Revenge of the 80's films! Rubbish, absolute rubbish.

My Demon Lover (1987) is an exercise in futility. A film like this should be tossed into a dustbin and never see the light of day. Sadly folks many of these films saw their hey day during this time period. People want to complain about the films that are being made today need to take a look back during the 80's and see what was being made.

Well, My Demon Lover stars that loser from Family Ties and that actress from the equally bad 80's flick Sweet Revenge. Inane acting and a junkie plot doom this film from the get go. They should have had more demons and less love. After this came out I was wondering 'what's next, the Art of Being Nick on the silver screen?"

Avoid like the plague...
