Storyline

Premutos is the first of the fallen Angels, even before Lucifer. His Goal is to rule the world, the living and the dead. His son should pave the way for him and appears arbitrary throughout human history and is then recognized as some kind of monster. In the present time, a young man living in Germany begins to suffer from visionary flashbacks - of the lives he lived in the past as Premutos' son! He remembers how he appeared in the middle age, when mankind suffered from pestilence and during WWII in Russia. On his (earthly) father's birthday, a case containing some strange old book and a yellow potion is found in their garden, which was hidden by some peasant in 1943, who experimented with witchery in order to re-animate his deceased wife. Whe the young man gets in touch with the book and some of the yellow potion, he mutates into a monster and awakens an army of zombies, ready to bring back the fallen Angel Premutos and to disturb the little birthday party...

A poor man's Dead Alive.
5 January 2006 | by (The IMDb Horror Board!) – See all my reviews

The story goes something like this. Premutos, a fallen angel (before Satan), wants to rule the living and dead of the world and tries to do so throughout history, possessing a guy of the same bloodline. Now in present time he comes back again by accident of the current guy in this cursed family. The story really doesn't matter though.

This movie is a mess and I mean that in several ways. The acting, story, and budget are Troma level or worse. In all fairness, the story may have been damaged in the translation though.

It's another type of mess that makes this film so infamous though. It is a huge splatterfest! This is where the film shines. It has beheadings, dismemberment, hundreds of bullet shots, full body explosions, and much more. Clearly, this is what most of the budget went to. You will also see slow motion gunplay like in John Woo's films and comedic lines and gore like in Peter Jackson's early films. Speaking of Jackson, Braindead/Dead Alive (1992) is often compared with Premutos because they are so similar. While Premutos may be a little bit darker in tone at times, I think Braindead easily beats it in every area including gore. The body counter at the end of Premutos was pretty cool though.

The DVD had a 50-minute "making of" feature that seemed pretty interesting, at least the bit of it I watched. Overall, if you liked Braindead, you might want to check this out sometime.
