A handful of recognizable faces, fair amount of ghoulishness, and peppy can-do attitude can't match the cheese-fueled charm of the faulted-but-fun original.

there are characters about whom we never care, incidents which never grip, and only the occasional moments of creative grand guignol ever raise the viewer's pulse.

Night of the Demons is far from great. But considering the truly awful, unwatchable direct-to-video horror titles that make their way to retail and rental shelves, it's easily among the best of the bunch.

When you've missed the nuances of a lipstick-in-boob scene, you know you're lost.

Certainly inferior to the original Demons, the glossy remake nevertheless has a few shining moments before a case of the low-budget blahs comes to crash the party.

Audience Reviews for Night of the Demons

A total ridiculous load of nonsense packed with sexy girls in corsets, fishnets, gross bloody effects and plenty of lesbian demon makeout time mixed with human tits n ass...and it was totally cool.

Yep its a throw away film with a common, unoriginal, predictable, cliched character ridden plot which you've seen over and over but like other films in this genre ('Plane of the Dead' 'Zombie Strippers') it actually has some great makeup and effects which raise the film above other throw away films.

The makeup work is really nice and reminded me of Tom Savini's type of work, really spot on yet a little tacky looking at the same time, think 'From Dusk Till Dawn' and you're there. Unknown cast accept for Edward Furlong who looks rather bloated and permanently hung over but his name does lure the experienced cinema goer. It only needs one biggish name really doesn't it.

Pointless film, great horror effects = guilty pleasure. A decent tacky 80's throw back with sexy girls in very little clothes. Need I say more?.

As far as remakes go, I'm as skeptical as the next horror fan. Very often Horror remakes will be hit and miss, and most of the time they'll miss the mark by a long shot. But thankfully, this is not the case with The Night of the Demons remake. The remake is one terrific blood soaked gore fest. I don't understand why the remake got so many bad reviews. The film is actually a well crafted film using obviously the premise of the original, but doing something very amusing with the whole idea and reinvents the formula in a whole new way. The result is an awesome remake with plenty of blood, guts, nudity and horror. Helming the film is director Adam Gierasch, a diehard Horror fan. Gierasch's directing is superb and his love of horror films shows on screen. The remake Of Night of the Demons is one of the best since My Bloody Valentine 3D. The film is great Halloween viewing and like the original, is a definite must see for all horror fans. Obviously the strength of the film lies within the gore content, and the film has no shortage of blood and guts. The cast is average, and there's not really anyone enjoyable on screen, so when they become Demons, you really don't care about the characters. Even if there's not really anyone great on screen, Shannon Elizabeth and Edward Furlong are the best here, and Elizabeth is perfectly cast as Angela. However I feel the characters aren't that great. But in the end, for a film like this, it's the gore that counts. The Night of the Demons remake certainly delivers on blood and guts, and it's what makes this film so much fun in the end. Night of the Demons isn't a flawless remake, but it's still much better than most remakes out there, and considering that this is a direct to video remake, its pretty good and very entertaining. This is one of the best remakes that I've seen in quite some time, is almost as good as Kevin Tenney's original film. However, this film will never beat the original. This remake also features a cameo from Linnea Quigley who played in the first one. A terrific and horrifying film that's sure to please fans of the original.

Sure, okay. Whatever. Nothing new here. Some gore and flesh for those in need.
