Talk about fighting your inner demons. NEON’s gearing up to drop a new horror flick, It Lives Inside, and it looks plenty creepy. 

The story follows an Indian teen struggling to fit in at school. But the usual terrors of being a teenager pale in comparison to the dark, demonic force that soon latches itself onto someone she cares about.

“It doesn’t kill you right away. It eats you slowly,” warns the ominous voiceover in the trailer.

Check out the trailer for It Lives Inside yourself below.

Here’s the official synopsis of It Lives Inside from NEON:

Sam is desperate to fit in at school, rejecting her Indian culture and family to be like everyone else. When a mythological demonic spirit latches onto her former best friend, she must come to terms with her heritage in order to defeat it.

It Lives Inside comes from writer/director Bishal Dutta. The film stars Megan Suri, Neeru Bajwa, Mohana Krishnan, Vik Sahay, Gage Marsh, Beatrice Kitsos, and Betty Gabriel.

It also recently won the Midnighter Audience Award at SXSW.
