“This doesn’t come across all that well, but it’s made even worse by the special effects scenes which may come across as funnier than intended. Unfortunately, Demons at Dawn may not be what anybody really wanted, but you may be ok if you understand how the budget and inexperience of the cast may have affected the production.” Battle Royale with Cheese

Demons at Dawn has a great title and a storyline to tickle the most ardent genre fan. What it doesn’t have is much in the way of common sense […] The acting, direction and script are uneven and the lead character is a bit of a plank […] I really wanted to like it, I really did, but it’s so messy, so badly put together that it’s not even so bad as to be good.” My Bloody Reviews

“I can forgive bad effects – especially when there are other gore effects in the film that are pretty good. What I can’t forgive is a film that actually has zero story beyond the simple plot of “man goes to a location, gets attacked by Satanists.” That is all there is to Demons at Dawn, there’s no substance to proceedings at all, no real motivation for our protagonist or the villain he faces. The bad guys are bad guys, that’s it, and the fact they turn into demons is actually of little consequence!” Nerdly

” …starts out like your typical (well-told) gangster flick and only gradually enters horror territory, but without ever loosening in tension of make the genre shift in the least feel forced. And a suspense-heavy directorial effort sure helps here, as it keeps things tight even when things turn a little ridiculous – ridiculous in comparison to the down-to-earth beginning, of course.” Search My Trash

“This is really a misfire on every level. The acting ranges from barely acceptable to downright embarrassing […] Given the dialogue they’re asked to deliver, I suppose I should give them credit for saying it with a straight face. Don’t let my suffering be in vain, heed my warning and avoid Demons at Dawn at all costs.” 1/5, Voices from the Balcony
