demon windSometimes I treat my films like I treat heavy metal records. I simply sometimes choose a film to watch based on the movie poster or DVD cover and that is what I have done with some albums and that is what I did with today’s film. Today’s film Demon Wind is another film that I picked up courtesy of Vinegar Syndrome at the previous weekend’s Rock and Shock Convention. Cory (Eric Larson) has never really known where he was from or who his dad really was. After a weird chance meeting with his father, he decides to go back to the family land where his grandparents once lived. Along with his friends, Cory will discover and unlock the truth behind what happened so many years ago to his family and the land they lived on. The film also stars Francine Lapensée (Hollywood’s New Blood) as Elaine, Rufus Norris (Broken) as Harcourt, Jack Vogel (Presumed Guilty) as Stacy, Stephen Quadros (Cradle 2 The Grave) as Chuck, Mark David Fritsche (Somewhere In Time) as Jack, Sherry Leigh (Sid and Nancy) as Bonnie, Bobby Johnston (Loveblind) as Dell, Lynn Clark (My Fellow Americans) as Terri, Richard Gabai (The Wasp Woman) as Willy, Mia M. Ruiz (Witchcraft II: The Temptress) as Reena, and the film was directed by Charles Philip Moore (Angel Of Destruction). 

demon wind 2'I actually really liked this film, but I did have some issues with it in general and one of them was the corny dialogue. I loved the story and what the film was about, but there were just too many instances of awkward dialogue. It was either that the writer didn’t know how people communicate or the cast just made the dialogue real cheesy. They had this big jock who every time his girlfriend said something, he made sure to tell people that that was the reason that he kept her around. I wanted to go through the screen to tell the guy that no one gave a sh**. Now some of the things I liked is the way the townspeople looked or the friends looked when they were bitten or possessed by the demons that plagued the land. They acted like zombies, but they had the sense of humor that reminded me of The Evil Dead. Some of the kills were cheesy, but overall some of them actually were pretty cool. The one issue I had was what the hell does Cory turn in to when he battles the head demon at the end? He looked like an alien from Alien Nation with the ears of a demon. That part just made no sense to me because he wasn’t possessed at all by the demons. I thought overall that it was actually a pretty fun film to watch, I definitely enjoyed it. That is why I am going to give it a grade somewhere between an C+ and a B-. It’s somewhere in that grade range.
