Set in Berlin, a new theater has opened which is showing a realistic violent horror movie about demons and the occult then suddenly some of the audiences transform into demons literally and ripping almost everyone to shreds, only some humans must defend themselves and find a way out.

A well made, original and entertaining horror action fantasy from director Lamberto Bava ( Director of " Blade in the Dark" and "Shock") and produced by legendary Italian horror maestro Dario Argento ( of "Suspiria" fame) loaded with great make-up effects, gore, action, a decent story and a nice twist in the end makes this a definite must see movie for fans of the genre. The DVD is quite good in picture and sound with fine extras especially the commentary by Lamberto Bava.

I rate this as one of the scariest and here's why. Years ago, when it was new and playing at the theater I saw it and let me tell you, seeing this film in a darkened theater is one terrifying experience. Perhaps because the demons were terrorizing the victims in a theater, I don't know, but it was beyond creepy and I still remember being scared out of mind to this day.

To say the least, I was totally rocked by this film! I loved the story about people being trapped in a movie theater as a demon is running around turning other members into demons. It's a hell of a claustrophobic thriller! Sure the film lacks some logic and sense in some parts, but its not enough to drive you away from enjoying the movie. Very stylish directing by Lamberto Bava and superb special effects! Gore junkies will not be disappointed. The head bangin' soundtrack is also great. One can't resist to get rocked as the hero is riding a motorcycle through the theater lopping heads off of demons with a sword while Accept's Fast as a Shark is blastin' in the background. A truely memorable scene! The ending is also superb! So don't hesitate to pick up this film; it's one hell of a ride! One of the best and most entertaining horror films to be imported from Italy!

I first saw this film alongside Beyond by Fulci, and at the time I got the films confused only that Demons was even more horrifying since it takes place in a movie theater and I was in a movie theater when I saw it and subsequently Beyond for the second time. That being said the film is highly recommended for gore afficiandos and films of italian horror. The sequels to this film which I have not seen, received poor reviews. Much like the sequels to Fulci's Zombi were not very good. Yes there's gore in this film but there's at least a bit of story. Great for a drunken weekend with buddies who have similar interests.

What can be said about Demons ? The one thing that comes to mind is that it's stood the test of time after 16 years. I consider myself a huge movie buff and this is one of the films that scarred me as a child. I can reall watching this flick with my dorm buddies in both the Air Force and colleage and they were enterainted by it. What makes this film so scary is the gore and effects. When I was 4 my parents banned from me seeing this movie. My first time seeing it I know why the film isn't for those who can't handle gore or have weak stomach. The musical score and tense pacing are amazing and if you watch the film in pitch black with surround sound it'll give you a few scary moments. I give the fim *** out of four. I give this rating based on the camera work and score. The film's only bad point is the dubbing.

"Demons" is very similar to "Evil Dead" in its sense of claustrophobia and impending dread, and makes for a fun Saturday-night guilty pleasure. Entirely enjoyable, and more frightening than I remember from seeing it in the theater.

This is a great 80's horror movie. It's dubbed english over italian, but you won't even notice. It's a movie about a bunch of people who get free tickets to a movie that happens to be a porthole to summon Demons. If you like old horror movies you will love demons, also check out demons2.

As a huge fan of Italian horror films and the 80's in general, I knew I was going to live this one. The movie takes place in a cinema in Berlin (?) where a group of people have been invited to attend a free screening of a horror movie. Things get a bit complicated when the events in the movie begin happening to the unfortunate patrons in the theater and before long the movie goers find themselves battling and becoming demons as they try to escape the cinema. The movie has all the gore and special effects one could hope for from an Italian horror flick but it also has a George Romero zombie film quality given how the demon plague spreads to people. Highlights include great atmosphere, great visuals, and a terrific climax including a motorcycle, a samurai sword and a downed helicopter. My favorite aspect of the film, however, is the great 80's soundtrack featuring Motley Crue, Billy Idol, Saxon and Accept.
