Demons 0+

(Dèmoni), Lamberto Bava, I 1985, Italian version / English and Czech subtitles, 88 min

Beware of watching horror films, for it’s not just The Tingler, which can wreak havoc in your movie theatre. In 1985 Italian horror auteur Dario Argento teamed up with director Lamberto Bava to make Demons, a gory, nightmarish horror film set almost entirely within the Metropol, a huge, cathedral-like Berlin cinema showing an invitation-only screening of a rather lame slasher film. But the cheap scares on the Metropol's screen are child's play compared to the horrors which soon emerge to lay hold of the unsuspecting filmgoers. And true to Frank-N-Furter’s motto „Don’t dream it – be it!“ we are returning Demons from worn videotapes to where they truly belong – to the darkened cinema, from where it’s not so easy to pop out to the loo, especially when the doors are locked and from the outside ominous sounds resembling heavy metal riffs are heard.
