Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

Zak Bagans, the host of Travel Channel's Ghost Adventures, wrote and directed Demon House, the second film he has made since 2004.[1] The film is based on the "mass hysteria" which surrounded the 2014 alleged demonic possession in Gary, Indiana of the Ammons family.[2][3]

Release[edit]

The film will play in select theaters nationwide before its digital release on March 16, 2018.[4]

Reception[edit]

On review aggregator website Rotten Tomatoes, the film holds an approval rating of 43% based on 6 reviews, an Audience Rating of 68%, and an average rating of 4.2/10.[5]

Steve Barton of Dread Central said the film was "single most compelling documentaries on the existence of the supernatural that I’ve ever witnessed".[6]

Noel Murray writing for The Los Angeles Times said of the film "Zak Bagans' documentary "Demon House" is essentially an uncensored, overlong episode of his long-running Travel Channel series Ghost Adventures. And while this particular "paranormal investigation" may terrify the more credulous among Bagans' fan base, skeptics are likely to feel bored and confused." [7]
