These two ‘Nineties horror flicks back-to-back the other night made for a cracking evening of grisly, gruesome entertainment that I’ll remember fondly for some time to come.
DEMON HOUSE was given to me as a Halloween pressie and EVIL NEVER SLEEPS came on a six-film box-set called HARDCORE GORE, also containing the following films: THE FEAR, AXE, PIECES, THE POSSESSED and THE SLAUGHTER. All nice family-friendly viewing, obviously…!
DEMON HOUSE is a brilliantly funny romp set on Halloween Night itself. A group of horny teens seek refuge in the town’s haunted house, an abandoned funeral home called Hull House, while on the run from the law after a shoot-out in a liquor store. Typical stupid horny teens…!
They don’t realise, of course, that the house’s sole sexy occupant, a hot brunette called Angela, is actually an evil demon who’s only too happy to swell the ranks of her Un-dead followers with the unwitting horny teens. ‘Demonizing’ the dopey horny teens is as easy as shooting fish in a barrel. Seriously, they are so dumb. And so f***ing horny…!
There are some hilarious scenes in this film. Watch the cheerleader and her best friend getting all nekkid together in the beginning, comparing diddy sizes in the mirror in the nip and everything. It’s so obvious that the film was directed by a guy, because that’s one of the classic things that guys think women do when they get together. I wouldn’t have been at all surprised to see a nudie pillow fight break out as well or a shared bathing scene, haha.
Check out sexy Angela ‘sucking a golf ball through ten feet of hose’ in front of the group’s designated dweeb, that’s pure class. And the group’s tough guy thinks he’s so tough, but he’s so not. His girlfriend, the gobby girl who’s the image of the singer Pink, is a walking slut who needs to be taught how to keep her knickers on and her legs together. Maybe being turned into a demon for all eternity will teach her to be a bit more ladylike, haha.
This film is just such great sexy cheesy hammy fun, you know? It perfectly embodies the true spirit of Halloween, it has a grand little soundtrack and the demonic special effects are actually excellent, especially when you consider that the film is a good two decades old. There’s a cop in it too who’s just a few hours away from retirement. Don’tcha just know that this one case is gonna be the one that breaks the camel’s back…?
EVIL NEVER SLEEPS is a really enjoyable sexy horror-thriller starring Heather BOOGIE NIGHTS Graham. She really uses her stunning looks to good effect as the beautiful Olive, a young woman who cheated on her husband and who then had the dubious pleasure of watching her jealousy-crazed hubby shoot first himself and then the lover right in front of her big wide peepers.
I wonder why he didn’t shoot her too while he was at it? Maybe he thought that surviving her precious lover would be more of a torment to her than a nice easy bullet through her temporal lobe, haha…
Anyway, the gorgeous Olive moves into a new apartment and tries to get her life back on track after the wee murder-suicide, but a black-clad intruder breaks into her flat more than once and gives her a bloody good going-over. A revenge beating, perhaps? But who’d be seeking this revenge? Her dead husband’s brother, maybe? He’d have plenty of reasons to want to mess up Olive’s pretty face after what happened to his brother.
The cops are called, anyway, or at least one cop in particular, the sturdily attractive Detective Conrad who starts to smell something a little bit fishy about the man that’s supposedly stalking and attacking poor little Olive.
Poor little Olive, by the way, is something of a nymphomaniac and she has lesbian sex with her best friend, a real looker called Pearl. There are also two hilarious scenes of male-to-female oral sex in the film, one of which is particularly funny as it looks as if Heather Graham is squatting down to do a Number Two over a chap’s face, heh-heh-heh.
I watched this film with a mate and, I don’t know what this says about her sex life but when those male-to-female scenes came on, she actually started shrieking: ‘What the f**k are they doing? Seriously, what the f**k are they doing…?’ Snigger.
This film is pretty violent and there’s a great little twist at the end which I enjoyed. Both these films, in fact, would make for enjoyable viewing for anyone who digs a nice bit of retro horror.
There are titties galore in DEMON HOUSE and you already know about the (ahem!) muff-munching in EVIL NEVER SLEEPS. There’s a great little catty quip in DEMON HOUSE about male-to-female oral sex as well, by the way. See if you can spot it…!
