I would say that english is what was most "intended" since these were made deliberately to be exported in english since the italian market was so small in comparison.

I watched demons right after I received it and never posted about it. It's...pretty terrible. The first half is pretty good and has a lot of great visuals, but then it starts rehashing itself, and then it goes totally off the rails with
[Show spoiler]the move into outside of the theater, where apparently some kind of postapocalyptic society has managed to form in the two hours since the demons started spreading in the theater.


The disc LOOKS incredible, it really shows off the crazy lighting and use of color. It's like a hacky Mario Bava/Dario Argento clone! Which I guess is just how people usually describe Lamberto. :P

My favorite thing about the movie was seeing the girl from Deep Red/What Have You Done to Solange/Who Saw Her Die/Night Child/Footprints on the Moon 10 years later. I thought I recognized that usher at first, and then was like IS THAT THE UBIQUITOUS CHILD STAR ALL GROWN UP?! and then confirmed it when I looked up the movie! Good times. She ended up being much more attractive than I'd have guessed, in a very bratty looking way.

I'm talking about the three levels of expensive in editions of that movie. Mondo had a really expensive version with an extra disc and some artwork or a fairly expensive one that I bought which I'd say was the "mid-tier" option which I think was like 45 bucks. Maybe I'm wrong and there wasn't a cheaper version, but I was thinking they had a NON-SPECIAL version or something too.

It's been a few weeks since I watched my Blu-ray of Demons, and I've been reminded of how much I used to like Motley Crue's "Save Our Souls."

Since my old cassette tape of Motley Crue's Theatre of Pain from my teenage years is long extinct, I picked up the CD at Best Buy earlier today.

Man, these Blu-rays can be expensive in more ways that one.

Even with the high price point I'm astonished these things are still around (well, the first one at least.)

The entire Demons soundtrack (both the songs selected AND the stuff Claudio Simonetti composed for it) is downright awesome top and bottom. I've actually made myself a CD-R containing all of the songs used in it and Claudio Simonetti's compositions. A really fun listen.

Too bad Demons 2 hocked that out for less interesting new wave/goth rock, which is actually pretty good in itself, but lacks the sheer awesomeness of the first film. Same goes for the movie itself, since Demons 2 is both less cool and, surprisingly, more mean spirited than its predecessor.

I am glad to own the steelbooks of both films, however, and I eagerly await my Tenebrae steelbook from Synapse to arrive in my mail box...once it ships out.

Yeah I am as well. These aren't perfect films by any means, but they're at least as good as everything that sold out in a day from Twilight Time. I can't help but wonder if exposure was initially part of the problem. (Never mind the fact that the cheaper editions undoubtedly impacted sales as well).
Wanted To Buy:
-Disney's The Rescuer's Double Feature Slip Cover -$10 Shipped
-Disney's The Many Adventures of Winnie the Pooh Slip Cover - $10 Shipped

One less copy of Demons is available. I said screw it and bit the bullet.
