Film Review: Don’t Kill It by Roberta J. Downing

Horror / Supernatural (billed as action/comedy/fantasy)
Released March 3, 2017
Directed by: Mike Mendez
Produced by: Michael Thomas Slifkin
Starring: Dolph Lundgren, Kristina Klebe and Elissa Dowling
Plot: A Mississippi town is plagued by a demon that jumps into the body of the person who kills its host and a demon hunter is hot on the trail. The demon hunter is given no choice by the FBI agent, who subsequently comes from a long line of Nephilim, to allow her to help to destroy this body swapping demon.
Jebediah Woodly (Dolph Lundgren) goes to a backwater Mississippi town after several news outlets confirm multiple homicides. Dressed like a cowboy wearing numerous religious symbols and a cowboy hat and armed with a gun loaded with rubber bullets and a nifty looking net gun. He shows up at the sheriff’s office to inquire about the murders and is met with disbelief and resistance by Kristina Klebe (Agent Evelyn Pierce).
After a few more murders have taken place, Jebediah convinces the chief (Tony Bentley) to hold a town meeting where the demon just happens to come in, lock the doors and begin another murder spree.
I do love a good hack and slash movie and most of the special effects were okay, I do have to say that there were a few that looked less than believable and were sloppily done.
I liked the fact that the “demon” did not discriminate between race, color, gender or age! Nothing is scarier than an old lady sporting black demon eyes going on a killing rampage.
Now, I know that horror movies, especially those that are slasher / killing spree movies people tend to be a bit…shall I say a bit dense however in this case, it seems no one listens and they are all should be singing “I am stuck on stupid!”
I really felt like there could have been more before the movie ended and perhaps this might be the cliff hanger leading up to a sequel
Thanks to the veteran acting of Dolph Lundgren and Kristian Klebe, this movie wasn’t a total loss. I’d have to rate this 4 out of 5. -Roberta J. Downing
