Art imitating art is the basis of this demonic tale of a group of invited guests who are granted a free lunch in the form of a screening of a horror film that brings naturalism to life. Baited and penned in, this walled-in feeling quickly turns to screams and fear as those who are dead lust after the flesh of those living. The free lunch has turned full circle in the cinema of hell and it is only a question of time before the demons from the abyss are asking for second portions. Written by Cinema_Fan Several people are invited to join the opening of a new movie theatre. As the horror film shown to the guests gets more and more violent, the people start to transform one by one into bloodthirsty demons. The remaining guests begin the desperate battle for their lives. Written by Winnowill A new theatre is to be inaugurated and people are invited to watch a movie. A woman tries on a mask, the mask pierces her skin and this causes her to transform into a demon. She then bites others and they turn into demons, turning slowly the whole theatre into mayhem, only few survive the blood-thirsty demons. Written by Nebiros A mysterious man in a metallic mask (actually the assistant director) is handing out free tickets to the premiere of a film entitled _Demons_ at a new cinema renovated from an old gothic structure. Cheryl and her best friend decide to skip music class to see the movie. A bald, black pimp and several of his whores are bothering people in the lobby. One tries on a demon mask, and it cuts her face. The cut will not go away, and eventually starts to fester, turning her into a green-drooling demon, which transforms people with her nails. Two guys sit down with Cheryl and her friend viewing the film documenting a similar case to what is happening in the restroom, associating it with the prophecies of Nostradamus. Eventually the theatre becomes a walled-in trap, and those who survive have to rely on some disgusting punks who snort coke from a Coke can to come to the rescue, riding their motorcycles around in the theatre. The guy who prefers Cheryl becomes a gun-toting Ash-like hero, while the others transform into demons for the slaying one-by-one. Written by Scott Hutchins While young Cheryl is riding the West Berlin subway, a strange man in a metallic mask hands her tickets to a movie at a newly renovated theater. She invites her friend Kathy to go with her, and they meet up with 2 young men in the lobby. A pimp and 2 of his girls are checking out displays in the lobby, one of which is a demon mask from the film. One of the prostitutes tries on the mask and is cut while removing it. While the film (a violent horror movie) is starting, the woman’s wound starts oozing green slime…and in seconds she becomes a hideous, fanged & clawed demon! She attacks anyone who crosses her path, and soon the theater is filled with people turning into demons – and those trying to avoid attack. The theater exits have disappeared. Even stopping the film doesn’t help, as newer demons appear. Cheryl & George (one of the young men) start a desperate battle for survival, as George rides a motorcycle wielding a samurai sword through the theater, killing demons as he goes. But will the two of them succeed in escaping the evil demons who now inhabit West Berlin’s streets?
What can i say about a movie which combines gore with creepy atmosphere so well.Demons is a movie about a group of people where visit an old theater and see a movie which is about demons who possessed humans.Soon will realized that the movie is real and one by one will become demon and kill each other,only some people stay alive and waits for help in the closed theater full with bloodthirsty demons.Well Lamberto Bava(son of Mario Bava)makes his stunning effort to a world of violence and depravity reenact demons from hell going for blood.The movies contains creepy atmosphere like the style of George.A.Romero's night of the living dead(1968),and such a good gore effects in the tradition of Tom Savini like Dawn of dead(1978),althought the movie have lots of plot holes which never explain.The movie is a masterpiece in the Italian horror genre and succeed to be a cult classic.
Dèmoni (1985)*** out of ****Directed by Lamberto BavaWith Urbano Barberini, Natasha Hovey and Michele Soavi.Lamberto Bava, son of Mario Bava, show us his talent with Hovey, Barberini and others having and invitation to a preview of a movie, without knowing that the horrible things that happen in the film begin to happen in the reality, possessing anyone who is attacked for a demon. Wild, gory and surreal with an apocalyptic premise and genius style that could be a bit better; in spite of that offers a lot of thrills, scares and a great motorcycle's scene. Music by Accept and Billy Idol. Produced by Dario Argento. Look for Michele Soavi in a small but mysterious, important and scary role.
This movie basically has everything you would expect from an Italian genre movie. Gore, blood, demons, a great soundtrack…except no nudity! But oh well, you can't have everything I guess.It's one of those pretty obscure Italian productions, with a mostly Italian cast and crew but it got shot in Germany and dubbed in English.Thing that this movie has especially going for it is its originality. It using some pretty original settings and concept and has an original take on demons. The demons in this movie are being more like zombies, expect with plenty of the speed and superhuman strength to them as well.It's a movie that is especially great to watch for the genre loves. The movie has some absolutely great looking gore in it and lots of time and effort got spend on it, as well as its wonderful gruesome looking makeup effects. And really, it's a very gory movie and also features plenty of creative stuff, you probably have never seen before.I really liked its simple p…
