This cheese is some scary Limburger!
Tenney must have taken notes and memorized the Evil Dead movies because he comes out of the box with a scary high camp bit of cinema. I rented this one expecting to laugh, or scorn... but ended up genuinely horrified. Night of the Demons appeals on all fronts... ;) As a woman of sound mind and character, I am not ashamed of admitting to a bunch of strangers that this piece of shlock scared the livin' bejaysus out of me.

Critic Reviews

Did You Know?


According to actress Linnea Quigley, the house used in the film had very little dressing done to it, as it was in pretty bad shape at the time. Many of the items, furniture and decor was authentic to the original building.


Frannie: Oh Max, I don't bend that way.


In the final escape scene, Roger and Judy scale the high wall by grabbing the barbed wire running along it. When Roger falls over the wall, we see no visible means of scaling the wall from the outer side, yet he is somehow able to climb back up to the top to rescue Judy.

Alternate Versions

An "Unrated" version is available on videocassette and DVD in the United States. The following scenes included in the unrated version were cut from the theatrical release to earn an MPAA rating of "R" rather than an "X":

  • The scene in which Angela bites off Stooge's tongue is a few seconds longer with a little bit more blood.
  • When Suzanne gouges out Jay's eyes, the shot lingers slightly longer, exposing more gore.
  • The close up shot of the razor blade ripping from the old man's throat is slightly extended with more gore. Additional scenes, cut from the R-rated version for content or running time, include:
  • In the convenience store scene at the beginning of the unrated version, Linnea Quigley's character asks the two male clerks if they have "Sour Balls". In the R rated version, she simply walks past them, and out of the store.
  • In the unrated version, the party scene is a little longer with more exposition.
  • There are substantially more shots of Angela floating through the hallway.
  • For reasons still unknown, the giant demon head that appears over Hull House at the end of the film has animated glowing red eyes in the unrated version, but does not in the R-rated theatrical cut.
