On the night of Halloween, 10 teens decide to go to a party at an abandoned funeral parlor. "Hull House", rumored to be built on an evil patch of land & underground stream, is the place. While starting the party, the teens gather around a big mirror to perform a seance...BIG MISTAKE. They awaken some evil force and find themselves trapped and taken over one by one. Now it's a battle for who can survive and cross over the stream before going to hell....Written by
This film is the inspiration for horror thrash metal band Hull House fronted by actor Zach Martin under the name Zachy Gorehound. See more »
In the convenience store, the repeated sounds from the arcade machine are actually from the Atari 2600 home version of Pac-Man. See more »
Those noises we heard, there were three of them, and that awful stink, and then the chill!
Well it's not cold now, must've been a draft.
Well, maybe somebody did come in.
The odor's gone too.
But we ALL experienced them! The noise, the stink, and the chill! They're all signs of demonic infestation.
Demonic watchamacallit. I mean come on, ol' Ange here is just trying to put the ooooga booga on us, okay?

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.
After much pondering, I finally popped this flick in recently and I have to say, I was surprised at how good it was. "Night of the Demons" is a classic 80's fright flick, complete with good scares, decent gore, and freaky chicks dancing to bad music.
A group of punks go to an old, run down house to party it up and they soon find out that the place is haunted by an evil presence. One by one they are possessed and turn to the dark side, mauling and killing each other off. It's pretty rad.
The special effects are good in this one. When the punks turn into demons, they are pretty damn hideous.
Recommended for the 80's horror fan.
7 out of 10, kids.
