review by
Mike Haberfelner

Demetrius (Dakota Ray) is a psycho killer whose murders make him feel godlike and who has a thing for always showing his face to his victims the last thing before they die. He also usually live-streams his killings, upon which media dubs him the Live Stream Killer.

Clive (Fred Epstein) is a down-on-his-luck reporter who's desparate for good (in his case violent and sensationalistic) stories, and when nothing's out there he fabricates stories on his own, like killing a dog or burning a homeless person, just for the headline's sake.

Eventually, Demetrius asks Clive to interview him for added publicity, but insists that his answers won't be tampered with - which Clive agrees to, but later sees it as a good opportunity to load off his own murders onto someone else. For him, Demetrius is just one among many, and soon he has found himself another serial killer to feature, Baphomet (Sebastian Oake), but Demetrius isn't one to let such things slip quite as casually, and thus plans his revenge ...


The world of filmmaker Dakota Ray has always been a dark one, and The Dark Days of Demetrius is no expection, it being about three indivituals trying to outdo one another in vileness - and while the film may lack any relatable protagonist and might be too nihilistic for some, it does actually work as social commentary on the sensationalism of today's (social) media with the consequential corrosion of morals. And somehow the highly stylized, almost artificial look of the film that intentionally uses only certain sections of the colour scale and overexposure as parts of its cinematic language really helps to bring the point across.

That said, it's true what's true for all of Dakota Ray's movies, it's not for the squeamish, and it's made for maximal shock value, but if you're into this, you'll in all probability get enjoyment out of this.
