Product Description

Horror Erupts In A Movie Theater As The Patrons Of A Film About Nostradamus Begin To Transform Into Slavering, Bloodthirsty Things From The Depths Of Hell. Aren'T You Glad You'Re Watching This At Home? Gore-Drenched Effects And A Great Heavy Metal Score Mark This Shocker From Producer Dario Argento, Who Co-Scripted With Director Lamberto Bava. Urbano Barberini, Natasha Hovey Star. 88 Min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtracks: English (Dubbed) Dolby Digital 5.1, Dolby Digital Stereo; Audio Commentary; Behind-The-Scenes Footage; Theatrical Trailers. Dubbed In English.

Lamberto Bava, son of the Italian horror legend and giallo godfather Mario Bava, teamed up with modern master Dario Argento (cowriter and producer) for this slick gorefest, a triumph of style and special effects over movie logic. Set in a refurbished German movie palace, our hapless soon-to-be victims arrive for a sneak preview of a horror movie only to see the gore unfold in the audience, as well as onscreen. While the exposition remains murky, one patron finds that an infected cut leads to a gooey transformation, and every one of her victims follows suit until the snaggle-toothed monsters outnumber the humans. The survivors, trapped in the tomb of a theater, must fend off attacks à la George Romero's Night of the Living Dead. Borrowing liberally from films such as Dawn of the Dead and The Tingler, Demons also anticipates Scream in its cinema-savvy references, not to mention its undeniably Neve Campbell-ish heroine. The blaring heavy-metal-hard-rock soundtrack and the carnival horror-house atmosphere helps remind us that this is all just stupid fun. Despite the overwhelming body count, excessive gore, and rivers of green demon pus, the cartoonishly grotesque killings avoid the sadistic edge of many Italian horror films. By the climax of the film the premise is long forgotten in a ghoul apocalypse, but who's watching this for the story anyway? --Sean Axmaker --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

When I couldn't find this one available for rent, I took a big leap of faith and bought it. I was not disappointed. This is an exciting, fun movie with a theme comparable to 'Night of the Living Dead'. It starts when a young woman accepts complimentary tickets to a newly renovated theater. What she doesn't know is that the film showing at the theater sets a horrible chain of events in motion. A pimp & 2 of his hookers are also in the theater checking out displays, and one of the hookers tries on a mask from the film. As she removes it she is cut, and the cut soon transforms her into a demon! She attacks anyone who crosses her path - and soon the theater is full of 2 types of people; the demons - and those trying to avoid becoming demons. The pimp takes charge and tries to lead the surviviors out of the theater, but that's easier said than done, as the exits have disappeared!
At first I was uncertain how it would look, knowing that the dialogue was dubbed. It was fairly well done, however, and the heavy metal soundtrack along with Claudio Simonetti's score enhanced the film very well. Anyone who likes Italian horror - get this one! You will not be disappointed.

Ok ok... the plot is fine but not incredible, the acting is shocking, the special effects are ridiculous if compared to today...why 5 stars then? IT'S TOTAL FUN! When a prostitute hurts herself with a mask exposed inside an old - fashioned, gloomy cinema in Germany, she realizes something unbelievable: the actors in the movie she is watching hurt themselves with the same mask, turning in a couple of minutes into horrible, blood-thirsty demons...
The atmosphere is claustrophobic, blood and insides are not left hidden, everybody is everybody's bite is turn your friend into a demon. Apocalyptical ending. Great experience.
The film has a widescreen presentation (1.66:1) in English DS 5.1, always clean and almost flawless. Exhaustive audio commentary by Lamberto Bava, Sergio Stivaletti (special effects) and journalist Loris Curci. The extra features comprise a behind-the-scene segment and a theatrical trailer. Two thumbs up for Anchor Bay. Pick it up, it's total entertainment!

Demons has to be one of the single most craziest horror films I've seen in a long time. I was always curious to find out as to what this film was all about, since it was branded as one of the single most scariest film films since Nightmare on Elm Street or any other horror flick for that matter.
Although this has been cited more as a Dario Argento film it is really Lamberto Bava who also deserves to be credited as well since serving as director and Argento as producer.
The film does leave you with bit of clustraphobic feeling since the action centers within a cinema complex. Many disregard this film as being a low rate sleazy euro trash horror flick that only seemed to capitalize on the success of the genre since horror became a thing of the 80's. It's interesting that many underrated horror films are making a bit of a comeback since the launch of DVD back in 1998 with a string of banned horror films such as these and many others presented uncut for the first time.
I would most definitely recommend this as collector's edition providing that you're an Argento fan like myself. The audio commentary from the director himself and make-up artist Sergio Stivilati really does help the viewers to fill in the blanks about the whole film making concept and a few awkwared scenes that didn't seem to make any sense (i.e. the helicopter crashing through the cinema).
This films also does pack quitea few nice babes too: Natasha Hovey as the "damsel in distress" type Cheryl and Fabiola Toledo as one of the doomed prostitutes (also last seen in Bava's A Blade In The Dark). Check out Dario Argento's daughter (no I'm not refering about Asia Argento), but his older daughter Fiore Argento as one of the nicer girls, who gets anasty surprise in the shaft.
All in all, not a bad film at all, just remember not to take it too seriously...

Demons centers around a woman given a ticket to an unnamed film by a mysterious stranger. After arriving at the theater with many other patrons, a film with no title begins to play that shows a pair of couples finding a demon mask in a crypt that supposedly belongs to Nostradamus. (It is learned that the seer predicted the rise of the demons.) One person puts on the mask and turns into a demonic creature who, in turn, infects others. In the movie theater, a prostitute who scratched her face with an identical mask in the lobby turns into a creature depicted on the film. Horror and mayhem insue as panicked patrons try to leave the building only to find out that the doors have vanished. With enough over-the-top special effects to please any gore fan and horror for fear film buffs, Demons is one of the best horror films to come out of the 1980's.

Produced by Dario Argento and directed by Lamberto Bava, this hyper-gory Italian film is about a group of people who are all given free tickets to a horror movie. Soon after it begins, the unsuspecting moviegoers, like the characters in the film, start turning into flesh-hungry zombies. It all sounds promising enough, but that's where the originality ends. The audience inexplicably finds itself trapped inside the theater and the rest of the movie is pure formula: a group of anonymous, one-dimensional characters is picked off one by one by the zombies, only to become zombies themselves, who (you guessed it) pick off the remaining anonymous, one-dimensional characters. Of course, Bava knows that it's all about the gore and, on that score at least, Demons really delivers. There's enough gut munching, eye gouging and scalp tearing to satisfy even the most hardened gorehound, and the special effects (courtesy of Argento regular Sergio Stivaletti) are about as good as they come. Thirty-something types will also appreciate the early '80s heavy-metal soundtrack, which features Mötley Crüe ("Save Our Souls") and Accept ("Fast as a Shark"), among others.
Two and a half stars out of five.
