    Ok, I've been meaning to ask this for a real long time but somehow it just didn't happen.

    Saw bits and pieces of this film when I was pretty young so I'll do my best to describe what I recall.

    Basically a demon was resurrected and comes back in the form of a beautiful woman. There's people who do her bidding for her.
    There's something to do with a full moon and her turning into a hideous creature.
    I also remember that at the end the male hero kisses this beast on the lips and it drools from its mouth.

    This ones stuck with me because as a kid it seemed so interesting, bizarre and to me frightening. I've seen heaps of horror films since then and haven't managed to find out what the film was called. Hope you guys can help me out :)

    Maybe. I'd have to see the that film to know for sure though and I can't find it anywhere.

    Not totally convinced that's it either.

    Nope seen that as well and like it.

    I think the moon bit in it was to do with an eclipse.

    It has to be Night Angel. Was the demon a model ? this has to be the film. It's a cool little gem from the early nineties.

    I'm not sure. Does anyone know where to download it seeing as it has no official DVD release?

    The VHS is available for dirt cheap, even new copies.

    Sounds like maybe Camilo Vila's THE UNHOLY (1988)?

    Lionsgate released it in one of those recent multipacks with SLAUGHTER HIGH, CHOPPING MALL, WAXWORK and more:

    As for NIGHT ANGEL, the best version is the MGM remaster that's been playing cable for the last few years. It looks a lot better than the old VHS tapes, and features more gore (if memory serves).

    Saw Night Angel online and that isn't it. Neither is The Unholy which I've seen.

    I recall the film having better production values than Night Angel. Also, the lunar eclipse was a main plot point of this story and had to do with the demons powers.
    When she beckons the man for a kiss she is in demon form and is calmly standing, drooling in front of him as he leans in closer.

    I was thinking it might be Necromancer also. Funny, I watched that last year but don't recall one fucking thing about it. Guess it was just that good.:D

    Darkside does have that sloppy kiss before dying which sounds like what was mentioned.

    I don't recall Morella turning into any form of demon. I also watched that last year, but it did mostly stick with me. There may have been something about the moon though, hard to keep all the movies straight when you've seen so many.

    Thanks I'll try and track those down and give them a watch. I'll start with Necromancer. I know it's not the Unnamable because I've seen that one. I'm doubting it's Tales because I saw that a long while back. Truthfully I can't remember if I saw it all though.
    As in "how is that possible"? :lol:

    I thought it was ok. Slow at times but the nudity kept me interested enough. Also the scene were guy stumbles into her hell was really cool. The ending was totally laughable though.
    Maybe. I'll have to try and find it :)

    Maybe it's POSSESSION (1981).

    If that's the one with Sam Neil then no, that's not it.

    I know of the movie, it used to play on Showtime Beyond alot when the channel first came out, but the title escapes me.
