5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch film making at its best, 2 Jun. 2010
This review is from: Demons 2 - The Nightmare Returns: Director's Cut [DVD] [1987] (DVD)
Ah, here we have a true classic. Think the zombies in 28 Days Later were tough? Well, these zombies (or "demons," they're basically the same in principle) can not only run fast but also are suddenly transformed in to trained gymnists upon being infected who are capable of somersaults and aerial acrobatics, as well as having acid blood (!) and being nigh on impossible to kill. I watched, glued to my chair, as one demon first survived an explosion and a fall from a height, then was beaten and impaled with a metal pole, and then finally came back again one last time to terrorise our heroes. I fully expected this demon to then get up again and need to be put through a grinder or trash compactor to finish it off once and for all -and even then I wouldn't be sure if it was really dead or just faking it. And that was just one demon!

The dubbing in this is pretty abominable from memory and the voice over on the tv sequence was cheesy, but given the cool effects and aggressive nature of the demons I'm willing to forgive just about anything that goes on in this film. There is one particularly cool scene where the demons eyes were lit up and glowing in the dark -you just don't get quality film making like that any more! And did I mention how tough the demons are -I was kept on the edge of my seat, teeth chattering, as two demons were run over by a car three times (3) -that's not a misprint, it really was three -and finally being squashed in to a wall before they would stay down. I wish every move was like this.

If you haven't seen it then you've got to get a copy of this movie. It's fast paced, has lots of jump-worthy moments and best of all it's violent. It's pure entertainment all the way through.
