Demons (1985) Review:

Beautifully disgusting is my usual tagline for when someone asks me about that one! Lumberton Lava’s cult classic is one that really ranks high on my list of “best practical special effects” movie list.

Despite featuring demons, the film is pretty much a zombie film, at least that’s how the story feels like. The movie mixes horror and gore with elements of comedy, with some parts being funny on purposes, such as the exaggerated attitude of the actors, and some others that probably aren’t. Now for the gore, that movie is a delight. The demons attacks and transformations are really well done and all very graphic, with lots of colors and lots of blood. The practical special effects and make-up typical from the 80 really give a unique gruesome look to the movie!

Now I am always careful when recommending this one to horror novice who might find Demons a little old and ridiculous. I usually advise people to wait until they have seen a few horrors before getting into that really genre-oriented horror flick in order to truly appreciate it.
