"This is an odd little stalker film shot (cheaply) in Johannesburg and obviously trying to be a South Africa's answer to HALLOWEEN. It concerns a pair of topless nursery school teachers who are being stalked by a guy in a white mask (not so original, yes). The virginal damsel in distress is Jennifer Holmes, who played the maid on NEWHART before she was replaced by the more-popular Julia Duffy. The film print used for the DVD is grainy and dark and the film has the same production values and look as the old "Police Story" crime series of the late 1970's. However, the South African scenery, accents, and locations could definately prove interesting, along with the frequent nudity and dated feel for anyone nostalgic about the crusty, grainy crime films of the late 1970's and early 1980's."
BORING with a capital "B"

"Terrible 1979 slasher flick starring Cameron Mitchell as an investigator (with ESP!) searching for a faceless murderer who is preying on young girls. There's lots of talking but very little action. If you can manage to stay awake until the end, at least you can watch the killer chase a naked blonde around. The plot is just like every other slasher film made during the late 70's/early 80's except that THE DEMON is memorable for one thing -- the killer wears a glove with blades on the fingers (years before Freddy Krueger made it chic!). The worst part of the movie watching experience is that the DVD is presented full-frame (not widescreen) and the print that was used to make the transfer was extremely dark. Watch John Carpenter's highly superior HALLOWEEN instead."
Can anything suck more than this?

"I've seen my fair share of bad movies. But this?! Oh God, the whole movie was just nauseating. The dialogue was weak and uninteresting. There was some silly nonsense about some girl missing and some guy was going to kill them or something. There was no cohesion in this poorly written mockery of a movie. Acting was dead. Were they even alive? So just about 99% of the movie was just talk and talking about something boring and unimortant. I kept trying to sit through this movie 3 times but I always grew restless. So finally, I decided to fast forward until something happens. All of a sudden you see the dork on the cover of the movie chasing some girl (the lead character??) then that's it! The chase ends prematurely with no violence. Just screaming and running. That's about it, and then the movie ended. I could not believe how bad it was. I have yet to see a movie more worthless than this. Even Legally Blonde is more intellectual than this. Hell, Lion King is more graphic than this too. Avoid this like the plague by all means. And buy some real good bad movies like Blood Freak, Dead Alive, The Beyond, or Story of Ricky."
VERY MEDIOCRE SLASHER MOVIE

"the demon has a few good moments, but not nearly enough to make it notable. The story (I think), deals with some kind of killer dispatched by evil/satan to murder women. The intro is awesome. the killer runs up to this house, then puts a strangulation bag on a mother then abducts the daughter. the father comes home just in time to save the mother, then runs out into the nearby woods an hollers "where are you, you bastard" (or something like that). the rest of the movie has cameron mitchell "a military psychic" on the case. all of the middle part of this movie is really boring, and the murky, dark transfer makes it impossible to see whats going on. The killer appears as a guy with a shadow over his face, in white makeup, and also in a white rubber mask (sometimes, all at the same time) which gives him a nice surrealistic quality, Luckily, I got this cheap on a slasher movie collection, and so should you."
