Product Description

Amazon.ca

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

5.0 out of 5 stars Exciting Italian horror romp! April 4 2006
By A Customer
Format:DVD
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.

5.0 out of 5 stars The nightmare I still have decades later Feb. 23 2009
Format:DVD
Though I couldn't remember the name of this movie for years, I never forgot the first time I watched it - and the chase scenes in the theater are ones that I'm sure I'll never forget... for true horror afficianados only.

5.0 out of 5 stars Hidden 80's gem! Dec 25 2009
Format:DVD
Like many of the reviews on here, you'l read the same thing: It's a horror film that defines the 1980's and does it well: The soundtrack, The gore and the story (or lack of) . It's intense on the visual and very weak on the plot, If you're in for a night of beer and buddies... Kill it it's perfect! sums up the 80's in few fowel strokes.

You'l love it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Outstanding Horror Film May 25 2004
Format:DVD
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.

3.0 out of 5 stars It's all about the gooeyness Oct. 23 2011
By Andre Farant TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
The acting is bad, the dialogue atrocious, and the story just this side of non-existent. This one's all about the phenomenal make-up effects. Gory and shockingly well done, those effects stand the test of time--unlike pretty much everything else about the film.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not bad zombie movie March 15 2011
By Sorpse
Format:DVD
It was above average. The begining had some real nasty gore but tamed it down to average for the remainder. Its made in the 80s so everything looks older and the styles are different, which is a good throwback. The characters werent that great besides the one black guy having a pretty cartoony voice. The ending and storyline were nothign special but since its set in a movie theatre it has its own sense of style. Pretty decent zombie flick but nothing too too amazing.
