Demon Wind is not exactly a great independent horror film or anything and the performances are, at best, so-so, but it is an enjoyable enough flick with some moderately impressive make-up effects.

PLOT SYNOPSIS


The strange and brutal deaths of Cory’s (ERIC LARSON) grandparents have haunted him for years. Determined to discover the truth, he has returned to the desolate region where they lived, along with a group of friends, to try and uncover the mystery. Ignoring warnings from the locals that the area is cursed, Cory and his friends soon realize that the legend is true, as the Demon Wind possesses and destroys them, one by one, turning them into monsters from hell.

 

SPECIAL FEATURES – 3.0/5


Although my copy did not come with one, this does come with a lenticular slip cover. The interior cover is reversible.

Features include interviews with Producer Sandy Horowitz (26:27; HD), Actress Sherry Leigh (16:31; HD), Cinematographer Thomas Callaway (19:57; HD) and Editor Christopher Roth (20:17; HD), this one audio only. Each participant recalls their time working on this independent horror film as well as chatting about their careers, and for the most, they are engaging.

The release also has the Theatrical Trailer (2:09; HD) and a Still Gallery (3:52; HD).

 


VIDEO – 4.25/5, AUDIO – 3.25/5


Demon Wind debuts on Blu-ray through Vinegar Syndrome from a newly scanned and restored 1080p high-definition transfer culled from the original 35mm camera negative in 2K. The titles from VS have always been a bit hit or miss which makes sense considering the source material, but here I was actually impressed. Detail was generally sharp throughout aided by some the film grain and skin tones had a natural appearance. The only drawback is there were the occasional dirt and dust marks but nothing overly abundant nor distracting.

The disc is accompanied by an adequate DTS-HD Master Audio 5.1 track which, save for some ambient noises encompassing the surrounds, more sounds mono in spots and there was a good amount of hissing in the background; but dialogue levels was clear so for a 1990 indie horror project, it’s not too bad of a lossless track.

OVERALL – 3.5/5


Overall, Demon Wind is not exactly a great independent horror film or anything and the performances are, at best, so-so, but it is an enjoyable enough flick with some moderately impressive make-up effects. This Blu-ray released by Vinegar Syndrome offers up great video and alright audio transfers while the features, albeit limited, worthy of watching.
