This Halloween, all eyes are on a small town in the mountains of
Colorado where normally nothing ever happens - because of a big music
festival. Too bad that a demon has chosen exactly this day and event to
return to earth, making literally his first appearance on the main stage,
spreading his blood on as many concert goers as possible, turning them
into demons in return.
Exactly on Halloween, Natalie (voiced by Katie
Maguire), Jeff (Andreas Peterson) and Kevin (Thomas Peterson), friends
from high school, have re-united after years rather by chance and design -
and suddenly find themselves on the run from demon hordes, hordes that
multiply by spreading their blood on others, including animals. Their
first idea is to make it to Jeff's crazy uncle who lives in the woods, is
armed to the teeth, and has built all sorts of defense mechanisms into his
cabin, and a spooky mine as his getaway route. But somehow all of this
fails to properly stop the demon invasion, and ultimately even Jeff's
uncle falls prey to the hellspawn. Fortunately for our three heroes, enter
Stuart Combe, demonologist, who tells them all of these newly created
demon will eventually form a giant super-demon, which is bad. But Stuart
has the rock to destroy this super-demon, which is good. But then Stuart
is killed right in front of our heroes' eyes - which is worse ...
going into Attack of the Demons, you better not expect an animation
extravaganza on par with classic Disney
animation as animation-wise, this film is more on par with the cut-out
style popularized by TV's South Park, if quite a bit more
advanced in movements and the like. But the style really befits the
movie's story, an intentionally slightly trashy demon invasion story with
enough hommages and asides to not be taken too seriously, but also enough
heart to make one care, populated by some fun characters and seasoned by
some pretty awesome monster designs, all bundled up in a really nice and
entertaining genre ride.
