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…
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…
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…
Not an awful lot to say about this film really. I expected it to be classic cheesy 80's horror fare - and that's exactly what it was! A fun film to watch and probably one of the better examples of it's genre with some decent effects for it's day. Let down a little by one of the most irritating heroines ever to grace the screen.
This is one of the best 80s horror flicks. Great premise, great setting, hilarious characters (Sal!), and really creepy demons and their one liners. This make up is up there with The Exorcist for me in the scary department.
Some of the shots are so much better than you'd expect from an 80s horror movie too. The scene when the mirror breaks and Angela's dance scene specifically.
The quintessential '80s Halloween movie. It's got costumes, animated opening credits, a goofy sense of humor and a legitimately unsettling surreal feeling to the whole thing.
Kevin S Tenneys cheesy horrormovie is mostly just silly. But it's the right kind of gory silly with a nice soundtrack and a great location. They don't make em like this anymore.
I watched Part 2 before i watched this and was surprised by how much I liked the sequel. Although I liked this, I found the build up to be much too slow with very little action until more than half way through the film. Nevertheless, this was a fun and enjoyable comedic horror film.
Above-average '80s splatter that features carefully-crafted cinematography and creative kills. Not good enough to escape the "lovable camp" genre -- definitely great for a group watch. Greatest use of a tube of lipstick in cinema history.
For a by-the-numbers horror movie it was actually a lot of fun. A bit of a Return of the Living Dead 2 vibe.
Cinema Horrorama #23
So this movie starts out pretty much perfectly. It's got hilariously bad one-liners but in a good/clever way, every character is an 80's trope staple, there's a gratuitous nude scene, and the music and attitude is pitch perfect. Before you know it our characters are all gathered together in the living room of a haunted house and it seems like the hard work is over. Honestly, the movie should be able to coast to victory at this point.
But alas, it's all for naught as this is precisely the moment where the movie takes a nose dive and crashes... HARD. And it's not hard to identify where it goes wrong. Suddenly the one-liners have lost…
... É um filme engraçado, repleto de non sense e com um ambiente típico dos filmes de terror dos anos 80. Mas de vez em quando chateia um pouco. Não é equilibrado e tem demasiados momentos chungas e os demónios abusam das piadas, acabando por tornar-se irritante pelos piores motivos. ...

WATCHED AS PART OF MY UNSEEN '80s PROJECT
When I decided to watch this today, the 31st of October, I didn't realize that the film is set at Halloween. A nice coincidence.
A bunch of annoying a-holes have a Halloween party at an abandoned house/funeral home. They awake a demon and start dying in a variety of violent ways. Which is quite satisfying. It's not an amazingly directed film or anything but it does have an impressive shot of all the actors reflected at shards of a broken mirror as they look down at it. Things start to run out of steam in the third act but it has its moments.
Plus, any movie that has the line 'Eat a bowl of fuck!' in it is ok by me. A highlight of the few good lines among some poor dialogue.
A really fun and ridiculous Halloween "horror" that intentionally or not, provides some great laughs, head scratching moments and all around silliness. Thats not to say there weren't a few creepy elements here and there, but overall this was a cheese fest start to finish, complete with every character cliche you can think of, hilariously jilted dialogue and the most ridiculous 'demon voice' I have ever heard.
