Gore, nudity, cheese. What more d'ya need, 17 July 2007
Author: t-birkhead from United Kingdom

Just saw this, and although it didn't feature any insight into the human condition, or scares, or even sense, it was plentifully entertaining. Bobbie Bresee may not be the greatest actress on the planet, but she ain't the worst and she sure is a looker. She turns into a demon, and inventively gory things happen, as well as very variable monster effects. The demon design looked ace at times (in a cheesy early eighties way) and ropey in others. It definitely kept me smiling. The plot was pretty silly and there wasn't nearly enough explanation for what was going on. The acting was reasonable, with the main three characters all coming off OK and everyone else was just kill fodder so they didn't need to be too convincing. The nudity from Bobbie Bresee was just the ticket, and the gore was nice and splattery. I noticed John Buechler was responsible for the creature effects, it kinda made sense cause they were pretty reminiscent of his work in general. Some of the effects didn't work so well, but then there are a lot worse out there. All in all, this was good mindless, sleazy gory fun, not a classic, but no slouch either. Best viewed at 2.30 or later
