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…
Super weird. Pretty entertaining. The soundtrack is pretty great - and that dance sequence! The makeup and effects are pretty good too. I just wish the energy was more consistent throughout. The slow pacing and dips in action make it easy to lose interest, regardless of the wackiness.
Film #8 of the February 2016 Scavenger Hunt
Item #8: A film you consider the perfect date movie
This may not be the smartest horror movie but I had fun watching it. The characters are all one-dimensional with practically every cliche in the book. The virgin, the horny boyfriend, the slut, the goth, the fat asshole, the token black, etc. It's hysterical to see 30 year old Leanna Quigley playing a teenager. I wonder if the sequels are any good, I guess I'll find out soon enough.
It's never as good as the memory I have of seeing it for the first time; too slow, takes a long time to ramp up, not as much grue as I remember, etc. That said, it's still entertaining enough, and makes me want to finally get around to seeing the sequels, in hopes they crank up the dial on things just a little bit.
This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The only horror film where the black guy DOESN'T die.
The plot is basic, it centers on a group of teens, that throw a party at an abandoned funeral parlor on Halloween which is hosted by their freakishly weird classmate Angela. During a seance, weird things began to happen which opens the portal to, you guessed it, demons being unleashed. It is not long until the demons take possession of the teenagers, causing havoc for the rest of the movie.
Don't get me wrong. "Night of the Demons" isn't a bad flick, for it's heart is in the right place. However it sorely lacked in the acting department. The performances were so terrible that it wasn't even good for horror movie standards. The lead actress' performance was so bad, that…
Deaths Hell yeah!
Overall mmm yeah I'll dig it on a Halloween night.
I see a lot of potential in this film I really got kinda scared at some point but some parts were just laughable and I think it's just cause of the year it was made.
Overall I really liked it ... It's okay but it's not night of the living death ... Close tho.
A group of teens throw a Halloween night party at an abandoned funeral parlor, and accidentally awaken demonic spirits locked away in its crematorium. Needless to say, this turns out spectacularly bad for everyone involved.
This minor cult classic takes a while to get goin' and in spite of some decent gore bits and some nice T&A, it's pretty much endless scenes of idiots running and screaming through dark corridors for most of its run time. I've seen worse but I've seen lots better. Skippable.
I LOVE this movie.
