Movie Info

The ultimate Halloween party becomes the setting for a terrifying night of satanic slaughter when seven teenagers become trapped in a mansion filled with rampaging demons in this remake Kevin S. Tenney's influential 1988 horror classic. Everyone in New Orleans knows the dark story of Broussard Mansion, but none of the locals have dared set foot in the notorious estate...until now. Angela Feld has chosen Broussard Mansion as the setting for this year's annual Halloween bash. No one throws a party quite like Angela, and when her friends catch wind of the plan, curiosity takes precedence over fear. Later that night, the party is packed and the music is blasting when the police show up to spoil the fun and send everyone packing. The only ones left behind are Angela, Maddie, Lily, Suzanne, Colin, Dex, and Jason, and they're not ready to call it a night just yet. Upon venturing down into the basement, Colin and Angela make a grisly discovery that sets into motion a diabolical series of events. There is no escape from the fear that follows next, because as the doors of Broussard Mansion mysteriously lock, a horde of ancient demons rise from the darkness to unleash the infernal powers of Hell on the desperate teens, who will fight to the death to protect their immortal souls. Shannon Elizabeth, Monica Keena, Edward Furlong, and Tiffany Shepis star.

Critic Reviews for Night of the Demons

  • 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.

  • Edward Furlong plays a depressed, catastrophe-hit loser who goes to a party in a haunted house and is duly pursued by demons. You feel the part wasn't much of a stretch.

  • It's machine-tooled for the horror fanbase: brash, slick, yucky -- by-the-numbers stuff.

  • 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.

  • 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.

    No great shakes but this mid-profile Hollywood horrorshow works much better than most other '70s-'80s remake attempts. In fact you can skip the first 45 minutes to get the good stuff, and with an R-rating there is plenty of blood and well-made grotesque demon masks. Shannon Elizabeth is at her sluttiest and Monica Keena a major hottie, plus some fun cameos like original <i>NOTD</i> star Linnea Quigley and Troma horror vet Tiffany Shepis.

    I forget when the last time was I watched the original (I'm sure it was within the year or maybe last year) but I think the original was a bit dated and when I saw there was a remake I was skeptical at first but decided to make it part of my Halloween Movie marathon for this year. I wasn't disappointed. I think it's an improvement on the first, Maybe even better. Is there a party, Yes. Do they have some of the scene & elements as the original.. of course; The best parts & most memorable ones. Of course with the upgrade you have better looking demons which I think the best one is.. well I really don't want to give away, but Its one of the girls Not the one that was giving the party although that make-up/mask whatever they used was cool. I'll just say the best one to me is the somewhat gory one. Worth a watch.. oh & there's a sequel (which should be coming next) C+

    I liked it! There are some parts in here that are VERY gross\disturbing\bloody\entertaining. It was a little slow-paced, but the pace eventually picks up. Not the greatest horror flick out there, but still a pretty good\entertaining movie.

    It's hard to figure out what to even say about this movie. I guess I could say that if you for some reason wanted to watch one of the worst movies ever made, this would be your pick.
