Spying on demons with video cameras
At this point, it’s impossible to feel for a character that loses his or her life after enraging a camera-shy demon. Haven’t you seen Paranormal Activity, The Blair Witch Project, The Last Exorcism or one of the countless other films that try to catch a paranormal entity in the act?
If you try to make your demon buddy the star of a home movie, you’re going to die – period. The storyline has been used and abused to the point that there’s no more element of surprise; you always know what’s coming. Unless you’ve figured out an ingenious way to break the mold, tuck this scenario away. It’s run its course.
