They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.

 

Cheryl is traveling on the Berlin subway when a mysterious man starts to follow her. It turns out that all he wanted to do was to give her a free ticket to a local movie screening at a newly renovated cinema.

She decides to go to the screening with her friend Kathy, but their evening will not be a quiet and safe experience at the movie theater. Instead reality starts to imitate the horror film that is being shown on the big screen and the entire theater gets infested by bloodthirsty demons.

Demons is a collaboration between Lamberto Bava, who directed it and Dario Argento who produced the film and also co-wrote the script together with Bava, Dardano Sacchetti and Franco Ferrini. Some Italian horror films of the 80’s might have been accused of putting the plot secondary to the violence and great visuals and if there ever was any need for proof of that being true, then Demons would be a great choice to back up that claim.
