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.

Just stumbled across this flick in a cheap 3-disk horror collection, and was startled to find that I remembered the ending being one of the first scenes in a horror movie I'd ever seen (snuck in when mum was watching heh!)
Nostalgic qualities aside, The Demon was actually quite enjoyable. NO, you will not find FAST-PACED NON-STOP SLASHING AND BUCKETS OF BLOOD!!!!! (Haw!)...the one element I like most about effective 70's horror films is the RESTRAINT applied; music and lighting and ATMOSPHERE provide the chills, and the internal weakness of the protagonists' characters are made to be just as frightening (and aggravating!) as the killer himself. It can't be passed off as just another Halloween knock-off; white-faced killer aside, the story has little else borrowed from said horror classic. Yes, the print is murky, but you sad young ones who don't remember VHS have just been spoiled! Old films (grainy as they may be) have a certain charm that only TRUE horror fans and romantics can enjoy; they can frighten us decades after their own relevance because we can remember those days or have the imagination to put ourselves in that position, and don't rely on $2 Million dollars worth of SpFX to get a good jolt!

Wow, I have never disagreed more with the reviewers on this site. This

movie is excellent. Not in a so-bad-it's-good way; it's just flat-out

one of the best horror films ever. Though billed as a straight-up

slasher film, this one has a lot of things going on beneath the surface

that make it rise beyond the mediocrity of the late-70's-era slasher

genre. I believe this should actually be referred to as an

under-the-radar giallo gem rather than lump it in with your Freddy

Kreugers and Jason Vorhees and other slasher joke characters.

A lot of the problem people seem to have with this movie involves the

non-reveal of who the demon is. Well, I'm about to reveal to you all

the startling answer to this question: the demon is, in fact, the

DEMON. .. that's the whole point of the movie! That's who he is! He's

the demon! He's the personification of evil. Questioning his motivations

is silly; it's obvious what he wants to do -- he wants to kill people.

The movie never reveals why or where the demon came from, but does it

really matter? Let me just say that he came from Flint, Michigan and he

is killing people because Pee Wee Herman drank the last Faygo; does

that make the movie better for everyone? Anyway, what's interesting to

me about this movie is the mood it creates. The movie is very dark, but

it's never so dark you can't tell what's going on. It's not like the

whole movie is filmed in the woods with no light or something. The

darkness is important to the movie and that combined with the music

creates a mood that is rarely ever seen in horror films.

A little girl is kidnapped right out of her bed by a nameless, faceless maniac. Her mother is found (alive) bound, with a plastic bag over her head. Two months later, the girl's dad calls in a psychic army colonel (Cameron Mitchell) to investigate and do what police can't do in order to find his daughter and her abductor. The colonel gets visions of the madman and contorts his face a lot. Meanwhile, a beautiful pre-school teacher (Jennifer Holmes) keeps seeing an unknown stalker outside her classroom, and at the mall. Said stalker is, of course, THE DEMON, and has already killed a man who picked him up hitch-hiking. This guy's a real freakazoid, complete with black leather razor-blade tipped gloves (sound familiar?), rope, and plastic bags in his murder-kit. He attacks a girl in a dark alley, who's just left "Boobs Disco" (?!) only to be interrupted by two goofy bikers. THE DEMON clotheslines them both, leaving the girl to scream, and stand around gawking, before finally realizing she should run away. Another pair of honeys is standing outside of another disco, in another dark alley, being menaced by THE DEMON, when three blokes happen to wander out. The girls point at the weird guy, causing the three men to give chase. THE DEMON kills all three in quick fashion. Later, two boys are playing army in the woods. One falls on his back and sees the missing little girl's skeleton in a tall tree. Yep, THE DEMON is a bit disturbing. It all comes down to a final showdown at the young, pretty schoolteacher's house, where he pursues her and she spends most of the time topless. THE DEMON himself seems to have no face, wearing a mask to give him human features. He has super-human strength and desires only to kill. We get glimpses of him in his apartment, doing push-ups among a clutter of bikini-clad babe magazines. Not much to go on is it? I liked this one due to it's (somewhat interesting) supernatural element. Not bad...
