Not nearly as good as you might think..., 2 April 2014
Author: planktonrules from Bradenton, Florida

I noticed before watching "She Demons" that the film has an overall score of 4.3 on IMDb. While this is pretty bad, it's really far worse. I think a fair score would be either 1 or, perhaps, 2--no higher.

The film begins with a bunch of stock disaster footage. Then the 'action' (such as it is) cuts to an island where four folks recently washed ashore during this hurricane. One is a 'red shirt'--soon to die. Another is an Asian-American bit of comic relief. One is a hero with about as much charisma as a tuna sandwich. The final is a hot blonde who is inexplicably angry at everyone during the first half of the film. Soon these folks realize that they are really screwed. The island is about to be used for bombing practice by the US Air Force AND it's populated by both crazed extremely well-groomed dancing girls AND Nazis!! This is certainly one of the strangest combinations in film history!

So why are the Nazis there? Well, a crazy old scientist (a Dr. Mengele- type) has been doing experiments on geo-thermal energy as well as work on making his hideously disfigured wife look normal again. These latter experiments involve the dancing girls who were kidnapped and are injected with a serum that makes them look like someone poured peanut butter all over their faces and gave them really crappy dental work. While there are only about a half dozen Nazis, the newcomers (who now number only three) have the advantage because they have the hero (who, frankly, isn't all that heroic or macho) and the angry PMS-driven blonde lady! Why no one even once mentions to the Nazis that the war has been over for many years is odd, by the way!

During the course of this incredibly silly film, you don't need to look all that carefully to notice that the stunt doubles sometimes have different color hair than the folks they are doubling for in the movie! Additionally, at one point one of the old Nazis is tossed into a wall and the wall shakes back and forth because it's obviously not a real wall!! Add to this ridiculous dialog and a dumb plot and you pretty much have "She Demons".
