You can't go wrong with this 1980's gem. Low budget horror just the way it was meant to be.

Lipstick doesn't go there!

"Night of the Demons is a fun little film to watch during October. Set on Halloween night with teenage punks deciding to hold a seance at the abandoned funeral home on the outskirts of town, it's high quality cheese all the way. With some above average dialogue("eat a bowl of...") and a real sense of creepiness there isn't much not to like. The opening titles alone are worth viewing for the cool animation. Some interesting gore and a very memorable scene involving lipstick put this high on the list. If you like to watch Horror for laughs this film is for you.

"In the land of forgettable B movies spawned in the 80's, we sometimes find castoffs that have been unkindly disregarded and, by many, forgotten. Night of the Demons is one such film, mixed into the lot because of its budget restraints and somewhat predictable approaches to horror (people in "possessed home" being slaughtered by spirits, demons, etc.) Still, this movie did possess one thing that most of these showing lacked. It had atmosphere that was simply eerie and a playground (Hull House) worth of a classic demonic killing field.
For anyone who doesn't know about the film (without spoiling anything), its Halloween night and some teens decide that they want to spice up their lives a bit. So, they decide to party at Hull House, built upon the scene of brutal slayings predating colonization of the area. Soon, the teens discover that its not all fun and games when dealing with a possessed house, and have to struggle to leave with their lives.
Personally, I find this to be one of the more appealing products from this time, and would recommend it to anyone who enjoys a little comedy, some decent special effects that play off the horrific setting, and loads of characters ripe for the plucking."

"Underated B Horror This is a pretty funny and surprisingly solid B Horror Film. The story is by the numbers, and the acting by now seems a bit dated, but when the fun starts in the house, the film takes a creepy turn.A group of kids hang out at the abandoned Hull House on Halloween night. Hull House is a house possessed, so the demons that inhabit it are pure evil. They kids have their party until someone decides to play around and summon the demons. And one by one they begin getting posessed by a demonic forces.It's up to Judy to out live, and out last her demonic attackers.
Amelia Kinkade plays Angela. Watch for her creepy dance sequence. It's pretty memorable and what happens right after elevates Amelia's character, Angela from B Movie character to a horror powerhouse like Freddy and Jason. But unfortunately the 2 sequels that followed are inferior and wound up botching her character. Linnea Quigley does something very interesting with a tube of lipstick. And the gore effects are pretty cool.It's a solid film that is finally getting the DVD release it deserves. If you are a horror fan you'll be happy to own this little known film. It brings back memories of the golden days, when horror had it's own full fledged section in video stores with hundreds of titles to choose from."
The Best Horror Movie Ever. Period.

"This is one hell of a frightening ride. This movie has been my favorite move for a long time and I finally get to write a review on it! Right from the start(when the music starts) you know your going to need to hold onto something tightly. For the first half hour of the movie...it's the funniest thing you will ever see!! Stooge (Hal Havins) is the not so typical foul mouthed party animal. The director had a really good feel on what would appeal to an 80's teen.(and 90's teen in the near future.) Hull House is by far the best environment for a movie like this. The music is the greatest horror movie music ever! Far surpassing that of Nightmare on Elm Street's. It throws alot into the atmosphere of the movie. The first time I saw this movie, it gave me that trapped feeling. No escape.I loved it! The special effects are amazing, done by the same man that did them for Ghostbusters and Nightmare on Elm Street. Beautifull. Dennis Micheal Tenney did an incredible job recording those awsome party songs! Kevin Tenney is a great director who had his sights set on scaring the world with Night of the Demons. Did a good job too! The movie is just too much for some people. If you like being scared, feeling like there is no escape, or just want to have a good laugh with your friends...pick up Night of the Demons."
This IS the Unrated version

"Don't be fooled by what Amazon says here about this being rated R. I checked the Anchor Bay website and the ONLY DVD they're releasing of this movie (and on 8/24/04) is the UNRATED and completely UNCENSORED version. I couldn't be happier because my unrated VHS is really getting worn out, and it wasn't in the greatest of shape to begin with considering I found it at a hole-in-the-wall video store previously viewed. This DVD has lots of nice extras, too, with interviews and such. As usual, Anchor Bay comes through for us again! Also, keep in mind that they're releasing Witchboard (Unrated and Uncut) on the same day :)"
