How BAD can a film be?
15 April 2003 | by KaruneshSee all my reviews

"Demon Under Glass"...awful, simply AWFUL! This film is well renowned (read "infamous") on the Internet because it was funded on money that was raised through a somewhat bogus "offical fan club" (and anyway, how can you know your a "fan" if you haven't seen the movie yet?)...But enough about it's dubious origins. How does DUG stand up on it's own as a sci-fi/horror film? About as well as a legless man with no crutches! Seriously, I have seen plenty of genre films over the years, and the writing here is perhaps the worst I've EVER heard, even in "B" movies! Given that the only previous writing experience of the screenwriter was in the wierd world of Star Trek & Sentinel "Slash fiction", the lack of quality dialogue and/or meaningful plot structure is not at all surprising (and if you don't know what slash fiction is, consider yourself among the lucky!) The direction is so slipshod and amature that it makes one long for the quality work of the late Ed Wood! Many scenes just seem to be there to fill up time, and they end up making the film drag. A full 30 to 40 minutes could have been trimmed off with no real loss of story continuity. Many of the supporting actors are embarassingly bad in their roles, particularly the one playing the 'Gung Ho' young Marine (this guy should seriously have his Screen Actors Guild card revoked by an act of Congress!) Most male viewers would find actress Kira Reed attractive to look at, but her character seems to serve no other purpose but to give the film some quick nudity, just so that the filmmakers could get that important R-Rating (important in Horror film circles anyway). Oh, and who did this music? Tangerine Nightmare? Hey, I am usually a big fan of synth music, but this stuff is just insufferable and contains not one memorable melody. It seems like they were going for a creepy "X-Files"-styled soundtrack, but they really missed the boat. Perhaps the only redeeming quality here is that two of the lead actors, Jason Carter (of TV's Babylon 5) and Garett Maggart (of TV's The Sentinel), sometimes manage to do a good job despite the horrid (no, not "horror", I said "HORRID") material they are given to work with. Maggart, in particular, would do well to run far FAR away from any future projects with this production company, and find work that more favorably uses the comedic talents he displayed so well on The Sentinel. Well, what else can I say. If you are looking for thoughtful, quality Horror; this sure as heck isn't Edgar Allan Poe or Alfred Hitchcock! And if you are looking for quality Sci-fi, there are many better place to look than this, both on film and on TV! Even if you are fan of the actors, this is one to avoid.
