THE IRREFUTABLE TRUTH ABOUT DEMONS
THE TRUTH ABOUT DEMONS
For a time, The Irrefutable Truth About Demons looks like it is going to come out all surface glitter and little substance the pursuing cultists never seem to do much more than hiss, snarl and stand around looking sinister, although cult leader Jonathan Hendry eventually gives a tight, nicely controlled performance in the latter half. However, Glenn Standring does create a number of effective shocks throughout the hero scuttling under floorboards as the pursuing cultists chainsaw through from above; a flash fantasy of the heros girlfriend drowning in the bath with a slit throat; the wonderfully icky moment where hero Karl Urban is held down, his mouth filled with cockroaches and then his heart removed from his chest. The full-scale demon effects are quite good and Standring prudently keeps them to the shadows and only briefly glimpsed to heighten their effectiveness. The Irrefutable Truth About Demons is a film that sits just between formula and effectiveness but Glenn Standrings direction pushes it over into the modestly worthwhile.
Glenn Standring next went onto make the conceptually ambitiously alternate world vampire film Perfect Creature (2006). Beyond that, he has acted as screenwriter/producer for Toa Fraser on The Dead Lands (2014) and 6 Days (2017), both non-genre.
