There are demons in da house, and FANGORIA has nabbed an exclusive clip from the upcoming Entertainment One remake of NIGHT OF THE DEMONS. Go below the jump to see what happens when bad boy Edward Furlong tries to clean up his act—and encounters a literal bloodbath!
Now that we whet your appetite, let us remind you that FANGORIA will host a free screening of director Adam Gierasch’s NIGHT OF THE DEMONS redux at the Cinema Village (22 East 12th Street, off University Place) on Friday, October 15 at 11:30 p.m. Gierasch co-wrote the new film with longtime partner Jace Anderson, the two having previously collaborated on AUTOPSY, TOOLBOX MURDERS, MOTHER OF TEARS, MORTUARY and the upcoming FERTILE GROUND. You can see the gruesome trailer for NIGHT OF THE DEMONS below. The updated DEMONS, due out on DVD October 26 from Entertainment One, follows a bunch of young party animals who spend Halloween night in a haunted mansion, turning into demons and mutilating themselves and their friends. The film boasts a hot cast led by 13 GHOSTS’ Shannon Elizabeth as the new Angela (that infernal troublemaker), with stunners like LAID TO REST’s Bobbi Sue Luther, FREDDY VS. JASON’s Monica Keena, TEXAS CHAINSAW MASSACRE: THE BEGINNING’s Diora Baird and THE HAZING’s Tiffany Shepis playing the wild girls who turn into wilder she-demons. TRAILER PARK OF TERROR’s Drac Studios provided the film’s eye-popping makeup FX and monsters. The original film’s Linnea Quigley has a cameo as well.

Gareth Jones of Dread Central called NIGHT OF THE DEMONS “a modern throwback to a simpler era of horror where boobs and blood were the main attraction,” while Steven West of The Horror Review said: “If you see only one movie this year featuring demonic anal sex…make it this one.” And Suspiriorum at Horrorview.com summed up NIGHT OF THE DEMONS as a “shamelessly trashy experience, but one which is solidly entertaining, and a rare remake which doesn’t shame the memory of its progenitor.”
