WHAT IS ‘THE NEON DEMON’?

L.A., because of all the lights.”  Elle Fanning (Jesse)

Otherworldly beauty, but [also] the dark underbelly of that.” – Jena Malone (Ruby)

The industry and the city. It’s glossy and shiny but it will eat you alive.” – Bella Heathcote (Gigi)

A demonic force…camouflaged in glitter and stilettos.” – Abbey Lee (Sarah)

That kind of empty, shallow notoriety or celebrity that doesn’t really mean anything in the end and…eats people up and spits them out.” – Karl Glusman (Dean)

There’s something about the light – you can call it artificial light, but I guess all light is artificial besides the sun – and the neon quality of it. [There’s] something about those colors that attracts and repulses at the same time. And then there’s the demon part. What is the demon within; what is the demon on the outside? Is it ego? It may be a fear of death. Or desire. It’s all sorts of fun stuff.” – Keanu Reeves (Hank)

It makes me think of speed and a bunch of lights on Sunset. And the devil.” – Desmond Harrington (Jack)

The dark underbelly of beauty and the things we would do for beauty.” – Christina Hendricks (Roberta)

You have to talk to Nic about the title.” – Mary Laws, co-writer

A great cover for a fetish magazine.” – Nicolas Winding Refn, Director, Screenwriter

Heading for the flashing light and the glamour but also that there’s something twisted and a darker side to it.” – Lene Børglum, Producer

The word neon is a reflection of the location; the word demon is a reflection of the obsession.” – Rachel Dik, Executive Producer

It feels a little bit banal to try and explain it because it’s kind of the essence of the movie and whatever I say in Englishis going to sound very cheesy.” – Natasha Braier, Cinematographer

When you see neon lights, you think something is super glamorous. And I think that’s probably very misleading in most cases.” – Nicole Daniels, Casting Director

The demon within is highlighted? I don’t know.” – Courtney Bright, Casting Director

It’s going to be a title of one of the musical pieces.” – Cliff Martinez, Composer

It means it’s scary, you know? And I think it’s exciting, you know?” – Alex Uceda, Caterer (Alex in the Kitchen)
