The demon is decent
6 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most people reviewing this movie panned it. Fair enough, the plot is clichéd, not much gore, kinda slow. But I liked the atmosphere, and the dialog, especially the Cameron Mitchell stuff, is good for sampling. "The time of the demon, our demon is close at hand" "she's high, high up, she's floating, floating" And unlike others, I found that the filmmakers made good use of the South African location. All in all, a creepy atmospheric cheese ball of a movie, well written, well acted and well filmed on an almost nonexistent budget. I feel as if i now know how it feels to be a young south African school teacher being stalked by a shadowy creep in the late 70's.
