Audience Reviews for Demons of Ludlow
This is another film from the Mill Creek 50 movie pack of Chilling Classics. Directed by Bill Rebane, who never directed anything big, but did do some spectacular cult films like 1975 Rana: The Legend of Shadow Lake, The Giant Spider Invasion, Blood Harvest, and The Alpha Incident (Which I have to watch later this week.. Just to name a few. The film is of poor video quality, and the obscurity of this film means that very few people will ever get to see it and judge it fairly. Its about the Ludlow family donating a demon possessed piano to the town of Ludlow for revenge of something that happen 200 years ago. Having come out in 1983 it had some pretty good but cheap special effects, the glowing hand, the possessed tree, and the last scene with the bouncing piano almost ruined it all. Still if your into bad films, or weird films or micro budget regional horror films are your thing then this odd little item is worth a look. And for the price you can pick up Mill Creek Collections on Amazon for its well worth it. Still I have to judge as I seen it and that's 2 1/2 stars.More
For a low budget 80s horror this wasn't all that bad. The music was brilliant (I love the Tubular Bells style electronic sound), and the plot itself was actually reasonably inventive. However, most of the budget seemed to have been spent on pyrotechnics for the finale, leaving the effects rather lacklustre and often rather silly. It doesn't help that the camera picture didn't age very well; it looks a bit like someone shot it on a home video camera. Honestly, Hollywood should stop reworking horror films that had nothing wrong with them in the first place, and try their hand at improving some like this instead. As long as they avoid some of the pointless female nudity the original director seemed to think was necessary.More
