Demon Queen (1986/Massacre Video DVD)/In The House Of Flies (2012/MVD DVD)

Demon Queen

Picture: B- Sound: B- Extras: C Film: C-

Demon Queen is a fun release from Massacre Video, and tells the story of what else but a vicious blood sucking Demon Queen who is hell bent on damnation and terror. Featuring some cool special effects and a place in cult history, this critically panned little cult indie is worth a watch if you are looking for a quick laugh, but nothing more.

The mysterious and lecherous Lucinda (Mary Fanaro) is the cold as ice, soul-devouring evil embodiment of the Demon Queen! She's a sinister and murderous Succubus wildly rampaging on an unholy quest of lust and terror. Lucinda loves brutally killing her victims, but she reserves the most horrendous horrors for her forlorn lovers!

Jesse (Dennis Stewart) tries to thwart Lucinda's orgy of blood lust, but Lucinda has summoned her most horrific and unspeakable powers especially for his demise! Fear the Demon Queen, she WILL kill you!

Presented in standard definition with a 16 X 9 anamorphic widescreen and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, nothing crazy notable to say about the presentation here.

In The House Of Flies

Picture: B Sound: B Extras: D Film: C+

In The House of Flies, a zany independent film effort that was better than I expected it to be. Directed by Gabriel Carrer and Philip Carrer, the film has strong production design, well written script, and a cast of pretty interesting characters. The film stars Lindsay Smith, Henry Rollins, Tate Yap, and Ryan Kotack.

June 1988...Summer Was Never The Same. In the House of Flies tells the story of young lovers whose lives are inadvertently changed forever. An innocent couple, Heather (Lindsay Smith) and Steve (Ryan Kotack) suddenly find themselves abducted. By whom? For what purpose? Alone, isolated and locked in an undisclosed, suburban basement, Heather and Steve find themselves pawns in a psychological, mind-game with their diabolical hosts.

Surrounded by several mysterious and locked suitcases - each containing valuable clues to their very own survival - Heather and Steve must exploit what remains of their bruised intellect and depleting sanity, to escape the authority of their unidentified and brutal abductors (Henry Rollins, Ryan Barrett). From this day forward, summer was never the same.

Presented in standard definition with a 16 X 9 widescreen aspect ratio and a lossy Dolby Digital 5.1 track, nothing too notable about the presentation here or the lack of extras, but I would suggest giving House of Flies a spin if you like family dramas or crazy cult movies.
