An oddity perhaps best left buried, 12 February 2002
Author: stephen-63 from stockport, england

Two episodes of 13 Demon Street were released on The Veil DVD: The Vine of Death and The Black Hand. The series was unaired, but a movie was made by reediting and released as The Devils Messenger. The TV episodes themselves? Cut out characters and very poor acting (think typical Swedish B movie from the 60's) really do not help the illogical stories much. Too poor to even laugh at, and no room for the intended horror. The Vine of Death for example deals with an imported dried out vine root from Malaya, only three thousand years old. The professor is stabbed by his neighbour in a struggle over the cold emotionless wife.

Oh dear. My husband is dead. Oh dear. Instead of calling the police they bury the husband with the vine. Which grows. Later, the neighbour returns, very drunk and collapses. Onto the vine bed. It kills him. I seem to have made it sound rather better than the episode... whatever were they thinking of. Some of the actors seemed to be speaking Swedish but then dubbed into English and then Swedish subtitles added. The picture quality is good. Strictly for the collector of the really awful.
