I actually enjoyed this movie and was rather entertained by it. I think the best part is the visual effects also the kind of annoyance of trying to get out of a place that keeps pushing you back.
Demon Wind is the story of Cory (Eric Larson) and his eight (!!) friends who accompany him on his quest to discover his family history after the suicide of his estranged father. Against the warnings of the know-it-all wise man, the group ventures out to the old abandoned farm where Satan worshiping, demons, and murder ran rampant. Naturally, the group becomes trapped on the farm, unable to leave the area, and are picked off one by one as they attempt to battle all of the undead demons/zombie hybrids that come after them until an epic battle between Cory and Satan ensues, with plenty of campy 90's gore effects and unintentional comedy abound. The movie has its up and downs. It takes 45 minutes to get to the first death within the group (which was actually awesome and creepy. Hell, that same person manages to have 2 awesome deaths actually), but then the characters become a bit annoying (thanks to the writing and direction from Charles Philip Moore) as they completely forget about the first person dying and show no emotions for it until others start dying. Yeah, it's a bit trivial, but that lack of continuity really bothered me for some reason. As for the rest of the deaths, most of them are average, but a couple manage to be actually cool and unique. The story does tend to get a bit silly, but this small Evil Dead clone managed to entertain me. This is no surprise though as I do love these kinds of corny films. Just wish it hadn't taken 45 minutes to get to the good stuff. Overall, though, not bad.
