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…
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
"Wow! Bodacious boobies, sis!"
Thanks to the Filmspotting SVU podcast, I discovered shoutfactorytv.com last night and watched what I thought was Night of the Creeps because I read too fast, and turned out to be this delightful slice of 80's cheese.
Night of the Demons is just pure, Halloween party fun. You could double feature this with Return of the Living Dead and have one helluva good celebration. I say Return of the Living Dead because this feels similar in tone to me. It's big, brassy cheese meant to delight and thrill more than it's meant to scare. But I like how committed it is to being ruthless. No one is safe in this movie, and when the climax builds…
E' un mio cultissimo, proprio per il suo essere fottutamente anni 80: corridoi esteticamente videoclipposi, nebbioline, luci tendenti al blu, la mitica Hull House (l'inarrivabile scena del rossetto...).
I personaggi, carne da macello.

Did you hear what they said, Rodg? "Not tonight." They won't go to hell tonight because-- because it's Halloween, right? That's why they won't go to hell tonight, right? Because it's the one night of the year they don't have to. Remember what Helen said, Rodg? Didn't she say that tonight's a special night of evil? Remember? Didn't she say that tonight's the one night of the year when all things unclean are free to roam among us? Remember? That's what she said, Rodg, right? I think if we just hang out here until-- till dawn we'll be all right.
Yeah-- yeah! I bet you're right!
Thanks for all your input, Rodg.
Girl, it's camp.
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.
