A British woman visits her husband at a Mexican mine that he is attempting to reopen and discovers that the workers refuse to enter the mine because of an ancient curse. The couple enters the mine to prove there is no danger and inadvertently releases a demon that possess people's left hands and forces them to behave in a suitably diabolical manner. The only way for a possessed person to free themselves from this torment is to cut off his/her left hand, after which it scurries away in search of its next victim.Written by
A comparison between the US version and the Mexican version shows that both contain different footage.
The face-crusher death scenes are more violent on the Media Home Entertainment version.
The Mexican version has an alternate soundtrack, extended dialog scenes, cut scenes, alternate death scenes, and a slightly different ending. However, it is missing the first three minutes of the satanic cult chopping the girl's hand off. See more »
...there's not much point in watching "Demonoid: Messenger of Death". Had they gone deeper into the history of how the first hand became a killer hand, maybe the movie would have been better. But just showing one scene of a cult, and then showing a husband and wife going into a Mexican mine and finding the remains of a temple, thereby releasing an evil hand? Not good enough.
Anyway, this isn't the worst movie (it's easily more interesting than "Baryshnya-Krestyanka" or "Everyone Says I Love You"). But they could have easily developed it further. I suspect that Samantha Eggar and Stuart Whitman don't try to stress this on their resumes. Pretty lame.
