"I wouldn't turn away from the truth, teacher."
24 February 2003 | by Backlash007See all my reviews

Buy two get one free. That's the only reason I bought this movie. The Irrefutable Truth About Demons was the only movie left in the bin that looked remotely interesting. Irony would have it that it turned out way better than the other two movies that I actually paid for. I was expecting a sh*tfest and I was very unexpectedly pleased with this film. I've said it before, that's what can make a good movie great. Karl Urban has a hand in making this a foreign horror gem as well. I recently saw him in the theater...twice; I happened to dig Ghost Ship and you may recognize him from some little movie called The Two Towers or something like that. If this guy keeps grabbing these kinds of roles, he could be one to watch for. The story centers around a cult in Lord of Illusions fashion called The Black Lodge (a Lynch reference?). It's not as great as Lord of Illusions, but it does a good job of keeping you on your toes. You never know what's in store for our hero from one encounter to another. There are quite a few complaints about it being boring, but I don't agree with that at all. It held my attention from first scene to last. And, thankfully, it keeps the CG to a minimum (just a few scenes, and they are awful). The end of the film was reminiscent of The Attic Expeditions in that you're not quite sure you know what's going on. Maybe that's the way it was supposed to be, or maybe they just couldn't think of a better ending. Either way, it's not a problem. My only quibble then, is that in the States, this movie is simply known as The Truth About Demons. I guess America's not ready for big words like "irrefutable."
