Editorial Reviews

Enter the terrifying world of a monster that leaves a grisly trail of victims in his wake. He is THE DEMON! A small community is unable to protect or defend itself from THE DEMON s rampage. Is he human or is he the violent manifestation of some dark force? The town seems doomed to destruction...or can someone stop this horrifying quest for blood? When the police fail to produce a suspect, a psychic (Cameron Mitchell) is called into the case and begins his quest to find the killer. But he s almost too late THE DEMON is now stalking a young and beautiful nursery school teacher (Jennifer Holmes) and he won t give up until he s scored his next victim. What you are about to see is one of the most chilling and spine-tingling, life-and-death struggles ever filmed. Look out for THE DEMON...the screams you hear may be your own!

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!

I don't understand why people think this movie is so bad. About the only complaint I have, is that it tends to jump around a lot, from one scene to another. For a low-budget Horror film, I find it decent.

This review is more to inform people that the VCI DVD release is sourced from a film print. The dark scenes aren't very dark here. A lot more detail is visible. All those public domain DVD releases must have been sourced from a VHS or Beta tape.

I had this film on Beta, and later VHS. I also have viewed this film on one of the public domain DVD releases. I think once on DVD through Dimaond, and another time years later on one of those 50 movie pack DVD sets.

The VCI DVD release of, "The Demon" is the best I have ever seen the film look. It is also in widescreen.

Whether you are looking to revisit the film, or view it for the first time, the VCI DVD release is the best way to view this movie.

Most people reviewing this movie panned it. Fair enough, the plot is clichéd, not much gore, kinda slow. But I liked the atmosphere, and the dialog, especially the Cameron Mitchell stuff, is good for sampling. "The time of the demon, our demon is close at hand" "she's high, high up, she's floating, floating."

And unlike others, I found that the filmmakers made good use of the South African location. All in all, a creepy atmospheric cheese ball of a movie, well written, well acted and well filmed on an almost nonexistent budget. I feel as if I now know how it feels to be a young south African school teacher being stalked by a shadowy creep in the late 70's.

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.
