review by
Mike Haberfelner

When a demon attacks, Ingrid (Amanda Flowers) manages to get her 11 year old sister Sydney (Summer Greenberg) out of the house before facing the entity one on one - at the result of which their house explodes. Wandering the streets, Sydney soon runs into a bunch of thugs but is saved by private eye Alan (Alan Merrill), who soon realizes she's in a lot of danger, so he talks his TV news anchor ex Elizabeth (Lynn Lowry) into announcing her death on TV - but that doesn't fool our demon ...

Ingrid meanwhile has somehow come out of the explosion alive but has lost her memory. Fortunately, she's picked up by two sisters (Kansas and Parker Love Bowling) who get her a place with their foster mother Miss Skylace (Cherie Currie) - but of course, the demon's also after her, and eventually Ingrid and Sydney learn, separate from one another, that they are the last spirit risers, and the fate of the planet lies on their shoulders. But what are they to do, they're yet young and unexperienced and have nobody to give them guidance, while the demon seems to know everything.

Suffice to say, plenty of chaos ensues that also involves the statue of liberty - all set to the narration of fan favourite Michael Madsen.


Ok, above synopsis might make Spirit Riser sound like a cookie cutter horror film, and yes, the movie has some cheesy dialogue and overly clichéed plot elements. But then again, this is a Dylan Mars Greenberg film, and while the director sure knows her horror, nothing in this movie is like it's supposed to be, pretty much everything is exaggerated, often to downright craziness, there's a healthy disregard for realism, while not all special effects look especially polished, they fit right into Greenberg's insane world, and the further fetched plottwist are, the better they fit into this movie. Sure, Greenberg's films might not be for everyone, but if you like your horror with a good dose of both surrealism and leftfield horror, than this one's perfect for you!
