Demon Resurrection (DVD Review)2 Jan, 2011 By: Billy Gil
As far as low low-budget horror fare goes, you can do worse than Demon Resurrection.
The movie starts out as a bunch of friends show up at Grace’s house for an intervention — they think she’s doing some sort of drug. Far from it: Her partner, John, has been studying cults, and she’s gotten a little too close to his studies.
OK, it’s pretty much nonsense. Characters and acting are afterthoughts. The first 45 minutes or so drag, save for a pretty softcore pornish scene in the woods.
But low-budget horror fans will be gratified by the second half, in which it’s revealed that Grace has been chosen to bear a new race — check out the scene where she actually births the critter; it’s as disgusting and perverse as you can get. There’s lots of blood, disembowelment, the walking dead eating screaming victims, some gratuitous nudity, the classic exploitation stuff. It doesn’t come close to reinventing the grindhouse wheel, but it gets the job done.
Also of interest: a 30-minute behind-the-scenes documentary featurette that shows in detail how some of the movie’s cool effects were created on the cheap, and an awesome demonstration of the puppet used for Grace’s unholy offspring.
