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…
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…
So that's where women keep their lipstick
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.
COUPLE OF SPOILERS
This October of horror is juddering to a climax mainly because I barely have time for the films right now, let alone the reviews. So this is going to be even less of a review than my usual junk. Just a few points of order though before I sort out some work bits before falling asleep in front of old wrestling:-
1) The opening titles here are absolutely awesome. I love that kind of thing, I wish more films put the effort in that they put in here.
2) The dialogue is lovely and juvenile. That's one of the things I love about 1980s horror, you get so…
night of the demons is one hell of a trip being stock in a house surrounded by demon poses people who wants to kill you dude if I get stock in a situation like that I get the hell out as fast as I can before I end up someone's bitch 4/5
Just a really solid funny bad 80s horror movie.
Though essentially just a rip-off of "Evil Dead" with gratuitous nudity, this manages to be a worthwhile effort for two important reasons: great practical effects and greatly broad 80s acting. Everybody absolutely commits, especially Linnea Quigley...and while her acting isn't exactly "good", she's never not an interesting presence on screen and always chews the scenery with gusto. Add to that Amelia Kinkade throwing herself into a hypnotically spastic possessed dance set to Bauhaus whilst wearing a black lace wedding dress...worth the price of admission alone.
And then you have Roger...dear, sweet Roger. One of the only horror film characters that when stuff starts to turn weird, he gets the FUCK OUT...when he's trapped in a house full of demons with no escape, he starts sobbing. Roger is me, is you, is every normal person in a horror film. And he's the best. Love you, Rog!
It's not good, but it's more than a good time.
To file this under 'campy '80s horror' would be a slight disservice. Sure the acting is straight from Power Rangers and the premise is B-movie horror 101, but it feels like the film was made with a bit of love and affection and is fully aware of its limitations. Makeup and effects aren't bad on what must have been a shoestring and there are some ok sequences with some attempt at directorial flourish. The film enjoys being what it is and is pretty fun as a result. Plus...

MUST WATCH for horror fans
Kind of an Evil Dead remake but with Linnea Quigley's boobs, very 80's and has some great effects.
A bizarre 80ies horror film that spins lots of tropes about "haunted house" films (sorry, make that obsessed house) and throws them into a rather pointless, yet weirdly entertaining pot-pourri of violence, jump scares, old school make up and boobies. The build-up of the film takes quite a long time and once the killing starts taking toll, it just a cat and mouse game that goes on for longer than it should. Dozens of crescendos just end up in the villains disappearing and the film never "confronts" the backstory of the possessed location for a possible finale ( a cleansing of the spirits etc. for example) but just rolls the credits as the survivors manage to roll out of harms way by sheer coincidence. All in all, it is a faintly amusing theme park ride, but all its scares and chills are superficial at best.
Worth it for the Bauhaus dance scene alone. Fun, dumb trash.
Dumb, regressive, clichéd, likable and a lot of fun.
