A couple of men come face to face with a living hell when they are confronted with primeval and extra-terrestrial horrors. They meet a big-foot like creature and an alien, whose lethal venom induces an excruciating, never-ending nightmare of death. The special effects were created by the team responsible for 'Re-Animator' and 'A Nightmare on Elm Street IV'.

However, it's the last 30 minutes that makes this 80s trash worth sitting through. The climax will make fans of naff horror flicks squeal with delight...zombies, aliens, satanists and lashings of good old fashioned 80s splatter. What the demonwarp of the title is about is anyone's guess.
Don't ask what it all means, it's just perfect post pub viewing and the last reel will have you gasping in disbelief as everything but the kitchen sink turns up and ridiculous twists follow each other with gleeful abandon.
Fans of cheap, cheerful gore should snap up these cheap vids as it doesn't seem to be available anywhere on DVD.

He comes back intending to find and kill the ape but runs into a group of teens out thrill-seeking for Bigfoot, including the well-meaning hero and heroine. Suddenly, two gorgeous girls (one is Michelle Bauer) show up, strip and sunbathe topless. They too are attacked by the ape. Now pay attention. People start turning into zombies and heading for a giant cave in a mountainside. Here we learn that the apes are not really apes but humans who are controlled by aliens trying to get enough slave labor to fix their spacecraft; and as a very sexy perverse thrill, these aliens are stripping beautiful young women and doing Aztec-type cut-out-your-heart human sacrifices. Our heroine is very prettily being prepared for the next ritual, and the hero must find some way into the cave, past the weird slave/zombie/apes. and into the spacecraft to rescue her.
The film is strange and twisted and quite entertaining.
I did have some problems with the screen writing and action sequences, for example in one scene the old man has his rifle pointed at the monster with a very easy shot a 9 year old kid could make, but instead he drops it and goes for an ax to fight the beast. That part I was shouting at the screen it is so ridiculous, but for the most part I did not expect much coming from this movie but got a lot in return. The rational for the monsters or aliens are not explained too well, but I guess that isn't the point when one watches a morsel like this one.
Basic premise: Horny college age guys and girls go camping in the woods and sleep over this log cabin. An old man who is a native to the lost woodland turf warns them of danger. Then the horror fest of laughable absurdity begins in earnest.
After the first twenty minutes I had thought, well maybe it is okay but it is the same as every other 80's movie of that type, horny teens and other walking pieces of meat run into monster or slasher and get hacked up until one fights back to survive (at least live until the sequel). But this one did have a slightly different ending theme which surprised me a bit. Plenty of pretty girls featured in it too. In many ways this movie reminded me of those old Italian horror movies from many years back.
Obviously it features campy heavy violence and gore, so a few people shouldn't see it at a young age, but some kids & adults who are fans of the "Horror-Adventure-Sci Fi" genre from ages 10 and up might be able to enjoy this movie if they can see the horror imagery is a total messy phony joke with no baring on real violence at all.
Pretty decent 80's horror, action adventure, sci fi, comedy. I give this one a solid A-, the highest grade I ever give to a camp 80's horror movie because most of them I honestly have given an F to (such as Friday the 13th part 600) because they are so darn bad. Liked it so look out for the DVD.
