Another exclusive from my Cinema Arcana FB Page! "There's something deadly in the air." Cross another title off your Blu-Ray Wish List -- Vinegar Syndrome are giving Charles Philip Moore's VHS holdout DEMON WIND (1990) its HD debut this October! Compelled by forces unknown following the suicide of his father, college kid Cory wrangles up his pals and heads to the middle of Nowhere USA in search of his grandparents’ ramshackle farmhouse – the site of their mysterious death sixty years prior. It isn’t long before our group finds out the cabin they sought is cursed—bending the rules of time, space and reality—and, as the sun sets, demonic possession becomes the order of the night. I mentioned the cabin, did I mention the ancient book? How about the mystical daggers? What about the convertible-cruising kung fu magicians, who say, “We’ll just have to go out there and kick some supernatural ass!”? Multiple flashbacks. Non-lucid dreams, sometimes of gas station nudity. Surprise booty shake. Surprise phantom kids. Surprise ghost boobs. A local bartender says, “We have beer, cake, water and goat’s milk.” One girl disappears, and no one seems to care. The macho alpha male has sorta-gay nightmares. Demon head kick. Demon dick kick. “Eat it, scumbags!” Yup, it’s that kind of movie. An ambitious and at-times eerie low-budget horror, thematically akin to previous ventures like EVIL DEAD (1981), NIGHT OF THE DEMONS (1988) and, uh, DEAD DUDES IN THE HOUSE (1989), DEMON WIND may not be some unheralded masterpiece, but it doesn’t have to be. It’s a fun little romp showcasing abundant atmosphere, effective make-up FX and inspired stunt work; practically perfect programming for your movie night routine with the right friends and right intoxicants. Fans have long been forced to make do with Prism Entertainment’s 1990 VHS or worse-quality import DVDs, but not anymore. Vinegar Syndrome have granted the film a full-on special edition, starting with a beautiful 2K restoration from its original 35mm camera negative, supplemented with a bevy of bonus features sure to part the horror masses with their hard-earned cash. Extras include on-camera interviews with executive producer Sandy Horowitz, actress Sherry Bendorf Leigh and cinematographer Thomas L. Callaway, an audio chat with editor Chris Roth, the original trailer, and reversible cover art. If that’s not enough, the company is also offering a limited edition lenticular slipcase, replicating DEMON WIND’s original tape release. This cover variant will only be available for purchase direct -- pre-order is slated to go live this Friday, August 25th. Street date is set for October 24th. "And now my pig, you die!"
