"The best demons since Hellraiser! Fangoria

Cast & Crew
Horror View 9 of 10
The film features a huge variety of influences from its horror film predecessors. Davis attended Seminary but didn't finish (as Elias Koteas' character in The Prophecy), the fight for business over a rampant murderer (Jaws), and the theme music is even what I'd call "bad John Carpenter". In the end, it's a cleansing movie, nicely wrapping up both of the subsequent happenings into one conclusion...Michael Berryman (The Hills Have Eyes) illuminates in his brief role...This movie has everybody in it. Buzzi (Laugh In!), Kane Hodder (Friday the 13th series), Christopher Knight (The Brady Bunch) and Martin Kove (The Karate Kid) are among the notable names. WWE Diva-turned-actress Christie Hemme lives it up in the role of Lust. (thank you!) Kevin McCarthy (UHF, The Howling) steers the entire film with his brief performance...Here's the knock, if I have to find one, on Fallen Angels. If Davis provides his insight early on, to both Hendricks and the viewers, that the forces at work are the seven deadly sins, it opens up a whole new ground. Just as Agent Hendricks is forced to determine whether or not the demons are real, the viewers are forced into the same dilemma. Instead, this information isn't laid out until half of the fallen angels have made their appearances.
Evil Dread 8 of 10
Fallen Angels starts with a really hot chick in bed awaken by a strange sound followed by an even stranger snake demon slithering up her sheet then into her goodie bag, which was pretty damn cool to watch and pretty twisted...Personally I think this movie is pretty damn cool. The cast alone puts chills up my spine. Where else can you see Michael Dorn out of his Lt. Worf Makeup and Bill Moseley playing the good guy? Mix it up with Kane Hodder, Michael Berryman, Reggie Bannister, R.A. Mihailoff, David Hess, the veteran Keven McCarthy and Christopher Knight, AKA Peter Friggin BRADY, all in one movie? The story is pretty solid although it's pretty slow at times and the ending could have been better, but the demons are cool and the kills are great; decapitation, eye gouging and one great scene where one of the demons cuts up a guy's face...This movie is an all around great watch so look for it when it comes to DVD...Fallen Angels is a great watch for horror fans, especially because the cast includes some of the greatest actors from some of the greatest 80's horror films. Definitely worth watching, although I would have changed the ending around a little.
