NYPD detectives Shepard and Powell are working on a bizarre case of a ritualistic Aztec murder. Meanwhile, something big is attacking people of New York and only greedy small time crook Jimmy Quinn knows where its lair is.
A British woman visits her husband at the Mexican mine he is attempting to reopen and discovers that the workers refuse to enter the mine fearing an ancient curse. The couple enter the mine to prove there is no danger and inadvertently release a demon which possess people's left hands and forces them to behave in a suitably diabolical manner. The only way for a possessed person to free themselves from this torment is to cut off their left hand after which it scurries away in search of its next victim. Written by
I saw Demonoid very late one night, intrigued by the weird sounding plot. The plot is indeed very strange and a touch nonsensical, but the movie has such a fast pace that I never questioned any of the happenings too much. Some of the dialogue is hilarious, as are the occasional action sequences. The acting is as low rent as you might expect, except Samantha Eggar, who is as pretty and talented as ever. The effects are cheap looking, but effectively gruesome for the most part and funny when they aren't. The film begins very well, with a potent surreal feel to some of the early sequences, especially down the mine. The endings classy too. This is one of the best killer hand movies I've seen, certainly the oddest (and I really dig the oddness). Well recommended to connoisseurs of the obscure and bizarre, anyone looking for conventional film making qualities or coherence will be less well served. Best to watch at 3AM with a lot of beer/cheap cider.
