Reviews [click links to read more]:

“Attack of the Demons will coast a bit on what is truly a great visual medium, but the script and story fall flat to me. Any life given to the characters and the story come from Power’s living collages, not through the dialogue and whatever mythology is being cultivated.” Sachin Hingoo, Biff Bam Pop!

Attack of the Demons is merely a fantastic but trying affair. One whose creativity is held back by truly lackluster dialogue. For those on the fence, it’s still worth a watch. There something for horror fans of all kinds and all ages to find. Even with one glaring misstep, Eric Power has created something really special and really fun.” Boom Howdy

“The unique and masterfully executed animation is worth the price of admission alone, but the thoughtful homage to classic monster movies and the frequent comedic injections make this a fun, albeit rough around the edges, spook show.” Adam Patterson, Film Pulse

“The transformations resemble those from Lamberto Bava’s Demons, only animated with construction paper. And the result is pretty cool looking. Indeed a lot of the animated gore, and there’s lots of it, is quite inventively done.” Jim Morazzini, Voices from the Balcony
