Lee Daniels (“Previous,” “The Paperboy,” “The Butler”) is set to direct the true story horror tale “Demon House” for Relativity says Variety.
The story deals with the Ammons family of Gary, Indiana who claimed to be victims of demonic possession. Latoya Ammons and her three children asserted in 2011 and 2012 that the children experienced episodes of levitation, strangling one another and speaking in growls.
The Gary Police Department, Department of Child Services and the local church filed reports about the supernatural occurrences and exorcisms were performed with police standing by.
One DCS case manager witnessed the youngest son growling with eyes rolled back, locking his hands around his older brother’s throat – with no subsequent recollection of the incident.
The Ammons family moved out in 2012 and the new residents have not experienced any supernatural occurrences. Jackson Nguyen, Todd Crites and Bruce Cohen are producing.
