4.0 out of 5 stars irrefutably good, 5 Aug. 2009

This review is from: The Truth About Demons [DVD] [2007] (DVD)
Originally called the "The Irrefutable Truth about Demons", this horror film comes from New Zealand and stars Karl Urban (Lord of the Rings' Eomer and Doom (Extended Edition) [DVD] [2006]) as Harry Ballard.

Harry's brother Richard had believed he was being chased by demons before he died. Harry, an anthropologist, starts researching and debunking the various cults and their beliefs. Then Harry receives an anonymous video tape of a meeting of one of these cults. The leader, Le Valliant (Jonathon Hendry) is seen threatening Harry's life. Harry laughs it off, even after he receives a visit from a strange young woman called Bennie (Katie Wolfe) - that is until he is kidnapped and drugged by cult members who have an intimate knowledge of his brother's life and death.

Unfortunately, just before the kidnapping he was smoking pot, which the blood tests show, and no-one believes him. He is forced to team up with Bennie who seemingly has the knowledge to protect him from the cult which she once belonged to.

New Zealand know how to do creepy really well, and this is no exception. Enjoyable is probably the wrong word, I found the film engrossing.

It also left me with a number of questions, for example, why doesn't he show the video tape to the police? (it proves what he says), and where does he keep getting the clothes from? One minute he's only got a pair of trousers and a thin jacket, the next he's got a jumper, shirt and shoes.
