Demonoid: Messenger of Death (1981)

October Challenge Day 29:

My brother called me up and asked if he could come over and watch some movies tonight, "...maybe make it a double feature?" He asked.

I was all like, "Hell ya! And if you could bring over some gyros that would be awesome."

Matt brought over some gyros from Mr. Gyro and two movies from Scarecrow Video, We decided to start with Demonoid: Messenger of Death and see where we go from there.

Folks this movie is amazing.


In this film we have a demon hand (think an evil version of Thing, from the Addams family) that roams free and rips peoples faces off, crushes skulls, flies through the air, and takes over the body of whoever happens to run into it. This is kind of amazing.

The only way to get rid of the Evil Hand possession is if you cut off your own hand. Once this logic occurs to the possessed they begin to say really amazing things, such as "If you don't cut off my hand I'll shoot you." These possessed also start fights in a cosmetic surgery office (a most epic scene), a boxing ring, a church, and sometimes they blow things up.

This is a very odd movie with some jaw dropping moments, not because those moments are "good" but because they are so incredibly odd and shocking.

That said, there's not a whole lot that makes sense in this film - which adds to the Amazing! Anything Goes here (and it does).

This is absolutely a very fun film for a group of people on a fun happy night. It's good - in a very strange way - and it's bad - in an AMAZING way!

I had a lot of fun with this film and would recommend it to anyone looking for an outrageous 1980s horror show. Would also work well for Bad Movie Saturday Afternoon festivals.

Fun fun film. So insane this one.

We rented this movie from our local video store. Use the links under Find It. Watch It. on Horror Habit's side bar to locate where else you can find this AMAZING feature.
