Night of the Demons
Angela is having a party, Jason and Freddy are too scared to come. But You'll have a hell of a time.
While conducting a seance during a Halloween party, high-school seniors unlock the demon that remains locked in the crematorium.
It's Halloween and Angela is throwing one helluva party. Jack-o'-lantern. A pig-nose Stooge. The old fool. A real party. Hull fuckin' House. Bodacious boobs. A little Rocky Balboa. A PAC-MAN ass. Sour fuckin' balls. Yummy fudge! Coors beer. Count Dingleberry. Trippy-as-fuck strobe lights. Fuckin' batteries. Rodger is white as a ghost. A mirror. Extreme concentration. Fuckin' demons. A smart chicken shit. The French Kiss of Demonic Possession. A badass portable-audio-cassette-player. Angela's Flashdance moment. Acid fuckin' rock. Tongue kissing. Your first time fucking in a coffin. Lipstick tits. A cozy fire. Bye-bye eyes. Judy's Wonderland costume. Crouching tiger flying hand. Water pipes are the shit. Brave-as-fuck Sal. A long fall. An oven. Smart thinking. Your lucky lighter. The way Rodger runs.…

What makes Night of the Demons so much fun?
It never try to be more than a horror film, and by that I don't mean it goes by the numbers, for example you don't get a killer, ten teenagers and then watch how they all get killed in different ways. Night of the Demons took an hour to set-up the characters and the story and then unleashed the climax, but by no means the film feels slow, actually is very well pace and fun.
Another aspect from the film that stand out is the make-up effects, how much I…
So that's where women keep their lipstick
Movie #3 of Exhumed Films Mad Monster Marathon was quite possibly the most fun movie of the day.
Night of the Demons is a hell of a haunted house flick where a bunch of dummies end up in a "house possessed" for a Halloween party and shit goes sour reallllly quickly. The dialogue is ridiculous, the decisions they make are ridiculous, and the effects are pretty fucking cool (Linnea and the lipstick being one of the standouts and possibly one of the weirdest most unnecessary and out of left field bits of special effects I've seen in a while).
This rag tag group of kids are so crazy that I couldn't even pick a favorite. Everyone has their own moment…
Halloween Horror Marathon (#5)
Night of the Demons is another of those nostalgic movies I loved back in high school when the first wave of my 80's nostalgia attacked. One of my best friends never liked the schlocky cheese from the start and could never understand why the rest of us enjoyed it so much. Years later upon another rewatch, I better understand all the flak it gets, but my revisit still was a somewhat fun and entertaining one.
Basically a loose rip-off of the original Evil Dead, Night of the Demons takes place in some Anywhere, USA suburbia on Halloween night where a bunch of horny teens flock to an old creepy abandoned mortuary to do what most teens…
Viewed on DVD
Another one of those movies I can't believe I hadn't seen before.
The cover truly scared me as a kid, so maybe that's why I simply chose a different horror film to rent.
What made me really enjoy Night Of The Demons was Angela's dance to Bauhaus' Stigmata Martyr. The film gets considerably better from there.
LQ shoves a flashlight inside her boob and some other nonsense happens because demons can't cross running water.
Ten teenagers party at an abandoned funeral parlor on Halloween night. As to be expected demonic forces possess some of the teens and try to kill the rest. This is above the standard fair for an 80's horror films. It's has good special effect and makeup, especially considering it was produced in about 4 weeks for $1.2 million. It opened in Detroit and hit theaters in New York City at Thanksgiving and earned $3.109m staying in limited theaters until the end of the year, a rare feat for such a small horror film.
What is Night of the Demons? Is it a haunted house movie? Is it a slasher film? Is it a zombie/infection movie? Is it a comedy? Kevin S. Tenney tries to make his movie all of this and never pulls it off successfully. There's things that do work; the lighting in this film offers most of the mood (why don't more horror films use natural light?), the make up effects are fun, and Linnea Quigley delivers her lines with some great deadpan.
Great 80s horror fun with amazing atmosphere and set-ups, like the Bauhaus possession dance, and a clear riot grrrl vibe.
I LOVE NIGHT OF THE DEMONS SO MUCH!
It's really just such a fun horror movie and probably right up there, for me, with Halloween when it comes to holiday nostalgia. Every time I watch it I love Rodger even more. He's the hero in the end but so many times throughout the movie he's like "fuck you guys. I'm outta here."
I watched the Making of documentary on the Scream Factory release and it was super entertaining. Everything from how they did the effects to casting to finding their Hull House. It seems like the cast all genuinely had a ball making this and they are still close which warms my heart.
"EAT A BOWL OF FUCK!"
If you're a horror fan and you don't absolutely love this film, I don't think we could get along. So. God. Damn. Fun. And so 80s. Linnea Quigley at probably her hottest (I'd stand there like a goof and watch her bent over with a thong in that pink tutu too just like those store clerks). Fun, dumb 80s characters. A creepy house. Bauhaus death dancing. A ghetto blaster with a Fear sticker on it. Razorblade pie for the grumpy old fuck next door. I just love all of this so much.
It's interesting that Suzanne is actually the person who gets possessed first, not Angela. But it is clearly Angela who is running the show.
Okay, maybe interesting isn't the word.
These demon teenagers are spooky as hell!
