THE BLACK DEMON (Theatrical Release USA 2023)

Ben Meyers’ Rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì 

The Black Demon—works at the good to okay level, not with the wittiness of the Meg movie, but allows the actor Josh Lucas enough screen presence to well establish his acting ability. It’s easy to follow.

Buy a ticket
? Yes? No? Maybe? 

Yes. A suitable shark movie that earns its afternoon, one-watch status. It works and has a cliffhanger at the end of the film that asks for its sequel, but does not need a sequel. Although, if one is made with Ben Meyers' love of the movies, then, most likely, ‘buy that ticket’ will happen. The movie works slowly on an often-told theme with the usual family crisis and a danger lurking in the ocean theme.
