3.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as some say March 19, 2012
Verified Purchase
This little gem has gotten quite the reputation since it's release. I saw this for the first time on a beaten up VHS last year, and when I heard Code Red had released it I was excited and had to have it. AFter ordering it and watching it I was as happy as i was the first time I saw it. The acting is horrible, the pacing is slow as frozen pancake syrup flowing uphill, the special effects are just like a low low LOW budget Fulci film (including lurid close ups)This low budget gem deserves to be on every schlock/shock/exploitation lover;s shelf.
There is a disclaimer at the start of the movie apologizing for the source they had to use, but truth be told it doesn't detract from the film in any way. When you are into these kind of movies you expect quality that can vary, and if anything it adds to the experience while watching it. If anything I think Code Red should be commended for getting this out to us.

5.0 out of 5 stars Campy but delivers 100% - Truly Uncut! April 13, 2012
Verified Purchase
I'm not the best at reviews but I did want to inform future customers of the Night of the Demon (Maria's "B" Movie Mayhem) version of this movie.

#1) It's campy. Don't expect Oscar nominated performances and lighting, etc. Think in the vein of Blood Feast (1963) but from 1980. Don't go in the Woods...Alone has some similiarities as well in production and setting value.

#2) Altomosphere. I did skip through some of the slower parts during the daytime where they liked to converse about whatever. But the night camping scenes are very reminiscent of The Burning. It's almost as if it was trying to jump onto the band wagon that Friday the 13th started. So that worked for me. Again, the production value is less polished than The Burning or Friday the 13th but it still keeps that feeling flowing.

#3) The story. It wasn't the best but it was enough to work. The cabin in the woods, where a young girl lives had me thinking of Evil Dead. Again, not the same but similar. Had that real campy, lost and forelorn feeling.

#4) Gore. The movie, if you purchase this copy Night of the Demon (Maria's "B" Movie Mayhem)(Not sure about any other versions), is entirely uncut and complete. I tested it against this website as I watched second by second. Go here: [...] to see for yourself what has already been tested and measured.

#5) Some movies are on the video nasty list and you wonder why. This is not one of those. This does have nice gore scenes. It's not flashy and over the top like alot of gore scenes we know of today BUT it still holds true to being too vile for mainstream. Most people would watch this and think, this is a depravity. Why am I watching this trash? But if you are a horror fan, if you like movies like Last house on Dead End Street or the other house on the left that Wes decided to go visit, then this is going to work for you. Trust me.

5.0 out of 5 stars Awesome Schlock Fest! December 13, 2012
By Hunter
Verified Purchase
I never knew of Night of the Demon till the one and only James Rolfe reviewed it for his annual Monster Madness. I've always been interested by Bigfoot, but let's face it: The majority of Bigfoot movies are pretty bad. Now, by technical standards, and just plain old good taste standards- This movie is awful. It is vile, graphically violent, mean spirited, and totally distasteful at times. But this is why I love it. Every other Sasquatch flick has the hairy humanoid skulking around the forests, or becoming the family pet, and movies where he has attacked have been pretty lame. Sure, there's flicks like Abominable, but they just don't hold up to Night of the Demon. The movie is even darkly humorous at times as well.

The premise is this: Professor Nugent (Can't help but feel this wasn't a coincidence) and his group of college students venture out into the forest to find Bigfoot. That's it really. In the end, they not only find Bigfoot, but a lot that they didn't bargain for as well. Now, I realize I made the movie out to sound horrible before. Most of the violence is quite cheesy by today's standards, and you'll most likely laugh at the sheer ridiculousness of some of the "kills". But this doesn't mean it's for all ages, this movie is definitely not for kids. The movie is also told in a series of flashbacks, and envelops the movie in a surreal, dreamlike feeling. Combine that with the pounding synthesizer score, and by the final sequence (Cabin scene), the movie turns quite bizarre, even moving into slow motion for a final, gory showdown. Also, the fact that every character wears flannel cracks me up. Seriously, nearly every character wears a flannel shirt for the whole movie. Feels like the movie should of been made with Stone Temple Pilots and Pearl Jam for the soundtrack in 1992!

5.0 out of 5 stars The only thing this bigfoot is missing is a hockey mask November 7, 2011
I've heard of this film for years, due to its notoriety as a video nasty and the fact that copies were not easy to find, and I had read about the most infamous scene involving a biker, so this film has always stayed with me as a title I'd like to eventually see.

Now, thanks to Code Red, I have seen this film and it has more than lived up to my expectations. Be careful with some reviews here and elsewhere, as they have spoilers, and believe me, the less you know about this film, the better, however, there are some spoilers towards the end if you want them...

The source is a 1 Inch master tape, not a film print, since none could be found, and the artwork is not of the original movie poster, since this film was so low budget it didn't have a poster (it probably played third bill at the drive in circuit anyway, and didn't need one). The image is full screen, but since the film was shot 16mm and blown up to 35mm, you are actually not losing any of the picture as with many full screen presentations, and the quality is decent.

The music is a minimalist moog score, and reminds me of the music in another film made around the same time called "Burial Ground", and the lack of a distinct theme (this isn't a Carpenter/Howarth score) lends to the surreal proceedings - believe me, this is an insane Bigfoot movie, and had me surprised at every turn.

Unlike other Bigfoot films made in the 70s, you do get a good look at the costume, and considering the low budget, it's not too bad.

I enjoyed this film so much that I've watched it twice so far, and will probably watch it a third time in the next week or so. I'd much rather watch a film like this than most multi-plex garbage littering movie screens across the country.
