While a wave of child kidnappings takes place in Montreal, Felix is finishing his school year in an apparently quiet neighborhood. Slowly, his imaginary demons start to reflect the ones present in the disturbing reality around him.

Lassage signs his film just like Carpenter did: Philipe Lassage’s The Demons. And while monsters are metaphors for internal fears in classic horror, here we have the exact opposite. The Demons is shot lie Halloween, with long sequence shots, but they’re shorter and ore intimate. They happen in a bedroom, in a locker room, in a birthday party. The fears in Lassage’s film are what they are, unmasked: Felix is ten years old and he’s discovering his sexuality with guilt; his parents are going through a marriage crisis, and he is filled with uncertainties. Meanwhile, children start to disappear in Montreal. The demons in The Demons range from tiny knotty ones to actual bogie men. The unexpected happy ending with the song “Pata, pata” is as liberating as getting a fear (and a psycopath) out of your system. DA
