A demon-possession film, to say the least, Mike Mendez’s Don’t Kill It looks to bring something new to the circuit. This is not shocking, as Mendez surprises us with hit films time and time again. Mendez is known for Tales of Halloween, The Gravedancers, Lavalantula. One of my personal favorite film from Mendez is Big Ass Spider!
Mendez tends to venture into the bizarre, which is what his films are considered as. Of course, this is a good thing, and I expect the same with this new film.
Dolph Lundgren; the name speaks for itself. This cinema icon has starred in countless memorable films. Lundgren’s filmography includes The Expendables and Universal Soldier. He is also in the Arrow television series. No doubt he is an exciting addition to the cast.
Kristina Klebe starred in some noteworthy films. This is particularly true with Rob Zombie’s Halloween, Dementia, and Proxy. She also stars in Criminal Minds.
Don’t Kill It looks to take the demon-possession concept to the next level. The film blends high-packed action and brief hints of comedy. The practical and special effects look stunning and steer away with over the top CGI effects.
