In a dark castle nestled deep in the Italian countryside, Arnold Berger, an elderly man with a secret medical technology, is brutally murdered. At the reading of his will, his friends and family discover that the murderer was not apprehended - and is still stalking the halls of the grand estate.

Alone in the labyrinthine manor for a three-day weekend, the group slowly disappears. Who - or what - killed Arnold Berger ... and when will its bloodlust be sated?

Demonium is a dark and gothic thriller in the typical style of the Italian and Mediterranean cinema of the 60s and 70s, and presents Charlotte Roche (VJane from VIVA's Fast Forward and Adolf Grimme Award-nominee) in her film debut as Diana Sammer.
