Summary Review: Cheap
Another film that is something like an urban legend: being banned in countries like Germany or Norway and also very hard to find. The reputation of Night of the Demon is much more interesting than the movie itself!
The story is simple: a professor and some students travel to the dark forests to investigate some cruel murders which were caused by a Bigfoot-like monster that looks like Chewbacca from Star Wars . A feeble minded woman who lives in a lonely hut plays an important role in the solution of the mystery.
Well, the acting is bad, the F/X are pretty cheesy and only the many murders featured in this flick will keep you away from falling asleep! These deaths however are pretty are gory and violent, so fans of splatter movies won’t be disappointed!
Still cut in the UK: Intimate Stranger
Intimate Stranger is a 1991 US TV thriller by Alan Holzman.
With Deborah Harry, James Russo and Paige French. See IMDb

Summary Review: For Debbie Harry fans
A struggling bar singer takes a job as a phone-sex operator in order to make ends meet. One night she gets a call from a man who tricks her into listening while he murders a prostitute. Then he tells her that he’s going to kill her next.
The film is a must for Debbie fans. It’s a rare lead role for her and she gets the chance to play a warm and sympathetic character.
It’s just an average or maybe slightly above average cable slasher thriller. However Debbie is good in this and the scenes where she sings in the bar are worthwhile. Tim Thomerson is also notable for being quite disturbing.
