Has good and bad points
15 October 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

When I began watching this I had high hopes, because it begins with a burning skeleton on a cross. Now there's a way to begin a horror movie! After this things get a little cliché, but that's not a bad thing in my book. The setting for Demon Wind is great and I love the atmosphere - the whistling wind sounds are really spooky. As the group are travelling in the car, there's a great scene where the camera shows a nest with an egg in, which slowly hatches to reveal...maggots! I thought that scene was cool. When they arrive at their destination they find the skeleton that was shown at the beginning of the film.

Demon Wind is let down however by the slow pacing - it needed a bit more action and less talking. The ending contains a fair bit of action but seemed a little muddled.

Overall, this is a lot better than many of the crappy 80's horror films and I would definitely recommend giving it a watch. It has a lot of nice touches and a great atmosphere that is worth checking out. Some people will moan that it rips off Evil Dead (and it does), but who cares?
