Art imitating art is the basis of this demonic tale of a group of invited guests who are granted a free lunch in the form of a screening of a horror film that brings naturalism to life. Baited and penned in, this walled-in feeling quickly turns to screams and fear as those who are dead lust after the flesh of those living. The free lunch has turned full circle in the cinema of hell and it is only a question of time before the demons from the abyss are asking for second portions. Written by

AN EXECELLENT INTRO INTO THE WORLD OF EURO-SPLATTER FILMS
this is a fun, gory euro-horror film.
i'm a big fan of argento and the main reason this film and demons 2 work so well is because it is decidedly tame as far as story line is concerned.
very simple, people go to a screening of a film, and all gory hell breaks loose- 'nuff said.
i've been enthralled by almost everything dario argento has made, with the exception of "phantom of the opera" (with julian sands) and the one about bugs (i can't remember the title off-hand...). argento usually uses complex story lines along with gore to make his films work (which they often do in films like suspiria, tenebrae, opera, etc...). but this film is just balls-out blood and guts.
9/10 - great euro-gore
