Black Demons (2003) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Umberto Lenzi is a fine director. He made some excellent movies that
I would put high on the list of italian movies and grade b movies.
Some of them are even classics like ‘milano rovente” , “almost human”
“seven blood stained orchids” , and the “cynic , the rat and the fist”
his cannibal movies and even all cannibal movies are a acquired taste but his were among the best. But by the late 80’s he had fallen on hard times. This movie is not very good and it is slow paced but it’s not the worst movie ever made. I can barely recommend this one for lenzi fans and zombie completist fans. But I can’t understand why shriek show media blasters would do this movie before a great giallo classic like lenzi’s
“Eyeball” or his many crime movies from the seventies. THose were all great flicks. This one though can be added to the many bad zombie flicks out there. One thing in lenzi’s defense at this time he had a hard time getting any financing for movies and had to do what he could. But many good directors make subpar efforts and this is one of those. Just give lenzi a chance on some of his other movies. I enjoyed this movie because I like most bad horror movies , good ones are more fun though, but lenzi’s “nightmare city” is a good zombie movie , it shows a director
who can deliver and this movie showcases the fall of a good director. He needs to come out of retirement and make a solid giallo again or something. And shriek show needs to put out ‘eyeball” to make up for putting this out first.
