Before this week, I pushed no “MUST SEE” Demon Wind agenda. As of three days ago, I hadn’t even indulged this not-often-discussed cult discovery. That’s until essential horror streaming resource Shudder added Charles Philip Moore’s 1990 “How did this get made?” case study to their already blushing catalog.
My interest was tickled with a confirmation tweet from the site’s official account, then fellow Twitter denizens started flooding their hyperbolic and dazed rants about a movie too tantalizingly terrible/insane to ignore. A film so divisive that its mere existence could part households, as confirmed by /Film’s own Jacob Hall:
40 minutes into DEMON WIND and my wife can’t stand it and I think it’s some kind of bizarro gem and I’m preparing for this to become one of our ongoing arguments.

The verdict was in. I had to watch this movie.
