5.0 out of 5 stars A must see horror April 2 2004
This movie was HILARIOUS. It had all the gore you want in a horror movie. Itallians are the only filmmakers that have the balls to make horror movies like these, not like americans that shy away from gore (except Tobe Hooper's Tx Chaincsaw Massacre). This movie is perfect for watching with friends and drinking beer, and the laughs will come.

5.0 out of 5 stars Bone-crunching, spleen eating horror! June 23 2003
Italian horror maestro Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava joined forces to produce two of the goriest, most merciless, most stylish, and arguably the best zombie films ever made: for my money, Demons and Demons2 are nectar of the Gods for gorehounds and horror movie fanatics.
Plot, character development, and pacing all take a backseat to the most important element of any zombie movie: brain-eating, bone-crunching, viscera-devouring goodness. Both of the Demons movies deliver the goods in spades, and have the additional virtue of gorgeous and crisp cinematography, eerie and stylish lighting, and the highest splatter-to-running-time ratio of any horror movie ever made, with the possible exception of Peter Jackson's Dead/Alive.
Best of all, the "Demons" movies are utterly merciless: all of the more benevolent horror movie conventions are gleefully abandoned. See dewey-eyed adorable little children get mutated into flesh-devouring demons! See one of the little demon children explode as it gives 'birth' to a yowling, screaming little imp! See a fluffy, loyal family dog growl and bark at a pool of demon blood, only to be transformed into an insane and hungry monster, its snout rolling back up over its eyeballs as a new set of green 'eyes' grow out of its nose! See a blind man get his eyes gouged out even as he begs for the demon to stop!
In short, both movies are sheer horror genius, a 7-course feast (with some nice 1987 Chateau LaTour thrown in) for the discriminating gorehound. It simply doesn't get any better than this, folks, and best of all, you can watch Demons/Demons2 again and again and never get tired of it. Can you honestly say that about "Night of the Living Dead"?
But let's dispense, quickly, with the plot: there is none.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's not art, but I like it April 6 2003
I really don't know how someone can criticize these films, what exactly were you expecting? This isn't Citizen Kane here, it's Demons. These are films about monsters running amuck and slicing people into potato salad. Abandon any kind of expectations for these films and go with it. As you know, Demons has people trapped in a movie theater with creepy, taloned, fanged, greenish creatures. There is absolutely no explanation given for this event. You never discover who made this film(the film playing in the theater), who's showing it, why they're showing it, how the entrances get blocked off, how the mask ends up in the lobby, etc. But who cares anyway? There are tons of things that don't make sense-people turn into Demons without actually getting scratched, a mini-Demon hops out of somebody. None of these things make sense, but the movie's fun to watch either way.
Demons 2 is basically a remake, but the setting is now switched to an apartment complex. Everyone seems to be watching this film about the events of the first Demons film. This film seems to be a documentary, then it seems to be an actual movie, then the events seem to actually be taking place in the real world in some other location. There is no camera crew with the people in the "documentary", and Bava films their little adventure as though it's actually happening-But it's supposed to be being viewed by the people in the apartment!! And how does a Demons come through a tv screen for no reason? Personally, I love these weird unexplained moments because it gives the movie(s) more of a nightmare/fantasy element. These films seemed much scarier to me when I was a kid(I didn't understand the concept of bad dubbing, acting, writing, etc. I was just creeped out by the Demons), but I still love them.

3.0 out of 5 stars Somewhat disappointed Feb. 2 2003
I heard a lot of good things about Demons, but I thought the movie was only decent. It's a lot more original than the majority of brainless Italian horror, with the evil movie theater and the events in the film becoming reality. Yeah, there's a few gore scenes but nothing jaw dropping.
I far prefer Fulci's zombie flicks or Cannibal Ferox/Holocaust to Argento's style. Demons is missable, if you are a die hard Italian splatter fan then rent it.
It's easy to see why American horror flicks from the 80s are more popular than the cheap Italian knock offs.

3.0 out of 5 stars dissapointing double feature Jan. 29 2003
Despite a great video transfer and digital sound, this is still a dissapointing DVD. The formulaic trailors are dull(why didn't they showcase the originals?), the commentary by Bava and company is at best ear-jarring, and also some of the original score is ommited, leaving some scenes totally devoid of suspense. View these movies only in their original form. Other than that... buy this DVD at your own viewing risk.

3.0 out of 5 stars Great gore and imagery, so-so movies Oct. 12 2002
I'm reviewing Demons and Demons 2 (aka Demoni and Demoni 2) together because they are very similar movies made a year apart by mostly the same people. They were written by legendary director and writer Dario Argento along with Lamberto Bava, the son of the late, great director Mario Bava. Dario also produced both movies and Lamberto directed both movies. They were both filmed in Italy and made to look like an American city. They were both filmed in English with decent dubbing for the most part. They both very much celebrate the 80's both in music and fashion. And they are both very gory with lots of blood, and splatter.
Demons starts out with a strange man with a partial mask made out of metal riding around on roller skates passing out invitations to a horror movie at the reopening of some old theater. At the start of the movie the theater is about half full and the story on the screen is about teenagers who discover some old graveyard and a mask that turns one of them into zombies which starts the whole "If you get bitten by a zombie you turn into a zombie" thing. A girl attending the movie with a friend and their bald headed pimpish/he-man/studley-man type date is in the lobby and tries on a mask that is part of a lobby promotional prop for the film. She gets pricked by something sharp in the mask and it draws a little blood. After they sit down she notices some blood on her cheek and goes to the bathroom to clean up. In the bathroom she changes into a zombie and this starts the whole chain. After awhile there are zombies running around everywhere and the non-zombies left in the theater are trapped because the doors are inexplicably chained shut. Since there is no escape they have to resort to fighting and of course it is just a matter of time before they are slowly picked off.

4.0 out of 5 stars Demons 2=Evil Dead 2
Although both films suffer from some really stupid dialogue--dubbed or not--I found Demons 2 to be the more enjoyable and more "creative" of the two. Read more

First off, let me say that this is stylishly directed and has a promising story idea. However, logic, and character development is nowhere to be found in this Italian horror film... Read more
