Inner Demons

Synopsis: INNER DEMONS follows an 'Intervention'-style reality show crew that films an episode about a sixteen-year old girl, a former A-student, who is fighting addiction but may in fact be suffering from something even more destructive: demonic possession. The movie is an inquiry into the truth about her - with symptoms that straddle the disturbing and scary intersection between insanity, addiction and true possession.

One more time!

No, I didn't see the...

Don't hurt your back.

We don't have worker's comp.

Give me a hand?



I'm documenting this.

Yeah. I told you,

you can just come over to my room.

Under my special

skills on my rsum.

I'm sure it is.

It's probably the only

thing that's there.


I bet you I can get tears

in the first interview.

Who? Mom or Dad?

Don't insult me.

All right.

What's the bet, then?

Um... Sizzler.

That salad bar will run you up.

And the dessert tray.

Can I ask you... can

I ask you guys a question?

- What?

- God.

What's the story with the girl?

She's a garbage-pail user.

Oxies, benzos.

Dad was a drunk.

Probably beat her up.

I'm thinking molested.


We'll find out.

What are oxies and benzos?

- Is that what you said?

- Wow! Are you kidding me?

Where did you find this guy?

Why hire professionals when

we've got craigslist over here?

You guys know

I'm hearing this, right?

I'm so sorry.

Where did the company

get your rsum again?


How much longer, film school?

Um, I'm almost done.

- You're almost done?

- Yeah.

Mic one, mic two.

My God.

Mic two.

Are we good?

Yeah, we're ready.

Let's go.

I look into the camera,

or do I...

Is it too late to want

to go to the bathroom?


Okay, so,

let's start from the beginning.

What are your earliest

memories about Carson?

When she was born,

she was so perfect.

She was a blessing...

an absolute blessing.

She liked to tag along, you

know, with me, and she would,

you know, pretend to do the same

things that I was doing and...

She's good and nice and kind

and, um, is really

smart and talented.

She loved Sunday school.

She practically

memorized the whole Bible.

You could, name any verse,

she could quote it

right back to you.

We are religious.

We go to church every Sunday.

Carson too?

She used to.

She got a scholarship

to, Eastlake.

It's a real prestigious

Catholic school.

We're not even Catholic.

That's how smart she is.

Does my hair look okay?

- Yeah, you look great.

- Okay.

Carson came to Eastlake

junior year,

and she really didn't know

anybody, you know?

She was new.

But I kind of always try

to be nice to the new kids.

You know, I mean, yeah,

it's a Catholic school,

but it doesn't mean

everyone has religion.

But she did, and she was always

wanting to do the right thing

and... she just wanted to fit in.

I miss hanging out with her.

I miss her.

I just...

like, I can't

hang out with a junkie.

Just one second.

Sorry about that.

No, just doing your job.

There we go.

Can you do me a favor

and tell me...

Okay, here we go.

What is your full name?

Carson Morris.

And what is your drug of choice?


Put that in a complete

sentence for me.

Your mother told

me you can quote

practically the whole

Bible from memory.

Not the whole Bible, but...

I know a lot of verses.

I-I used to.

Jason, hand me that Bible

behind you, please.

Hebrews 2:

I know that one.

"For because He has suffered

when being tempted,

He is able to help

those being tempted."

I nailed that.

Yes, you did.

That was very cool.

Very cool, Carson.

Why are you filming me?

I just want you to see yourself.

Stop filming me!

She started to argue a lot.

We just thought it was just

some kind of teenage

rebellion kind of thing, but...

Eastlake is very expensive,

and these weren't

the kind of kids

that Carson was

used to being around.

I don't know, I guess

she just wanted to fit in,

and she didn't.

She'd start going out at night

and she wouldn't come home,

call or anything.
