After not seeing this film in 20+ years, I finally tracked down a nice reg. 2 DVD and all I can say is it did not disappoint. There are a lot of detractors for this film and though it may not be the best of Barker's film adaptations, it's a very enjoyable monster on the loose flick. I like that they did not shy away from showing the creature even though the mask was ridiculously fake looking.
For anyone unfamiliar,…
This is one I remember admiring the VHS cover for as a wee lad at the rental store, but never got a chance to pick it up. Nearly 30 years later and I finally got to see it thanks to the German DVD release. It was a bit heavy on the talking parts, but it did have a couple of pretty cool gore scenes, particularly with the would-be rapist under the pier. I won't spoil, but for those who have seen Night of the Demon you'll know what to expect.
