Movie Info

23-year old British filmmaker Elisar Cabrera directed this uninvolving erotic vampire film under the pseudonym "Elisar C. Kennedy." It stars Kerry Norton as Erica, who is plagued by dreams of the occult, ritual sacrifices, a red-haired woman, and strange memories from her childhood. These disturbances prompt Erica to visit a hypnotist (Daniel Jordan), who takes her back through regression therapy and makes a rather startling discovery: Erica was a vampire in a past life, and the red-haired woman, Selena (Redemption girl Eileen Daly), was her servant. The hypnotist wants some of the vampire's power, but she only exists while Erica is hypnotized, so he offers to help her completely take over Erica's body in exchange for vampiric powers. Cabrera later directed Witchcraft X).more

Demonsoul
Starring: Kerry Norton, Daniel Jordan, and Eileen Daly
Director: Elisar C. Kennedy


Erica (Norton) starts having recurring nightmares about a mystery woman (Daly) torturing a man while having sex with him. She seeks out Dr. Booker (Jordan) for some hypnotherapy. Booker happens to be an unscrupulous lecher and discredited paeranormal researcher, and while he is groping the hynotized Erica, he manages to fully awaken the dormant spirit of the vampire she was in a former life. Blood-drinking, death, and mysterious happenings clouded in fog-machine disgorgement follows.

"Demonsoul" started with a nice and interesting premise. It also starts fairly strong for a movie of this type--shot-on-video, with a budget of $3--but it quickly degrades into the too-long establishing shots, scenes of people wandering about, and weakly delivered bad dialogue that are the hallmarks of films like this. The film would also have been better served if a little more care and skill had been applied to the audio work. Consistent use of a foley artist would have been nice--fight scenes just aren't the same without the meaty thwacks--as would better microphone work; echoes and ambient noise come and go between different shots and in same scene.

Oh... and speaking of lechers... I think this is one of the few times I remember thinking, "Boy, she's an attractive actress... I hope she gets nekkid!", only to later wish that the actress in question had kept her shirt on.

All in all, I think there were some fine ideas behind this film, and I got the sense that everyone involved was giving it their all. Much of the acting (with Norton doing a particularly good job) and camera work is actually better than usually found in films at this level. But, as someone who has appeared in a couple of these sorts of productions, I can tell you that heart and love-of-filmmaking doesn't cancel out inexperience in amateur productions. Still, I felt that this was an honest attempt to make a real movie, so I'm giving it a full Tomato for effort.
