Fire City: End of Days Review
Synopsis:Vine, a disillusioned demon, secretly lives with others of his kind in the world of humans sustained by their misery...
Fire City: End of Days (2015) is an American fantasy thriller horror movie that was funded by Kickstarter. Director Tom Woodruff Jr. flourished while executing his first full-length movie that excelled greatly and was beautifully shot in Los Angeles, California, USA. Viewers should watch the film past the first fifteen minutes which are confusing as can be and will lead you to turn the film off but if you stick to the film, then you will be rewarded with great sounds and remarkable makeup and demons. There were so many things that just did not make sense in the opening scene, and it does not matter if you understand it or not because it would not affect your movie experience.
The film revolves around demons and humans living together in the same world where demons are disguised as human beings and do everyday human norms. The demons live off of human’s emotions/miseries and are amused when the humans are troubled and are having bad times. Atum Vine (Tobias Jelinek - Hocus Pocus (1993), Batman & Robin (1997), The Golden Scallop (2013)) is a demon who began feeling emotions toward a human. Atum’s main job is to keep the balance between the humans and demons in an apartment complex that he lives. Atum deals drugs, saves humans from being killed/dead and does not feed off of humans miseries. Demon Cornelia (Danielle Chuchran - The Cat in the Hat (2003), SAGA: Curse of the Shadow (2013), Survivor (2014), Minor Details (2009)) is the Interpreter of Signs. Cornelia said that humans are becoming stronger and do not dwell on their misery much anymore which results in demons becoming weaker. Atum is given the task to find out why the humans are becoming stronger and why he feels the need to help a little girl.
Negative: A few impressive special effects that did not quite hold up as well as others including the CGI effects at the ending of the movie. Some of the scenes were obvious that it was not real and was just covered up with sheets, etc.
Pros: Excellent makeup effects, phenomenal demon makeup consistent acting with good performances.
I recommend all horror fans to watch Fire City: End of Days at least once to see the different spin on demons.
