A great remake of a great horror film.

An okay remake of the 80's classic.

Night of the Demons is both appropriately brain-dead and stupidly entertaining. Gore fans and fuck fans, alike, should find something here.

Baird, Keena and Elizabeth. Love all three.

Fun to watch one time, but falls way short of the original.

The original is no masterpiece but it has an awesome 80's Halloween charm. This goes through the motions and delivers a few good moments but both as an homage and a modern horror it fails. Furlong in particular is awful.

A very good remake for those fans of the original . plus Monica keena and Edward furlong make a great team in this reimagining of Kevin Tenney's horror classic

"She... She jjuust.... Pulled lipstick out of her vagina!" thats explains what you're in for if you watch this sorry excuse of a horror.

It's creepy. It has annoying and perfectly timed music, but it just feels like a drag.

It is a flabbergastingly stupid remake of an already foul, stupid movie.

It's fun, simply go with it and enjoy. It's not a g+d awful movie for a remake, I liked the back story and the updating.

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?.

Hollywood would you stop trying to modernize old B rated horror movies. It's just pathetic.

Not even worth this half a star.

This film remake looks the part and has some good effects, but that is about it - both the story and level of acting is weak.

Night of the Demons is a remake of an 80's cult film, that I unfortunately haven't seen yet(it's getting a Shout Factory Blu-ray release early next year, which I'm buying the SHIT out of), so I can't really compare. But the film has a similar plot to The Evil Dead and the Italian film, Demons. A group of people are trapped in a single location fighting off demons. It seemed like a staple plot in the 80's.

This is a pretty entertaining film, with goofy special effects(a lipstick tube being inserted in a woman's breast and removed from her vag) and a general sense of fun and craziness throughout. It also has a pretty decent soundtrack(including a song from Wednesday 13) and the score was done by James Wan regular, Joseph Bishara. But his work is very minimal, unfortunately.

I do have some issues with the film. It's poor intentional humor that often fell flat and the characters, which aren't really likable or well developed. I would have liked just a bit more characterization for the main chick, as she was the only character I found alright in terms of likability. But don't go into this movie thinking you'll really root for any of the characters. Cuz you won't. And Edward Furlong looked and sounded like he was taking the drugs that he was supposedly selling in the movie. The years really haven't been kind to the guy.

Overall, I was pleasantly surprised by this movie, having purchased it at Blockbuster(RIP) for 4.99 and having low expectations. It' not a good movie by any means, but it's fun and entertaining for folks who like low-budget, trashy horror movies.

Final Score: 4/10
