Acid Daemons is an independent horror movie to be shooting in Leicester, England during 2016.
This is a story of parallel worlds, almost perfectly superimposed on each other. One world is the run-down housing estate in which Hannah, our protagonist, has spent her teenage years. But turn your head quickly and you might just glimpse the other world – a time and space of daemons.
Hannah and her brother Carlo live on the 18th floor of a housing block in the middle of the estate. But two floors below, a chemist has set up a kitchen sink laboratory. In a dream he saw a new designer drug. Now he has cooked it up.
When Carlo tries it, he glimpses the daemon world. Then he disappears into it. Hannah becomes convinced the only way to rescue him is by taking the drug herself and following. Is this hallucination or is it reality? And what will happen if she leaves a doorway open between the two worlds?
Newcomers from Nottingham Television Workshop, which can count Samantha Morton (Minority Report), Vicky McClure (This Is England) and Jack O’Connell (Skins) among its former members, we have Ella Roebuck-Swain (19) as our leading character, Hannah, and 16 year old Jack Dewick playing Carlo, Hanna’s brother. Joining them is Jon Campling ( Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows ) as the chemist Talis and Kieran Hardcastle ( This Is England ) as Cooper.
