Jimmy (Adam Berasi) is a badass hitman for the syndicate, maybe the
meanest of them all, since he shows no mercy and even shoots innocent
passers-by should need arise or his own girlfriend (Angie Guido) when she
gets in his way. But Jimmy wants out, and suddenly he finds himself on the
run from two syndicate hitmen - whom he manages to dispose of though. To
avenge himself, he goes after the syndicate boss Little Joey (Bill
Wittman), takes out pretty much all of his bodyguards, then offs Joey with
a handgrenade. But Joey has sent two men over to kill Jimmy's wife
(Shannon Johnson), and when he finds his wife dead Jimmy is caught off
guard and the hitmen tie him up, point a gun at him and ... and all of a
sudden they are gone.
To lie low for a while, Jimmy heads for a shack in
the mountains ... where he meets the devil (Vic Badger), who wants to make
him one of his soldiers - and when Jimmy doesn't give in right away, the
devil sends him some demons and zombies to play with him. Somehow Jimmy
disposes of all hellspawn and thinks he has gotten out on top - but the
whole thing is far from over, since you see, in fact Jimmy was shot at his
appartment, and everything that happened afterwards was part of his
journey to hell. And his own personal hell is this shack in the woods,
surrounded by zombies and demons.
For the most part, Demon
Slaughter tries to come across as one big action shoot-out with a
intentionally slim story, done in a style a bit reminiscent of Robert
Rodriguez' best work - but unfortunately devoid of Rodriguez' panache or
irony ... and thus, most of Demon Slaughter is just a boring action
spectacle, not helped by less than charismatic actors who are not
necessarily really up to their roles.
The film's one saving grace is the
ending that puts everything that previously happened into a different
perspective and does give the story an ironic twist after all. That's not
enough to make Demon Slaughter a good movie, but at least it
makes it a better movie.
