Daemonium aka Daemonium: Underground Soldier(2015 )

This movie was made in Argentina and seems to be only be available on Netflix.  There is nothing on who did the sound track or who the company was that actually produced the film.  It has subtitles for those who don’t speak Spanish(like me), and I seem to have a thing going for subtitled movies. 🙂

I can tell you the Director is Pablo Pares.  Our lead ladies are Caro Angus who plays several parts including Rebecca/Azazel and Rocio Rodriguez Presedo who plays Lisa.  Our leading men are Dany Casco who plays Razorback, Walter Counas who plays Lucio Fulcanelli and Chucho Fernandez who plays Cortes/El Lobo.  Our main demon, Rufus the Ancient Demon(that is how he is listed no joke!) is played by Jofar Tarruella.  I can honestly say I have never heard of any of these people before but Rocio looks familiar.

So this story is set in a seriously messed up world where humans and demons exist together and not all in mutual harmony either.  Our leading man, Razorback, is to blame for all that when he is part of a group of idiots who force our wizard Fulcanelli to open the portal to hell so the leader of the group(unnamed in the above because he’s an idiot who doesn’t deserve mention) can make a deal with the summoned demon.  The result of this meeting is Fulcanelli runs for the hills and Razorback becomes a despot.

Enter Lisa the poor abandoned wife of Razorback who, at the start of her part of the story, has just found out she’d preggers.  Yay Lisa, but not so much since she ends up getting kidnapped by a religious group opposed to Razorback and his demon minions. They manage to get Lisa on their side, and the story progresses.

I won’t tell you much more than that except ole Rufus does his best impression of Skeletor and then, he and Rebecca/Azazel get down to some serious Kung Fu fighting against each other.  It was weird and yet amusing at the same time.

Now the beginning isn’t all that great – I had flashbacks of Japanese anime come to life – but it got a bit better after that.

If I didn’t know better I would’ve said this movie was Japanese because of the fighting – lots of martial arts mixed in with gunplay and other mayhem.  Costumes were a mix with lots of anime and Steampunk influence.  Wasn’t a great deal of music because there was always a lot of action going on.  There is some blood and gore, but it’s not that disgusting.

In short, in my humble opinion, don’t expect much out of this movie and don’t take it too seriously.  It’s amusing, dark, violent and simply mindless fun to watch.  There is foul language, some weird nudity, lots of violence and other stuff so I don’t suggest allowing impressionable children to watch.

Thus ends my movie review, I hope you enjoyed it and might, if you feel bored, take a gander at the movie.

See you on the flipside and don’t forget your towel and sonic screwdriver!
