Rather than deepening the mystery and sense of intoxication, the picture soon becomes one prolonged and very bad hangover.

Demonlover is so in love with its visuals and cockeyed plot that it forgets to think about the implications.

Expect Demonlover to become a midnight-movie staple in the coming years. And expect shards of it to roil your dreams for weeks.
