Synapse Films, the kings of procrastination, have finally set a release date for the Italian horror classics Demons, and Demons 2. Appropriately enough, it’s October 29th, 2013.
But there’s a catch. Both movies are limited editions (3000 units a piece), and will be available exclusively through Synapse’s website for a mere $46 each.
In exchange for paying twice what Synapse Blu Rays usually cost at retail, you’ll get the special Steelbook case, featuring original art by Wes Benscoter. Synapse says that they may release regular editions later on, but currently have no plans to do so.
Night of the Demons 2
The events of the first Night of the Demons are now the stuff of ghost stories, told by candle light to lingerie-clad Catholic school girls. Unfortunately, one of those school girls is Melissa ‘Mouse’ Franklin, the younger sister of Angela, the first girl possessed by the demons in the first film (and the poster girl for this one).
Night of the Demons
The original Night of the Demons is a campy Halloween movie featuring a likable cast, gory violence, gratuitous nudity, and a thin layer of humor which makes the movie, above all else, fun. This remake isn’t.
Night of the Demons 3
Night of the Demons 3, the final film in the original trilogy, continues the Halloween tradition of demonic possession and teenage delinquency. The demon Angela, the only character to appear in all three films, is once again portrayed by Amelia Kinkade, who has since moved on to a career as a pet psychic.
Jennifer (Megan Fox) is the hot girl at Devil’s Kettle High; her best friend, Needy, (Amanda Seyfried) is not. Needy loves Jennifer, and Jennifer loves being loved. Jennifer is, essentially, the needier of the two, seeking validation from men, and to prevent any such validation falling on Needy.
Demon City Shinjuku
Eastern Star / Discotek
Shinjuku is a ward in Tokyo. It’s home to Kabukicho, a famous red-light district, and the Metropolitan Government Building, where the administrative functions of Tokyo’s government are carried out (coincidence?). It’s also the site of a horrific demonic infestation, and ground zero for the upcoming apocalypse.
Night Of The Demons
It’s Halloween, and ten assorted teens have assembled for a night of debauchery. The ‘creepy girl,’ Angela has chosen Hull House as the scene; an abandoned funeral parlor that is now steeped in urban legend. As Frannie, the asian girl says, ‘I’ve heard stories about this place ever since I was a kid. The Hull Family met a pretty gruesome end.’ Continue reading
