Really better than it should've been
30 January 2014 | by kannibalcorpsegrinderSee all my reviews

After gathering together for a party, a group of bikers realize something's wrong with one of their members when they start behaving erratically, but that's only the start of their troubles when Satanic demons arrive at the party looking for one of their own.

This was a really interesting effort that gets some really enjoyable moments about it. Ironically, this is mostly due to the fact that it doesn't decide what it wants to be works in its favor remarkably well. Initially starting off as a biker film for the first half, complete with the trials and tribulations of the crew and their business dealings before getting to the party. Once there, it turns into a rather fun and enjoyable enough possession film about one turning into a demonic creature which is where this one really gets fun in not only using the house as a fun stalking ground but also with the possession allowing for plenty of tense encounters with the constant yelling, graphic attacks and restraint attempts that are brought on against the possessed which makes for quite a fun time overall. This signals another part here with it turning into a plot by Satanic demons in '50s hipster outfits that stalls this one somewhat with a really banal knife-fight as well as the fine birthing sequence itself which comes off the best of these scenes in here. These here make for a nice series of twists which makes for quite an interesting and jarring look that it works in making it enjoyable by weaving these seemingly different elements together. As well, with the fine gore and nudity there's enough which holds this up alongside the few small flaws. The biggest factor here with this one comes from the final half, where this one tends to get lowered slightly by the appearance of the villains as their retro-greaser look might not be as scary as it could've been since they look pretty laughable while the slang and taunts eventually grow thin since these scenes eventually add up to untold amounts of time doing nothing, which is only afterward in thinking about it so it's not so bad. As well, there's nothing about the true intentions or relationship here as it turns into their lame attempts at taunting the group rather than simply letting loose with their plan from their start, compounded from the start here as they themselves mention the need to toy with them while it plays the course so there's little need for them to show up when they did if the process was never really that close to being finished anyway. Still, it works well and is definitely fun enough.

Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Full Nudity and several sex scenes.
