My Demon Lover is a quirky romantic comedy-horror film from 1987, written and directed by Charlie Loventhal. The movie tells the story of Kaz (played by Scott Valentine), a streetwise young man who's also a small-time hustler. He's homeless, but he's not ashamed of it. In fact, he's quite content with his life, which consists of sleeping in alleys, conning people out of their money, and hanging out with his best friend, his dog Benny.

One night, while running from the police, Kaz stumbles upon a mysterious woman named Denny (played by Michele Little) who's hiding from her abusive boyfriend. Despite her initial hesitance, Denny warms up to Kaz and the two become fast friends. However, things take a strange turn when Kaz discovers that he's slowly turning into a demon. Throughout the movie, Kaz struggles with his condition while trying to win Denny's heart.

The film has a unique mix of comedy, romance, and horror. While there are certainly some creepy and unsettling moments, the majority of the film is lighthearted and comedic. There's a certain charm to Kaz's character, and Scott Valentine does an excellent job portraying him. Kaz is a charismatic and funny guy who's impossible not to like. Michele Little is also great as Denny, the attractive yet vulnerable woman who becomes Kaz's love interest.

Robert Trebor also appears in the film as Kaz's nemesis, a sleazy conman named Vinnie. Trebor is excellent in the role, providing some of the movie's biggest laughs. He's a perfect foil to Kaz's character, and their interactions are some of the movie's highlights.

One of the most impressive aspects of the film is its special effects. While they may not hold up to today's standards, the demon transformation scenes are quite impressive for a low-budget film from the 80s. The makeup and practical effects are well-done, and they add an extra level of creepiness to the film.

Overall, My Demon Lover is a fun and entertaining film. It's not going to win any awards, but it's a great example of a cheesy 80s horror-comedy. The film has a great cast, some impressive special effects, and a unique storyline. If you're a fan of movies like Fright Night or The Lost Boys, then you'll definitely enjoy My Demon Lover.

My Demon Lover is a 1987 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 27 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 4.6.
