Night of the Demons Movie Review

Night of the Demons is a 1988 horror movie directed by Kevin S. Tenney and starring Cathy Podewell, Amelia Kinkade and Linnea Quigley.

The movie begins with a girl called Angela(Kinkade), an unpopular weirdo who is having a party with her pal Suzanne(Quigley) at a place called Hull House, which has a gruesome history and is supposed to be haunted. A group of friends are going to go to her party. They are Judy(Podewell), her boyfriend Jay, Max and Frannie. Another group are also coming. They are Stooge, Roger and Helen. An ex boyfriend of Judy called Sal also turns up. Angela wants to play party games and have a seance. They all decide to do it. They have to look into a mirror and when Helen does, she sees her own death and freaks out. The mirror breaks and something is unleashed in the house. It possesses Suzanne.

Roger gets nervous and he wants to leave. He takes Helen with him and they try to get away. Suzanne is acting strangely and she kisses Angela.  Roger and Helen can't leave. Then Helen disappears.
He locks himself into the car. Jay and Judy fall out when she discovers that he just wants her for sex.
She gets locked into a room. Suzanne is changing. So is Angela. She dances with Stooge and kisses him. She also bites off his tongue. Sal finds Suzanne. She is acting weird and he decides he wants to go.  Helen gets killed and Roger sees her and runs off. Jay and Suzanne are together and they are going to have sex. She is a demon, though and she pokes out his eyes. Stooge is also a demon and he kills Max and Frannie. 

Roger, Sal and Judy have to stick together as everyone else is either dead or a demon. Angela is floating around after them.  Sal gets killed running away from her. Judy and Roger try and escape from the demons who are after them. The dead bodies reanimate and chases them too. They have to try and escape underground and get away from the house and the grounds. They make it out just as the sun comes up. This movie was very entertaining. There were some great scenes and I liked it a lot.  I liked the story and the cast were not bad either. I had fun with this and I found it enjoyable overall. I can see why people like this film and it is a must for horror fans, especially fans of 80's horror. I recommend it and I will give it a 7/10.
