Did You Know?

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 »

Quotes

Warren: One thing I do know is that there isn't any Bigfoot in these woods, here or anywhere else. It's just another version of the Loch Ness Monster. Still, you can't really blame people for making things up if it makes their own lives seem more interesting...

Bigfoot loves blood, babes, and RAWR!!!
2 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is the definition of "so bad it's good"! Night of the Demon boasts some of the most atrocious production values in the scenes with it's human characters - yet this somehow adds to the reality of the sequences featuring Bigfoot - enhancing it in an almost documentary cinema verite sort of way. If you don't ask for too much depth and pretentiousness from of your horror you could be very happy with what you find here! Unintentionally hilarious at times, gruesome at others, Night of the Demon even manages to be slightly chilling in some moments.Night of the Demon features all the things that make cheesy horror great: bad acting, slimy gore, gratuitous nudity, and BIGFOOT! Night of the Demon may mot be the greatest Bigfoot movie ever - but it is surely the most fun!
