Critic Reviews for That Demon Within (Mo Jing)

All Critics (14) | Top Critics (8)

Pulp done with passion can be its own reward, as the veteran Hong Kong filmmaker Dante Lam shows with his feverish cop thriller "That Demon Within."

[The] Stephen King-like angle is the richest material in "That Demon Within," which is otherwise another tale of gangsters turning against one another.

This Hong Kong import can't resist the urge to dumb down a fascinating premise for the sake of mass consumption.

There's a half-realized, half-haunting Hitchcockian psychodrama buried somewhere within "That Demon Within." What's on the surface plays more like Wong and Lam simply forgot to take their meds.

When "That Demon Within" finally burns down, all that's left is char and ash.

April 17, 2014 | Rating: 2.5/4 | Full Review…

That Demon Within often feels like a berserk plot-vending machine.
