New Release Review - Night of the Demons (2010)

Photobucket

OUT NOW ON DVD & BLU-RAY

Angela (Shannon Elizabeth) is throwing a decadent Halloween party at New Orleans' infamous Broussard Mansion. But after the police break up the festivities, Maddie (Monica Keena) and a few friends stay behind. Trapped inside the locked mansion gates, the remaining guests uncover a horrifying secret and soon fall victim to seven vicious, blood-thirsty demons.

Like all of the better horror remakes out there, Night of the Demons 2010 is a film that is right off the bat clearly made by a group of people who absolutely adore the original film. Because of this factor, director Adam Gierasch & Co. have been able to create a revamp that manages to evoke the fun party flick spirit of that film, while at the same time updating the story and characters for a new generation as well as amping up your and their favorite aspects of the original ; just wait until you see the lipstick in the nipple scene in this one! Featuring more sex and body horror than a David Cronenberg directed fuck flick, a soundtrack that I would buy and rock out to even if I hated the movie, a cameo that will make fans of the original smile with childish glee over the reminder of perhaps their very first horror movie induced erection and Edward fucking Furlong (!) kicking some serious demonic ass, Demons 2010 is one hell of a fun ride and totally worthy of sharing a name with the 1988 cult classic that we all know and love. If you're looking to switch up your Halloween night viewing schedule this year, I think you'll find this to be one remake you will not regret watching instead of its original. Better yet, just watch 'em both back to back, for the ultimate Halloween party experience.

If there's one negative thing I have to say about the movie, it's that I personally feel Shannon Elizabeth was miscast in the role of Angela. I'll take Amelia Kinkade over her any day of the week ...

OH! Be sure to keep an eye out for Victor Crowley and Saw's puppet Billy, as they both make brief appearances during Angela's Halloween party! It's little touches like these that help make the movie so much fun.
