PictureThe non-anamorphic 2.35-1 widescreen image would actually seem quite reasonable... for an older movie. But Demoniac Flash is a fairly recent affair and as such should definitely not be suffering from quite as much print damage as seen here. Anamorphic issues aside, picture quality is reasonable - colours are bright and the image suffers fairly little noise. Edge enhancement is apparent, but never overly so. Nevertheless, as it would appear that Demoniac Flash has been made this year the condition and style of the transfer lends itself to thoughts of “cheapness”. Having watched the movie this doesn't surprise me!
SoundWell, at least there's a Chinese 448Kbps Dolby Digital 5.1 track available and it does its job reasonably well, with a few nice deep, sub-woofery moments available. There really is little to become excited about though, and despite the clear violinic (sic) references to Psycho, Demoniac Flash's audio abilities are eminently average. The best I can say is that this is an improvement over the stereo tracks included and despite slipcase suggestions to the contrary, this is the only 5.1 track included on the DVD.
ExtrasThankfully, there are none to endure.
VerdictA dull and uninspired “horror” movie and a lifeless DVD release Demoniac Flash left me with a strange craving to watch Catwoman and King Arthur all over again...
Not my cup of tea then, but it wouldn't surprise me if there were a few people out there who regard this a bit of a cult movie. Oh no, I feel a nightmarish premonition coming on!
