Empire of the dark.... The highlight of my New years day 2003
31 May 2017 | by paulmichaelgraySee all my reviews

Hello All,

firstly i am over the moon to see that someone else has watched this film. Like they have said. This film is terrible. I remember going to New years eve party in 2002 and having a pretty terrible time of life (i wont go into it). My mam picked me up the next day from the party and took me home. I was ridiculously hungover and could hardly function. I was only 17 at the time (hardcore). She told me her friend and had picked this video up from a 1 Dinar shelf (1 pound 75 pence). She said Paul... You have to watch this. So begrudgingly i started to watch it. It started off pretty poor and it wasn't until the future when the demons arrive again that it got entertaining. Entertaining is probably the wrong word. I cannot lie to you here. I was on the floor laughing so hard my stomach was in pain. There is a specific fight scene where Steve or Richard fights off about 20 demons. Its quite strange how all the demons are wearing CATERPILLAR boots and blue jeans. Yes pretty much these 20 demons are in reality around 3 people pretending to be the other 17. I will not give anything else away.

So,

If you somehow stumble across this film in the shop or you stumble across this review. Please buy this NOW and watch it. Have a few beers... enjoy yourself because it is the greatest most terrible film i have ever seen!

'RICHARD, SAVE MY BAAABY'!!
