“Demon Wind” is a bonkers combination of “Evil Dead,” “House,” “Evil Dead II,” and “Night of the Demons” but with none of the wit, or creativity. So much of “Demon Wind” makes no sense that you’ll spend more time trying to figure out the list of inexplicable scenes and plot twists more than actually sit down and experience what’s unfolding. When it’s nonsensical it’s shockingly convoluted, referring a lot of junk about main character Cory’s grandmother having a book of spells, fighting off a cult of Satanic worshippers, giving Cory some kind of magical power, and never once indicating that Cory should have stayed away from the house.
"John Wick: Chapter 2." Keanu Reeves performed about 95 percent of the fight scenes himself. To prepare for the role, Keanu trained for three months. His training consisted of Judo, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, marksmanship, and driving.
"Only Lovers Left Alive." All of the cast members playing vampires wore wigs that were a mix of human, yak, and goat hair, in order to make them look wilder.
There’s also a lot of goofy moments like the appearance of ghostly quaker children, a gas station diner that serves goat milk on its menu, a naked dream sequence, a victim of the demon zombies being turned in to a baby doll and then exploding, and the introduction of a character involving him karate kicking a beer can in to someone’s face. “Demon Wind” is an endless series of gaffs and baffling narrative points, that writer Charles Phillip Moore just seemed to cobble together anything and everything about monsters and demons that came to mind. If that’s not enough the cast’s performances vary from cardboard to comical, which isn’t too surprising considering the more the narrative develops, the more incoherent everything becomes.
There Will Be Blood Disrupted Shooting for No Country for Old Men. The two instant-classic pseudo-westerns of 2007 filmed in the same area of Marfa, Texas, around the same time, which created issues when a pyrotechnical test for There Will Be Blood created a huge smoke cloud that got into the shot for No Country For Old Men. Joel and Ethan Coen had to wait for it to dissipate before they could get back to shooting.
For a movie with such a lush setting, “Demon Wind” could at least be a bare bones atmospheric chiller, but it fails to strike even the slightest spook, even botching attempts at jump scares. “Demon Wind” is so awful it’s watchable, and it’s one of those monstrosities from the nineties that have to be seen to be believed. Even then you descend in to denial that you ever bore witness to it.
