Goofs

Professor Nugent's face is bandaged in the opening sequence, and the rest of the movie is a flashback to how his face became mutilated. In the beginning scenes, his face is bandaged so that the entire upper half of his face looks normal. However, when we see the actual incident where his face gets burned, his entire face is burned to the point of causing death by trauma and dehydration. See more »

Noone's mentioned the best scene!!
18 October 2000 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Find another bigfoot movie that has a guy getting his dick yanked off by a Sasquatch! I nearly pulled a hamstring running to shut the TV off when I saw that scene! The red stuff flows throughout the film. Ol' Bigfoot even uses a guy's entrails as an offensive weapon. "Legend of Boggy Creek" will always be #1 to this Bigfoot fan, but "Night of the Demon" is the Bigfoot film genre's "weird uncle that nobody likes to talk about". I suggest you haunt your local video stores until you find a copy. I believe it was last released in the US in the late 80's on the Gemstone Entertainment budget label.
