Tribeca Films’ THE DEMON’S ROOK, A Love Letter To Italian Horror; Trailer Gory As Hell


Today’s entries into the zombie subgenre typically fall into the repetitive slow-walking/fast-running categories, very rarely offering much else. Back in the day, films like Fulci’s ZOMBI, THE GATES OF HELL and/or Bava’s DEMONS stood out because they offered something fresh and exciting, something that today’s undead efforts often lack. Enter James Sizemore’s film THE DEMON’S ROOK, which judging from the trailer, looks like one hell of a throwback to those exciting Italian Zombie films from the late ’70s/early ’80s. Everything from over the top gore, beautiful red and green Giallo-like lighting, and some very impressive practical effects work, all done independently.

Tribeca Films is set to release THE DEMON’S ROOK to On Demand platforms beginning September 30th, and well, fright fanatics…don’t miss out on this one.

Chaos descends upon a quiet town when Roscoe, the pupil of a wizard monk from an ancient race of demons, unknowingly opens a portal that allows an unspeakable evil to travel freely into our world. When three grisly beasts cross into our dimension, the living are possessed and the dead rise to destroy everything in their path. Armed with demons’ magic, Roscoe is the only fighting chance to put an end to their eternal path of destruction. An ode to the DIY creature-feature classics of the 1980’s, THE DEMON’S ROOK is a “gut-flinging monster mash” (Dread Central) that you won’t soon forget.
