The Demons of Ludlow

Please choose a format above.

An intrepid reporter visits a quaint small town in the middle of nowhere. “I know where this is going,” you’re probably thinking. “When they get there, it turns out that things are exactly as they seem.” Not so fast!

For the first time in movie history, this nondescript anytown where everybody knows your name turns out to be harboring a secret dark history! Shocking stuff, we know!

Directed by the legendary Bill Rebane, The Demons of Ludlow foregoes giant spiders and creepy clowns for a more inanimate kind of killer. This time, the horror is unleashed when the town gets a… Hang on, let us just spin the “RiffTrax Wheel O’ Cursed Objects”… A new piano! And of course, the piano is evil and ghosts emerge for the first time in hundreds of years to dispatch town residents in a variety of hilariously gruesome ways. The colonial ghosts are a historically accurate mix of pirates, musketeers, and residents of Versailles. Rebane apparently took the bold step of going to the “Olde Timey” section of a costume shop and saying “I’ll take it.”

It’s a movie that’ll make you want to Hit That Booze again and again, so join Mike, Kevin, and Bill as they tickle the cursed ivories of The Demons of Ludlow!
