Storyline

Diane works for a French firm bidding to purchase a Japanese animation outfit. Diane maliciously hatches a plot to take the job of her supervisor Karen. The plan succeeds, but then Diane faces problems when a competing American firm, represented by Elaine, becomes involved. Diane's assistant Elise remains loyal to Karen, and she frustrates Diane's every move. When it comes to light that the one of the concerned parties controls an Internet site which broadcasts actual torture, the plot thickens. Written by Ken Miller {wkmiller704@yahoo.com}

You got jumper cables?
18 March 2004 | by =G=See all my reviews

"Demonlover" needs a jump start to get it going. A slick thriller sans thrills, this cosmopolitan drama inches its way along with sinister rumbling undercurrents which rumble sinisterly though 90 minutes of sketchy thumbnail scenes which when pieced together create an aura of mystery and intrigue with the mystery being the answer to the question what the hell is this stupid film about and the intrigue being something to do with a website which is really, really, really hard to get into, unless you're a kid with Dad's Mastercard, having to do with torture and violent video games. A pathetic attempt at over-the-top film making recommended only for prefrontal lobotomites. (C-)
