Summary: I found this surprisingly enjoyable with pretty decent directing and cinematography. As an example, notice how the flashback hanging scene was filmed. Notice also the peculiar angles chosen and the transitions between characters at the party. This was not just standard-TV movie quality with minimal effort.
Excerpt: If you are reading this then you probably have already seen the movie, and know how awesome it is. Real classic, but you are wondering if the PQ and Audio are good enough for a purchase? ABSOLUTELY. PQ is amazing, especially given the age of the film. Intact grain structure and deep black levels. Audio is solid as well.
You know what, I enjoyed it...more than I should have.

Summary: I really liked this movie. It's a remake of a "classic" movie from '88. I saw this one first and everything for me worked. Cheesy horror premise; check. Half naked babes; check. Demons a plenty; check check. And now that I have watched the original I think this version is far superior in both acting and script. Not gonna spoil anything major but the premise is the same, teenagers in a haunted house getting possessed by sneaky demons is the main thing .
Summary: Hey, perhaps if all remakes were as unpretentious and amusing as "Night of the Demons", people wouldn't complain so much about the deterioration of the horror genre in general… This one is several hundred miles away from being a good or even semi-memorable horror movie, but it's entertaining while it lasts and offers plentiful of adequate make-up effects, a suitably light-headed atmosphere and a whole lot of yummy voluptuous actresses in revealing Halloween costumes!
I've seen MUCH worse, overall not a bad fright flick

Excerpt: This film is actually, for it's genre, a decent sexy, well done scare-fest. Scary movies usually cheezeball fast if not kept in check. This film has some very HOT leading ladies, superb make up effects, and a decent pace and chain of events throughout the film. Good metal soundtrack, gore a plenty, and a tad of some racy sex scenes. I've seen MUCH worse than this in this genre of film, and while it's no "Exorcist" hall of famer..
Summary: The only reason this is getting a 2 is because the creature effects were actually pretty good. The movie took too long to get to the gore. I was looking forward to the new plot points, change of location, reason for demons. But none of the saved this terrible movie. Edward Furlong looks like a bloated Jodie Foster and Shannon Elizabeth was sadly under used in the sexy department.
Punk rock demon flick remake with rocking soundtrack, just OK.

Summary: 'NIGHT OF THE DEMONS': Two and a Half Stars (Out of Five) Low budget Halloween horror film from director Adam Gierasch, co-written by Gierasch and Jace Anderson. The same team also co-wrote the Tobe Hooper film 'TOOLBOX MURDERS' and Gierasch directed the 2008 after-dark-horror fest entry 'AUTOPSY' (both entertaining 'B' horror films). This is a remake of the cult classic of the same name from 1988 which spawned two sequels.
Summary: "Uh okay. So, they're demons." Lots of pretty, B-level actresses in slutty Halloween costumes being killed. Lots of dumb guys. A decent amount of gore. A paper-thin plot about some demons haunting a house in New Orleans on Halloween. Not very scary. Ample amounts of chessiness and campiness. Some okay monster designs. An amateurish script. Late-night TV quality production values. Some really terrible Halloween-themed rock music.
Summary: I'm not sure if this was intended on being a remake of the 1980's version of the same title, but they are most certainly not one in the same. This movie is just another case of fluff horror. Cheesy gore, generic demons, and the token occasional boob shot. The acting in this movie was terrible as well, I've seen better performances in a grammar school play than this movie contained.
Excerpt: This movie starts off really well. Things kick in pretty quickly, our main characters are established, and the Halloween colors and vibe shine through the screen very effectively. I was immersed right into the Halloween atmosphere and getting ready to enjoy some bloody demon carnage.
