Shortly after he has detected an uncharted island, the ship of Captain Mike (Chrisz Meier) shipwrecks for no apparent reason, and Mike's girlfriend Maria (Katja Bienert) is pulled down to a wet grave right before his eyes. Against all odds, Maria survives, and she finds herself stranded on the island shortly thereafter.

Back on the mainland, three bankrobbers (Thomas Riehn, Marion Ley, Carsten Ruthman) do their job and rob a bank, then get away with a hostage (Anja Gebel) - and they find refuge on the uncharted island, where tensions soon break out.

Mike saves himself onto the island as well, and he's more than a bit surprised to find Maria here, and alive, too. To explain, Maria tells him she has been in hell (quite literally), then, while seducing him, she turns into a demon to prove her claim, and kills him - this way turning him into a flesh-eating zombie.

Our three bankrobbers and their hostage are soon attacked by the zombies, an attack that only the hostage survives despite being handcuffed. Then the army arrives for no apparent reason, taking out all the zombies. They find a human survivor too - Maria. When the hostage turns up as well, Maria tells them she's a zombie, and she's shot to pieces.

Once back on the mainland, Maria turns into a demon again, ready to repeat the whole story ...

 

With Dämonenbrut, a gore flick spiced with a few scenes of explicit sex, writer/director Andreas Bethmann proves two things at the same time: On one hand that he is not too bad a director, technically speaking, he knows how to set up shots (where to place the camera, where to put the lights, how to make the most of his locations and the like), how to pace his films, and the special effects (apart from a few notable exceptions, most prominently a plastic baby doll standing in for a real child). On the other hand though, he also shows what a poor writer he is: His film has no narrative buildup, some of the most pathetic dialogue ever, unlikeable characters throughout, no character development whatsoever, and worst of all, Bethmann doesn't even seem to try to produce a decent script, just a few pages of nothing as long as they are sleazy, violent, trashy and gory as hell, as if he wanted to pay hommage to Euro-sleaze of the 1970's and 80's, but without any real insight or self-conscious irony - and thus the film turns out to be little more than a bad carbon copy of the movies of old, made by someone who isn't interested in improving himself over his source material. That most of the film's actors (with a few exceptions like Katja Bienert) are not really up to their tasks, talentwise, doesn't help one bit either.

In all, you better give this one a miss.
