Demon Wind (1990)

Holy crap. This is like striking gold. Demon Wind is the kind of horror movie that gives immense pleasure from all the ways it both succeeds and fails without actually trying.

The premise is fairly basic: a group of college age friends must fight demons to stay alive in a remote cabin-like setting. It draws heavily from the likes of Evil Dead and Night of the Living Dead.

It’s clearly a terrible movie with awful dialogue and forgettable characters, but call me crazy, it works on some level. The creature FX are over-the-top, but fun. There is a strangeness to some of the scenes and character interactions that ends up being rather amusing due to the unexpectedness.

I think the only way this could have been better is if the whole thing was about demon farts.
