“How to Bind a Demon” is a Comedy/Horror short film set in Northern Ireland

A short summary 

We are raising £300 to make a short film called 'How to Bind a Demon'. Its a comedy horror set in Northern Ireland.

Whats the film about?

“How to Bind a Demon” is a comedy horror which follows Aoife and Emily, two young women who

have discovered an ancient book of spells, in what seems to be a dead language. Aoife convinces

hesitant Emily to come with her to an abandoned barn to cast a spell from the book that she has

deciphered using Google translate. Aoife and Emily believe they are summoning a Genie to grant

them a wish but in an occult twist, accidentally summon and bind Aoife to a demon named Amos.

The girls attempt to separate themselves by physical means whilst Amos watches them in disbelief.

They eventually agree that the only way to separate them is for Amos to grant Aoife’s wish, which he

cannot do, so they have to go the long road and work for it to come true. In order to blend in with

the rest of the world, Amos possesses Emily and they set off to grant Aoife’s wish... Fame.
