Conclusion: It is very easy to tell that this budget release of Lamberto Bava's Demons from Synapse Films offers a far more pleasing technical presentation of the film than Arrow Video's Region-B release, which we reviewed back in 2012.
Conclusion: In its lewdness and shoddiness, there are small shimmers of brilliance, however small and overshadowed by its explicitness, which make Jess Franco's 'The Demons' an interesting watch. The Blu-ray arrives with strong audio and picture quality considering the source's age and history.
Conclusion: "The Demons" is an acquired taste, ideal for those who are well-versed in nunsploitation or Franco's spiraling filmography. It's quite slow and a few dreamscape scenarios introduce confusion, not artful mischief.
Conclusion: If you enjoy horror/splatter films, then you do not want to miss Arrow Video's release of Lamberto Bava's cult film Demons . It delivers just about everything these types of films are supposed to deliver.
Summary: It's been hit with the garishly colourful eighties stick, but existing fans of the gory splatterfest will revel in this quality transfer of Lamberto Bava and Dario Argento's cinema-based shocker, where art becomes life, people become demons, and helicopters fall through roofs without apology.
