The Black Demon Overview
A tale infused with familial dilemma and sci-fi tropes, The Black Demon features Josh Lucas in the lead role as Paul Struges, an oil rig tester for Nixon Oil. Sturges drags his wife, Ines (Fernanda Urrejola), and children, Audrey (Venus Ariel) and Tommy (Carlos Solórzano) along with him for a short work-trip-slash-vacation. The Sturges clan arrives in El Diamante, harbouring deep animosity and several misunderstandings, to discover that the town is dilapidated. A couple of decades back, Diamante was a flourishing town brimming with welcoming and kind-hearted people. But now, due to Nixon Oil’s rigs, it has become a desert surrounded by untrustworthy residents.
As Paul starts inspecting the oil rig and the spill surrounding it, he crafts an audit report but before he can report it back, his boat is destroyed by a megalodon shark. Though Paul manages to get out unscathed for the time being, he realizes the danger lurking before them. While the only remaining crew members Chato (Julio Cesar Cedillo) and Junior (Jorge A. Jimenez), try and warn him not to cross paths with the herald of Tlaloc, it becomes impossible for Paul not to.
The Black Demon 2 Plot
By the end of the film, the megalodon leaves only corpses and destruction in its wake. Paul has to make a crucial decision to salvage his family from becoming the next target. He accomplishes his mission of protecting his family and sealing the oil rig. But the Sturges family is left torn apart. To destroy the megalodon, Paul strapped a bomb around himself and became the former’s meal, destroying it wholly. Ines and her children, stumped by Paul’s death, return back to the shore with concrete evidence against Nilson Oil.
If The Black Demon 2 is approved soon, it could be centred around Ines’ struggle for justice against the multimillion-dollar oil company. While there are multiple story arcs available for the film to adapt and continue, a legal battle remains prominent. Whatever the storyline might be, it is sure to be filled with action, adventure and thrill.
