NIGHT OF THE DEMON (1980 U.S.) D: JAMES C. WASSON W: MIKE WILLIAMS W/P: JIM L. BALL
Some students head into the woods to discover more about a local Bigfoot legend, and whether it has any basis in fact. It's not much of a horror film, but does have some fun carnage and a certain atmosphere that prevents me from completely dismissing it. A biker's dick is ripped off, someone's swung around in their sleeping bag and impaled on a tree, a couple of (overage) girl scouts are carved up and a woman has her intestines ripped out of her stomach. The monster's not bad either, and there are some surprises. A cack-handed attempt at something interesting that i'm sure influenced later films a bit more than you might imagine. It was an official "video nasty" in the U.K.
