"We create monsters in our minds. They don't exist."
23 April 2006 | by (Kentucky) – See all my reviews

Lamberto Bava's Demons III: The Ogre has nothing in common with his earlier films in this series. In fact, this film should have just forgone the Demons title because, just like Michele Soavi's The Church, this is not on the same level as the Demons films. The whole time I was watching this movie I was thinking this would be an okay film if they had just called it The Ogre. But by the finale I can't say this is on par with Bava's other works. It starts off decent and builds a certain atmosphere but it gets boring real quick. On top of that, the titular Ogre looked like a p*ssed-off William Shakespeare. I wish I were kidding. The only thing that shines in this movie is the music. Simon Bosell's goth-induced synth sound is always amazing, and this is no exception. Too bad it's wasted in this snoozefest. Bava and co-writer Dardano Sacchetti (who seemingly had a hand in writing every Italian horror film in the 80's) have had better luck in the past.
