Horrorfest 2021 Presents: Demonia (1990, Lucio Fulci)


Sadly by the 1990s it seems that the horror master Lucio Fulci had lost his touch, as evidenced by Demomia, which I was hoping would be a cool evil demon nun movie. Alas, it was a bad TV movie style flick where nothing interesting happens until the middle of the movie. Considering the rest of the movies I’ve seen from him are definitely not boring, this is disappointing. Plus this flick tries to be a slasher movie midway through instead of sticking with the killer demon ghost nun bit. Weak.

Even worse is that after years of good or at least decent leading ladies in his movies, Meg Register is really bad. I mean on a level that’s bad even for horror movie acting. She drains any energy this flick had in every scene she is in. I’m really bummed this movie wasn’t good, and I got that sad feeling when one sees a movie from a director they like that stinks. I’m glad I saw this for free on Tubi because if I paid to see this in theaters, I would have been really angry. As it stands it didn’t get a theatrical release, which is a good thing.
