THE GATE & Lamberto Bava's DEMONS
THE GATE (PG-13, 1987, 85 min)
After an old tree is removed from the ground, three children accidentally release a horde of nasty, pint-sized demons from the hole in a suburban backyard. What follows is a classic battle between good and evil as the three kids struggle to overcome a nightmarish hell that is literally taking over the Earth! Starring Stephen Dorff and Kelly Rowan. And best of all, it's got one of the best scares we've ever seen in a PG-13 rated flick: Altogether now, "Construction worker in the wall!"
Lamberto Bava's DEMONS (R, 1986, 88 min)
They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and cities will be your tombs! From the minds of Dario Argento and Lamberto Bava comes the horrific splatter film classic! A strange masked man offers tickets to a horror movie sneak preview at the mysterious cinema. When a patron is accidentally scratched by a prop displayed in the lobby, she transforms into a flesh-ripping demon! One by one, the audience members mutate into horrible creatures hell-bent on destroying the world. Can anyone escape this gory orgy of terror? Features an amazing soundtrack of 80s rock/heavy metal Billy Idol, Scorpions, Motley Crue, Accept, Saxon and more!
