

“After years of a creating a range of elaborate visual experiences through his work as a special effects designer on iconic films, we’re thrilled to give Steven Boyle a platform for his feature length directorial debut with THE DEMON DISORDER,” said Samuel Zimmerman, Head of Programming for Shudder. “Full of impressive body horror that fans have come to expect from this master of effects, Boyle’s film is an engrossing story about breaking generational curses that viewers will find both unsettling and amusing.”

Emily Gotto negotiated the deal on behalf of Shudder and James Norrie and Nina Kolokouri at AMP on behalf of the filmmakers.

Directed by Boyle, who co-wrote the script with Toby Osborne (Pindam), The Demon Disorder is produced by Boyle and Ally Muller. Executive producers include Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig.
