Excerpt: I love the Demons films and was very happy to see them released on BD. However the steelbook releases were just too expensive for me and I was happy to see them released on standard BD. I originally thought they were the exact same releases but bummed out to see that they were not. They were missing the special features. That being said, the PQ and AQ absolutely makes up for the missing special features.
Rediscovering a cult Italian splatter classic in great quality!
13 June 2013
Excerpt: I owned the DVD of Demons and when I saw Arrow's blu-ray I was blown away by how great their transfer looks, especially for an Italian horror movie from the 80s. I am especially delighted both audio tracks (english/italian) got included and there are english subs for the Italian track.
Excerpt: well i saw it too in english language and it disapointed me too much the sound is very bad only a mono with nothing so when the music come i mean saxon motley crue accept etc it is not as i expected but when the movie finished i look what happens in italien language and it looks more like stereo it was much better so i have to see it again in italian language
Excerpt: Movie : watched this one so many times on dvd released by anchor bay entertainment, the is one of the classic horror movie made in the 80s. The special effect is outstanding and is it up to the par with Evil Dead. Very entertaining Horror Movie PQ : Better than DVD, the picture is not sharp but better than dvd SQ : Disappointing, the English Track is in Mono but the dialog is clear. Overall : Buy it for the better PQ.
Summary: The artwork for this steel is one of my favorites and is much better than the region A release in my opinion. The first film is classic but the second I am not so crazy about but still have much appreciation for it. Thanks again to Zavvi for your great service. It arrived in a timely manner and undamaged! What more could I ask for? Now someone need to bring on Dawn of the Dead (steel book)!
Summary: Demons är en italiensk kultklassiker regisserad av Mario Bavas son, Lamberto Bava. En sann klassiker i splattergenren som var originell då den kom eftersom det var mest zombiefilmer som gällde vid denna tiden. Att filmen tar plats i en sjaskig gammal skräckfilmsbiograf kan inte bli annat än klassiskt och demonerna ser så groteskt äckliga ut så att dom får Regan från Exorcisten att likna Pippi Långstrump.
Summary: På sätt och vis skulle man kunna kalla Demons för Italiens svar på Sam Raimi´s mästerliga Evil Dead fast med mycket mer 80´tals känsla och fler karaktärer. Det är blodigt, mardrömslikt och klaustrofobiskt fast inte utan en viss oskyldig charm förstås. Vad sägs om motorcross, samurajsvärd och demonslakt till tonerna av Accept? Ja, det är precis så rock´n roll som det låter och är det demonsplatter du är ute efter så är det svårt att gå fel med Demons.
