The ever reliable Avery Guerra tipped me off that eccentric Z-grade filmmaker Ted V. Mikels (The Corpse Grinders, The Astro-Zombies, The Girl with Gold Boots) has a new fright flick coming down the pike called Demon Haunt.
Here’s the synopsis courtesy of Ted V. Mikels’ personal website.
“Evil entities have occupied a residence newly acquired by a lovely school teacher and her handicapped younger sister, to wreak havoc and terror, and bring bloodshed to any who may occupy the dwelling. Called upon to cleanse the home of the demonic entities is Raymond LeCleur, an expert in the use of ESP and the paranormal, who is extremely reluctant to come out of self-imposed retirement to aid the women, but feels compelled to battle the demons on their behalf. With the assistance of his estranged father, now a priest, Raymond battles fiercely for his own life in the cleansing.”
A trailer for Mikel’s latest low budget opus and though chock full of low rent computer animation, there’s just something admirable about its cheapness. It certainly looks more ambitious than a lot of the low budget junk that comes along these days. Give the trailer a look. If nothing else, watching the trailer for Demon Haunt will be the most gleefully cheesy two-minutes of your day.
Mikels’ website also reports a third installment of The Astro-Zombies is in the planning stages.
