dirty thirty: demons, thar be demons!
NIGHT OF THE DEMONS
A remake. Hmm...
The original came out something like twenty years ago and was a pretty innocuous movie. It had some blood and boobs and sexy chicks in Halloween costumes and didn't amount to much other than a nice diversion. It was fun, and always fun to see again, but it certainly never set the world on fire.
And now we have a remake that's pretty much the same. These demons resurrect at a Halloween party and they need to possess seven folks in order to bring hell to earth. Several of the seven fall quick, leaving only three to try and survive until dawn, at which point, the demons will lose and everything will be over.
If you're looking for a movie with some blood, boobs and sexy chicks in Halloween costumes, then you've come to the right place. This remake is the same as the original, with some updated effects that help but also some modern filmmaking drawbacks that hurt. All in all, I'd say it's a push between this and the original. And if that's the case, might as well see the old one.
Besides, that one has Linnea Quigley in it. This one doesn't.
