Silly but fun!
20 June 2003 | by rosscinemaSee all my reviews

This is one of those cheap horror flicks that was made strictly for video and you just can't take a film like this seriously so either skip it altogether or just have fun watching it. Story has a granny (Stella Stevens) who's family comes for a visit but they really try to knock her off for her inheritance. A strange man named Namon Ami (Luca Bercovici) comes by and gives her a potion that will give her eternal life but she can't allow it to be subjected to sunlight or else! Well, or else happens and when granny finally drinks it she later turns into a demon and she starts killing everyone in her family. The film is bloody and gory but its not the type of gore thats realistic so it remains on a lightweight level which helps the viewer. Of course in this type of exploitation there is nudity and Shannon Whirry and Heather Elizabeth Parkhurst are eye popping beautiful! No reason to really dislike this film because since it doesn't take itself seriously and the humor is tongue in cheek why would a viewer pick this apart? If you like these low budget horror films this one has some genuinely funny moments so just sit back and have fun!
