David Decoteau on

Demonoid

Released 1981
Distributor American Panorama

Or to be completely accurate, Demonoid, Messenger of Death (aka Macabro)! This trailer was prepared by the New World Pictures crew, but for whatever reason the picture ended up going out through another distributor. It’s director Alfredo Zacharias’s somewhat less impoverished follow up to The Bees, his earlier US-Mexican co-production for New World. This one’s another possessed-crawling-hand-in-need-of-an-exorcism movie, with the always appealing Samantha Eggar running around lamenting how quickly she went from William Wyler to Alfredo Zacharias. NSFW!
