Movie Info

Chang Cheh, who directed some of the Shaw Brothers Studio's finest martial arts flicks, spins this low-budget horror yarn. Best friends Joey and Gary cause a massive battle that takes the lives of their fathers. Joey manages to get away, only to fall into a big hole that leads to hell. There, the Black Prince makes him an offer: He will save Gary from eminent death at their hands if he will let the dreaded nine demons of the underworld inhabit his body, a pact to which Joey reluctantly agrees. Gary is saved and Joey returns to the real world with new freakish powers and a hunger for blood. Soon, their attackers are all dead, killed by horrifying flying skulls with sharp teeth. When the baddies eventually kill Gary, Joey gets really mad. ~ Jonathan Crow, Rovi

Audience Reviews for Nine Demons

Kill me and hurry up Joey and his best friend, Roland, are in the process of bringing down a group of ruthless outlaws when Roland is captured and Joey is thrown off a cliff. While Roland is being tortured Joey begins negotiating with the devil to save his best friend. Joey convinces the devil to take him up on his offer; however, he will need to feed the devil’s nine demons. Joey will return to Earth and begin a killing spree to feed the demons. “He’s your master and your friend.” Cheh Chang, director of Invincible One, Chinese Super Ninjas, 5 Deadly Venoms, Crippled Avengers, Ode to Gallantry, Killer Army, The Flag of Iron, Ten Tigers of Kwangtung, and The Magnificent Ruffians, delivers 9 Demons. The storyline for this martial arts picture is horrible and not worth your time. The acting is mediocre and the magic was ridiculous; however, the martial arts were solid. “I’m handsomer than all of your other customers.” This film is advertised as a Venoms flick; however, this film only contains three Venoms: Centipede (Feng Lu), Sheng Chiang (The young Venom from 5 Deadly Venoms), and Li Wang (Pang from Killer Army). Nevertheless, this did not feel like a Venoms film at all. The story was disappointing and there was more magic in this film than martial arts choreography. Even if you are the most dedicated Venom fan, I strongly recommend skipping this picture. “He’s going to kill us all.” Grade: D-
