***May contain spoilers***
This is a story of one heretic demon hunter who was asked to help in stopping a serial killer with an army of living dead. Reno is about to take on the fight of his life, when his estranged wife, Katherine, comes to him and asks him not to take the case. The Demon Hunter must choose between the job that defines him and the woman he still loves. To further complicate matters, a group of college students are captured by the vengeful demon who has no plan on stopping her sadistic blood bath.
This movie has dead walkers and as expected the all too familiar make-up. There are incidences of possession with so fake scars. There’s blood and guts but not to scare but just to make it so to make the movie credible. Nothing scary nor shocking.
The Grave Review
This is one of the cheap movies that you can tell right from the beginning. Production sets are obviously made in a studio. The acting performance is so bad. Dialogues are just atrocious. Wound make-up looks like it was made with one of those old Creepy-Crawler machines.
There’s an exorcism scene where the possession victim’s wounds disappear immediately upon dismissal of the demon and it only took him 2 minutes to perform.
Then there was the most insipid soul ballad ever recorded, with every other line being the character’s name (“…Katherine…”).
The title of this movie should be “When will this movie be dead”?
Because of the above reasons, Grave Reviews give The Demonic Dead (2017) half a grave out of five graves.
