A group of kids go to a Halloween party, only to have to face down a group of demons.
Did you expect more from Shannon Elizabeth and Edward Furlong? Yeah, me either. Night of the Demons proves you can take a trashy 80’s horror movie and make it worse. Or better. I can never tell in these “terribly awesome” type of flicks.
This remake borrows the title of the 1988 original and cannibalizes the rest. Angeline is having a Halloween party in New Orleans. After the party is busted, a group of twenty somethings decide to stay all night. As the evening grows, the guests discover the gruesome past and hilarity ensues. By “hilarity”, I mean people start becoming possessed. I can forgive a lot, but way to sully my beloved Type O Negative (RIP PETE) by adding them to the soundtrack. I’m glad Peter Steele wasn’t alive to see this.
This flick can be properly summarized with this photo.
Halloween sluts be triflin’.
Uh, nudity. some decent bloodshed, and it happens on Halloween. Terrible or not, this is still a good moment. They did include the terrible lipstick scene btw.
The bad: Everything else.
While this is terrible in the standard confines of a movie, there is something to be said for the depth of terrible it sinks to. This has the potential to be a great Halloween season flick for friends to gather round with the recreational beverage of your choice. Skip it unless you plan on watching it in a party atmosphere.
