This movie was amazing, i still feel high.
Good job making an entertaining romp.

Apparently the Rite of Serepis (sp?) is an ancient ritual for body switching. Well, nice to know, but yeah this was one for the books.

After some tribal humming drums, the first phase begins and milky liquid gets poured. That's only the beginning though, if you want a visual assault on your eyeballs then come no further than this film, which had enough body rubbing and general strangeness to get you through a week. I loved it.

How does one go about reviewing a film like 'DAEMON'?

This film opens with a few lines of text about an ancient religious ritual used to envoke the daemon of astral body projection, it continues by stating that in recent times these texts have been revived and attempts have been made to perform the ritual...

I have to say, I was caught completely off guard by this one. I'm not familiar with the 'body switch' genre, but if there anything like this, I've really been missing out on something here. At times this film had me in hysterics and the next I'm covering your eyes or biting my nails or both!

The woman next to me put if perfectly, "It felt like something that I shouldn't be watching, but I didn't want to look away".

This heat had a lot of really visually striking films and this was no exception, some really impressive visual work here, I feel as though certain scenes have been tattooed in my subconscious.

It was thought that Crane Style's 2008 legendary flick "The Legend of Levin" could not be topped, but they've only gone and done just that. If you like squirming, being baffled, feeling cinematicly violated or just enjoy a few lolz, you'll like this.

This film was: so demented, so intense, so funny, so gross, so weird :S

Very clever how they took this genre and came out with something both original and thrilling. Bizarre 9.10

Words fail me. I think if it had a Norwegian black metal soundtrack i would have been forced to bump it's rating up to a 5!

This movie made me sick

This movie made me sick and I wanted it to end and it kept going

They achieved what they set out to do - which was make a super 8 style 70's exploitation film. Everyone in the cinema felt violated, great stuff.

4

I feel violated

10

Absolutely Thrilling. The fact that people felt so violated can only be a good thing. This one really shook to the core and questioned how much people could handle. The imagery was electrifying.

10

This film was disgustingly brilliant, there were moments that really took it to the next level. Well done team Crane Style!

10

What is 'The Legend of Levin'??? Does anyone have any copies of this? Is it as weird as Daemon???

10

Legendary in every sense. A top contender for Incredibly Strange!...blew my socks off...a must see cinematic event!

3

Not a bad concept, but executed along the lines of Blair Witch or something equally jerky. Distorted and twisted imagery and they did manage to convey some bizarre spouting of fluid in a forest. Effective in being disturbing.

Crane Style must have a big following based on the ratings in these reviews. Honestly it was the laughing stock of heat 3 and the subject of much ridicule. Started off like it was going to have substance but ended up being just bizarre

Wow gnarley stuff guys!

An audio visual experience that haunted me while i was driving home. Only one of a couple that i could remember from this heat.

This wasn't the prettiest looking film but accurately captured the dark energy and feel of a " body switch " if one was to ever take place. In my opinion this was a standout film from this heat.

Suf.

Crane style can you please upload daemon to youtube!!!

10

Compared to the majority of forgetable films that screened in heat 3, this was one that stuck with you. The trippiest film of the night, the soundtrack was fucken sweet too! Had a real underground feel to it, trippy shit!

10

Trippiest film of the night. Real sweet visuals and sound production. Top Notch, Freaky Shit guys!

Hilarious! Very Blair Witch. Um, yep.

Something I hope I never see again. You couldn't tell what was going on and it will be remembered but for all the wrong reasons.

hahahaha this was funny as fuck, I agree with some of the other comments, it's hard to forget this one, not too sure many people 'got it', not there was much to 'get', I guess some people like safe disposable films and others enjoy something a bit more daring. 22 fucking reviews, that says something. I can't say this film was boring, not in the slightest, I walked away feeling like I wanted to cover myself in white dust and have milk poured down my crack!!! Fuck yea!!! Bring on DAEMON II YOU DEMENTED FUCKS!!!

10

hahahaha this one was pretty fucken twisted, funny shit you weird cunts!

1

Er... What the fuck?

And that's all I can think of to say...

10

I FUCKING HATED THIS PIECE OF FUCKING SHITTTTTT.!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! THE MAKERS OF THIS FUCKING PIECE OF TRASH SHOULD BE FUCKING BURNED!!!!!!!!! FUCKING DISGUSTING. YOU FUCKING SICK FUCKS!!!!!!!!!!!! I HAD MY FUCKEN 8 YEAR OLD SON AT THE FUCKING SCREENING AND HE WAS SCARED OUT OF HIS FUCKEN MIND YOU FUCKEN WEIRDOS RUBBING EACH OTHER WITH SHIT!!!!!!!!!!!!! IF I EVER FUCKEN SEE THIS FILM AGAIN!!! ILL FUCKEN...

10

ANYONE WHO GAVE THIS FILM A RATING OVER 1 STAR IS A SICK DEMENTED FUCK. YOU ALL FUCKING DISGUST ME. THIS FILM SHOULD BE BURNED. YOU CANT EVEN CALL THIS FILM A FILM. IT WAS BLATENT PORNOGRAPHY OF SOME NATURE, USED TO CORRUPT MINDS. POWERFUL IS THE WORK OF THE FALLEN ANGEL, LUCIFER HIMSELF. I PRAYED ALL THROUGH THIS FUCKING SHIT FEST OF A FILM. BURN. BURN. BURN.

While effective in being disturbing, this film lacked structure and the story was definitley to hard to follow.
I'm not entirely sure what actually happened and I do not wish to think about it any more. Good effort. oh yea, were do you get your drugs from??

With an audience, this was a visceral experience. I wonder if it would carry the same weight on TV, or on YouTube though. The reason I have my doubts is that the team lensed this effort in a claustrophobic way. They only pulled back from the action for effect, and the darkened room did the rest of the work for them. Nothing wrong with making a film that plays well in a movie theatre though, right?

I can't for the life of me remember the compulsory elements being included, but I'm sure they were. As far as being a 'body switch' film goes, it was cleverly about the transition process, instead of the usual lightweight fluff that genre is saddled with. They did well to thoroughly confound, appal and shock the audience!

10

i can't wait for this epic cinematic tour-de-force to be unleashed to the public!!

@ Prometeur

Uhhh... I wonder if this film would carry the same weight on t.v or youtube?

Huh?

Who makes a film for youtube?

TV?

It's the same argument as movies and iphones, it dilutes the whole experience, the presence of the film of is lost, I'm sure most true and original artists would agree that they go making a film with thecinema in mind.

It's time to disconnect, get offline, get off youtube, bring back the public cinemas!!!

Bring back the Peoples Cinema!!!

Death to Roxy!!!

Death to Industry!!!

Long Live the New Flesh!!!

5 STARS FOR 'SICKENING & VIOLATING' PEOPLE.

What was so sickening? Viloating I wonder?

Overall I found this film tame and a tad too boring.
