John's Horror Banana-nanza Episode Twenty-Three: Demons

Lamberto Bava worked with lots of Italian directors like Deodato on Cannibal Holocaust and Dario Argento of Suspiria. He and Argento put this neat little monster movie together, which is about a movie inside a movie, or something like that.

Two girls get tickets to a special screening in a theatre called The Metropol. There's a bunch of dumb goofballs inside, and also the big screen's first semi-heroic pimp in horror movie. One of his bitches gets scratched by a mysterious mask in the lobby, and suddenly, all the weird stuff happening on screen happens in the theatre.

The transformation scenes are incredible. And it's hard to get a grasp on who you should root for. Everyone seems to have flaws, and almost everyone dies, because, conveniently, there's no way out. All the doors are gone.

There are scenes where the crowd tries to break down the doors with chairs. However, the theatre seats look sort of like, well, car seats. Most of this movie had me scratching my head, but it was nothing short of entertaining, nonetheless.

Cut to some British punks driving around, doing coke out of, get this, a Coke can, and listening to the great Billy Idol's White Wedding. Awesome. They stop at the theatre to get away from cops, then decide to go in. I'm not sure how they got in if no one can get out, but now they're now trapped with all the mayhem.

The characters meet predictable ends, and the ending involves a helicopter. I have to insist you sit through the credits in this movie. The payoff is awesome. So there you have it. There's really nothing more to it than that. Lots of great effects, some sweet 80's rock music, and transformation scenes that will blow your mind. Ninety minutes of gold, in my opinion.

      Yeah. It's got a (sort of) original setup, but predictable plot and the death scenes and soundtrack are neat. It's fun, pretty much.
