Resident Demon (2005) Horror Movie Review
Horror movies Review
Years ago, some witch lived in an apartment. She killed 20 guys, drained their blood and then bathed in it. Her sister was supposed to do something to complete the ritual and grant her immortality (or something), but she took off before the ceremony was over and the witch died. So now some new people move into the apartment. They have some friends over for a housewarming party, but of course the spirit of the witch comes back and takes over their bodies. It jumps from body to body, so there’s a ton of time spent trying to figure out who it’s in. this is used for some marginally interesting scenes where it turns out that the spirit wasn’t in the body you thought it was.
Overall, this is just zero budget junk. I’ve seen worse, but this is awfully bad. Acting is adequate (and that’s being extremely charitable), however the characters are so sedate that it’s very difficult to keep from nodding off. The whole film is very grainy. There’s not a hint of atmosphere, you certainly don’t care bout any of these characters, and the plot moves along at a glacial pace. There’s very little theme music, and when you do actually get some, it might just be a single note held for an entire minute. The movie is dreadfully boring. It finally picks up a bit at the end, but that’s certainly not to suggest that it gets exciting - just slightly less boring. You get to see a couple of girls in their bras, and they’re quite nice to look at. That’s about all this thing has to offer.
I imagine that the artwork on the box probably cost as much as the whole movie.
