A hybrid of Michele Soavi Demons (1985) & David Cronenberg's Rabid (1977)
15 February 2015 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Directed by Richard Griffin who has a prolific career in the low budget indie circuit that spans fifteen years.

Raving Maniacs is about four Goth teens, who attend the biggest party of the year, the "Rave from the Grave" Hence part of the title (Raving), get it? They nearly knock over a man who has a supply of a new drug, that is fluorescent green, and they have no qualms in taking the drug ASAP. Little do they know that the drug will have deadly side effects.

As my summary (above) states, this did remind me a lot of Demons (1985) and Rabid (1977). Firstly, the film is set in a night club, that looks very much like a theatre and some of the lighting of the demons walking around reminded me of that (lit from behind in silhouette). Then there is the concept of people being possessed and becoming sexual deviants, hence the Rabid reference.

I enjoyed this feature and thought it to be a commendable effort on a low budget. Character development was good and we got to know the teens before they were placed in peril. Sound was good and all dialogue was audible. Effects were good and some quite gory.

All in all gets a thumbs up from me.
