What a nightmare
6 May 2016 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

Oh dear... I just want to know how it was possible to make this mess. Who greenlighted it? Who made it? Why? I happen to be a child of the 80s. I dig the 80s. I could spend the rest of my life watching movies from the 80s. However, that decade gave us not only a huge number of great films, but also a lot of really bad, cheesy, and utterly misguided ones. 'My Demon Lover' is one of these films.

It's supposed to be a romantic comedy mixed with horror. Now that alone is an ambitious goal, and very few films have successfully pulled it off. Ultimately the film fails as a comedy and a horror and a romantic movie. It is boring and pointless. The romance is the most superficial one I have ever seen, the attempts at humour are pathetic and the horror is just awkward, not scary, and outright dull. For all that silly stuff going on, the film ends up being tedious. It doesn't make you care about the characters or the plot. It doesn't scare you, it doesn't make you laugh... After about ten minutes I was already bored and I knew the film would not get better. I was right. It's a total failure in every scene from beginning to end.

Avoid this. It's not even one of those 'so bad it's good' films. It's just boring, boring, boring.
