      Nigel Floyd Time Out Rated: 3/5 Jan 22, 2013 Full Review Empire Magazine Rated: 2/5 Jan 22, 2013 Full Review Charlotte O'Sullivan London Evening Standard Edward Furlong plays a depressed, catastrophe-hit loser who goes to a party in a haunted house and is duly pursued by demons. You feel the part wasn't much of a stretch. Rated: 1/5 Sep 22, 2010 Full Review Philip French Observer (UK) Fairly decent, extremely bloody... Nov 22, 2019 Full Review Brian Juergens CampBlood.org A handful of recognizable faces, fair amount of ghoulishness, and peppy can-do attitude can't match the cheese-fueled charm of the faulted-but-fun original. Rated: 5/10 Jan 6, 2011 Full Review Anton Bitel Projected Figures there are characters about whom we never care, incidents which never grip, and only the occasional moments of creative grand guignol ever raise the viewer's pulse.

      Kyomoto Apesar de não ter visto o original , gostei desse remake mas as atuações são sofriveis. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 08/27/23 Full Review Sean S A very good remake of the 1980's original. People sometimes give the original a hard time and call it cliche', but in the 1980's it wasn't. This one is better than most of the stuff out there these days. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 07/23/23 Full Review Craig H Pretty people wear sexy Halloween costumes to a haunted house and get possessed, slaughtered, etc. No one is very likeable, the story isn't real defined, but the movie is slick and the special effects help make it work. It's not the original, which was, actually, original for the time, but this update is almost worth the 90 or so minutes. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 10/11/22 Full Review robert p A Horrible old horror movie that fails in every step it takes - note not recommended thus my *1 & 1/2" star rating! Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Hot women and gory demons. Silly storyline, but then aren't they all? Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member Take everything you loved about the original "Night of the Demons", remove 90% of it, and that leaves Linnea Quigley bending over in ballerina skirt. And that's the only appeal of this bland, badly-acted, boring, cheesy remake, because Linnea shows up to do the same thing again in a brief cameo (no pun intended) and then promptly disappears to allow the younger primary cast members to play through the story she did so much better when she was their age. There's none of the charm of the original here. It's just crass and stupid from start to finish. Edward Furlong is even slumming it here, and he's fricking Edward Furlong. Shannon Elizabeth was way too good for this, and yet she's completely wasted in this film (and I mean she's utilized poorly in the story, not that she had to be drunk in order to do it). Everyone else is a "who?" that you'll likely stop caring about moments after you meet them because it's quite clear you're likely never going to see them again, in any movies, with perhaps the exception of Diora Baird whose career is basically about two things, and little else. (There's a reason WhatCulture ranked her the #3 actor who ruins any film she's in and referred to her as "film and TV's most popular rent-a-cleavage.") If you make it through the whole film, you're a stronger person than I. The true horror is that they spent $10 million to make this turkey, and it rightfully only earned $64,400 at the box office worldwide. At $10 a ticket, that's 6,440 people who showed up to see this in person. I'm willing to bet that to this day every one of them still pauses every once in a while, gets this feeling like they've had something stolen from them, and then shakes their head and goes on with their day not knowing what it was, exactly, that left this mental scar on their grey matter. Sadly, though, this wasn't the worst movie I've seen in the last decade or so. That honor goes to "Wonder Woman 1984", which is so bad that I'd consider watching an even worse remake of this horrible remake of "Night of the Demons" before watching Wonder Woman 1984 again. Still, "Night of the Demons" 2009 is the filmic equivalent of dipping your foot into the pool to see if it's warm enough to swim, and pulling it back suddenly because you realize the pool is full of warm bull semen. It's not actually going to hurt you, but you'll feel really gross if you go in there, and you definitely won't have any fun. One and one-half stars. The one star is for Linnea's cameo, because she's Linnea fricking Quigley. The half star is for the rest of the movie. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Read all reviews
