Australian demonic family drama The Demon Disorder stars John Noble (“The Lord of the Rings” trilogy, Fringe), Charles Cottier (Wanted, Home and Away), Christian Willis (Home and Away, Deadbeat Dads), and Dirk Hunter (Irreverent, Upright).

The film centers on Graham (Willis), a man haunted by his past since the death of his father (Noble) and estrangement from his two brothers. Jake (Hunter), the middle brother, contacts Graham, claiming that something is horribly wrong: their youngest brother, Phillip (Cottier), is possessed by their deceased father. Graham reluctantly agrees to go and see for himself. With the three brothers back together, they soon realize that they are unprepared for the forces against them and learn that the sins of their past will not stay hidden.

But how do you defeat a presence that knows you inside and out? An anger so powerful that it refuses to stay dead?

Featuring in the film are Amy Ingram (Apples Never Fall), Michael Tuahine (Upright), and Tobie Webster (Neighbours).

The Demon Disorder will make its exclusive streaming debut on Shudder in Fall 2024 (date tba).

Written and directed by award-winning special effects master Steven Boyle (“The Matrix” and “The Hobbit” trilogies, King Kong), along with Toby Osborne (Pindam, Final Faction) as writer, the film is produced by Boyle and Ally Muller and executive produced by Michael Spierig and Peter Spierig.

Said Boyle:

“We are thrilled that THE DEMON DISORDER has reached its final resting place with our friends at Shudder. It’s a community and fanbase that we hold in the highest esteem and we couldn’t be happier to be on this journey with them!”

Samuel Zimmerman, Head of Programming for Shudder, stated:

“After years of a creating a range of elaborate visual experiences through his work as a special effects designer on iconic films, we’re thrilled to give Steven Boyle a platform for his feature length directorial debut with THE DEMON DISORDER. Full of impressive body horror that fans have come to expect from this master of effects, Boyle’s film is an engrossing story about breaking generational curses that viewers will find both unsettling and amusing.”

The deal was negotiated by Emily Gotto on behalf of Shudder and James Norrie and Nina Kolokouri at AMP on behalf of the filmmakers.

Stay tuned for updates.
