Demons III: The Big Hairy Dude in a Cheap Mask
6 June 2007 | by (The land of the Bunyips) – See all my reviews

A pretty blond horror fiction author and her family rent a house in Italy as a getaway. I guess being a horror writer is really lucrative, because this is some vacation home--the mansion looks like it would have its own zip code! It's all good-times until she goes down to the basement and realizes that it's the same horrific place that haunted her nightmares as a child. This "entry" in the "Demons" series isn't just another variation of the first film, which is refreshing. Apparently this Lamberto Bava film originally aired on television, but it doesn't really have a tacky 80s made-for-TV feel. It's only a sequel in name, and instead of demons possessing humans, we have a big man in a hairy mask (The Ogre?) terrorizing the family and their friends. Not a bad movie, but it gets sillier as it progresses. Still, I enjoyed it more than "Black Demons" and maybe even "Demons 2."
