(B)lackadaisical Demons, 6 December 2016
Author: Bezenby from United Kingdom

Ah, Umberto...what happened here? This man gave us Ghosthouse and House of Lost Souls and to a lesser extent House of Witchcraft, all fairly enjoyable late eighties Italian horror films, so what happened here? Is it because he didn't put the word 'house' in the titles? What we have is three folks,a girl and her boyfriend and her weird brother out on holiday in Brazil. Soon enough her brother picks up a copy of Now That's What I Call Voodoo Rituals VOL8 and before you know it six black demons are all up looking for The Fog type revenge on the white guy.

Sounds good, right? Well, it takes a long time before anything good starts happening, as these zombie/demon/slave types just seem to like standing around brandishing stuff. About fifty minutes in roughly things pick up a bit as the zombies make themselves known and there a bit of this and that with the killing and what not.

By no means a lost Lenzi classic, this is a poor low budget mess that somehow still makes a lot more sense than anything Fulci was producing at the time. I would have paid money for this in the past, but I'm glad that it's there on YouTube to watch. The Lenzi-man (after whom the Scottish town of Lenzie is named) did much better.
