Demons of Ludlow
Directed by Bill Rebane
A cursed piano unleashes vengeful ghosts on a 200-year-old colonial village, in this horror curio from shlock maestro Ben Rebane (THE GIANT SPIDER INVASION). After the piano appears during a celebration, evil ghouls begin picking off the townsfolk, whose ancestors did something vile to the piano’s owner. Though Rebane’s incapable of writing non-laugh-inducing dialogue, (“It’s 1983! Things like this just don’t happen!”) a disturbing dinner party scene shows he can definitely deliver eerie horror on a budget. Watch it back to back with HAUSU for the perfect evil-piano double feature.

I don't know why I love this movie, maybe it reminds me of the small town where I grew up, I know there's plenty it shares in common. I also like the scene where the girl wakes up to ghosts eating at her dinner table. I also liked the reporter characters... That's all I can really say.
There's some gore, and the scarier moments are pretty good. The rest of it isn't so great. Tech is bad quality, as is the acting.
Great to catch up with this one that I missed during the eighties. I think the bad quality tape and bad lighting actually do it some favours. A good laugh.
As weird as I remember it. Not bad but not great.
This was fun to watch, although not exactly good. If you're into B-grade horror and 80's shlock, this is for you.
