The Irrefutable Truth About Demons (2000) from Johnny Web (Uncle Scoopy; Greg Wroblewski)

This is a Kiwi horror film shot on location in Wellington. Although it had the potential to be just another bad low budget film, it is not.
If you took away the sound track and the very capable directing and performing, there is not much of a story. Typical grade-b stuff about a scientific researcher who is debunking the myth of those with demonic powers, only to find out that he has the greatest gifts of anyone!


Katie Wolfe is topless ever-so-briefly, and the major exposure is in a dissolve shot which obscured what little there was to see.
Silly plot notwithstanding, I think it's worth a look if you enjoy the genre. Spooky and tense cuts, real actors, a sense of high camp, and a very scary and tension-inducing background score make it a pretty good watch.

Only available from Blockbuster. This is the first full-featured Blockbuster exclusive, with a menu, two commentary tracks, and a trailer.

One warning: the DVD is poorly mastered. No better than VHS quality.

I rarely give the official web sites in my reviews, because they are usually terrible - ludicrous shockwave commercials with no content or info or pictures. This film is a happy exception. Anything you want to know about this film is available here.

The Critics Vote

The People Vote ...

  • With their votes ... IMDB summary: IMDb voters score it 6.7, but I doubt if it wil stay that high. (Only 10 votes have been cast)
My guideline: A means the movie is so good it will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not good enough to win you over if you hate the genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an open mind about this type of film. C means it will only appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if you love the genre. F means that the film is not only unappealing across-the-board, but technically inept as well.

Based on this description, this film is a solid C. Solid genre picture.
