Lamberto Bava’s exhilarating masterpiece of gore and terror brings true horror to the big screen, as a group of cinemagoers find themselves trapped in a late night screening, where all hell is literally about to break loose.

Fabulously gory and entertaining, Demons is the film of the 1980s Italian horror cycle that consistently races to the top of people’s all-time favourites: this is what you get when you team director Lamberto Bava up with producer Dario Argento – an unforgettable ride into chaos that’ll put you off going to the cinema again for life! Face chewing, body slashing, skin bubbling and demonic possession all combine in this self-knowing exercise in pure crowd-pleasing fun.
