demon

An actor moves into an apartment complex with intentions to commit suicide and as he tries to hang himself he sees visions of hell and glimpses of some of the building’s demonic residents. However before he can die he is saved by the apartment building’s rice chef and semi-retired vampire hunter, and soon he finds out that the building’s residents, both alive and dead, have other uses for him.

Richard Stanley’s 1992 film “Dust Devil” is another in a long line of films that fell into obscurity due to studio tampering and then resurfaced thanks to the spread of video technologies. While at first cut down to almost 40% of its original running time, Stanley reassembled what some call a “compromised” cut of the film that went out on a short run in theaters. The film then became available on DVD in a “Final Cut” version restoring much of the truncated plot points.
