The Ultimate 80s Euro Horror Movie,
Amazon Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Demons 1 & 2 Steelbook [Limited Edition] [Blu-ray]  (Blu-ray)I am so glad that Arrow decided to release these on Blu-Ray. As a child of the 80s Demons is the ultimate 80s horror film for me. If you asked me to name a film that prefectly represents 80s horror it would be the first film that comes to mind. I still remember renting it as child on VHS and being absolutely blown away.
Yes it's cheesy, yes the dubbing and acting aren't the best, but it is incredibly original, stylish and iconic.
I never dreamed this would get a blu-ray release and whilst I love the usual Arrow limited edition packaging, the steelbook casing is pretty sexy and truly makes this a collectable item. I know people in some quarters are moaning that this doesn't include the Demons 3 mini comic, but to be honest I can live without that. I would have read it through when I first opened it and would probably never look at it again. For me, and from a limited edition collectable point of view this is the much more desirable product. People are knocking Arrow for it, but at least they are giving you the choice.
I cannot wait to get stuck into the extras as there was a multiple talent involved in the making of this movie.. Bava, Argento, Sachetti, Stivaletti Also keep an eye out for a couple of cameos from Italian horror/giallo regulars starlets Giovanni Frezza and Nicoletta Elmi. Highrise Productions extra's are always excellent and regular contributer Callum Waddell really knows his stuff.
This is the release I've been waiting for since buying my first Arrow release and cannot wait to turn the lights off and watch both back to back with a bucket of popcorn and a couple of friends. It will be just like old times, I just wont have to use the tracking button!
