Horror movies are by far my favorite, so I've decided to make a list with all of them I remember…
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.…
"Eat a bowl of fuck! I am here to party!
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…
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.
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…
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.
Rubbish but fun.
Bit naff but a kind of shit i can deal with.
Great makeup and body effects can't drag this undeserved "Classic-status" horror out of the pits of its own living hell.
A Halloween party thrown by kooky Goth gal Angela (Mimi Kinkcade) goes South fast when a malevolent demon possesses the souls of the unfortunate guests.
Night of the Demons is an often mentioned entry of the 80's horror genre. It has an iconic place due to its combination of wild makeup and prosthetics, liberal gore and punk rock music, a recipe that also scored big with horror fans in the Return of the Living Dead series.
None of this, however saves the film from being terminally dull.
Even at 90 minutes, the movie takes an age to get started, wasting…
Teenagers throw a Halloween party in an old cobwebbed abandoned mortuary. Two things are certain: a) most of them die horribly and b) Linnea Quigley gets naked. In this one, the place is haunted by demons who possess the kids one-by-one and turn them into lumpy-faced killer mutants. Director Kevin Tenney ups his game here from his previous film, Witchboard. This is goofier and gorier and has more nudity. Highlights: eye gouging close-up, Linnea's prosthetic demon breast, demon-possessed goth girl stripper dance, the great closing joke and, of course, Linnea Quigley stealing the whole film just ten minutes in by merely bending over in a short tutu. As with her famous naked dance scene in Return of the Living Dead, old VHS rental copies often look a little more worn and fuzzy during that moment.
This titles isnt even the right one. It says from 1988, but trailer has it from 2007... wow
"Bodacious boobies, sis!"
That line of dialogue, and maybe Angela's crazy gothic dance scene, is the only thing I really liked about Night of the Demons. Otherwise, a forgettable horror trifle.
Now here's a classic if there ever was one. Back in the early 90s I used to work in a videostore that specialized in horror. Uncut glorious import horror from all over the world, because anything horror released officially, if at all, here in Sweden had been through the snippy happy scissors of the censors. One of the best perks of working all my free time and weekends in that basement store was taking tapes home and just chilling out to genre film marathons. One weekend I took home an Australian exrental of this film - Coscarelli's Phantasm too that same weekend - and fell in love with it completely.
It's a pretty simple story, weird outsider girl Amanda is…
I liked this movie a lot, I think it stands out from other trashy 80's horror movies, even though I found it has some "similarities" with Sam Raimi's Evil Dead (but maybe it's impossible to make a horror movie without coming up against stereotypes and cliches of the genre), but I thought it was very original and creative.
