Night of the Demons is a horror movie from 1988 that tells the story of a group of teenagers who decide to have a Halloween party at an abandoned funeral home. The party goes horribly wrong when the teenagers accidentally awaken a group of demons from hell who possess them one by one. The movie starts with a group of teenagers, including Angela (played by Cathy Podewell), throwing a Halloween party at an abandoned funeral home. The place has a dark history, which the teens are all aware of, but they decide to party there anyway. As the night goes on, strange things begin to happen, and the group discovers that they are not alone in the house.

As the party gets underway, we meet the other teenagers who are attending. They include Stooge (played by Hal Havins), Sal (played by Billy Gallo), Suzanne (played by Linnea Quigley), and Rodger (played by Alvin Alexis). Stooge is a troublemaker who loves to play pranks, while Sal is the resident tough guy. Suzanne is the seductress of the group, and Rodger is the nerdy, sensitive one.

As the night progresses, the group begins to explore the house and discovers a room filled with candles and an eerie incantation written on the wall. Stooge, being the prankster that he is, decides to read the incantation out loud. This action awakens a group of demons who possess the teenagers one by one, turning them into demonic monsters.

The remainder of the movie is a gruesome battle for survival, as the teens fight for their lives against the demons that have infested their bodies. The fight scenes are graphic and intense, with a high body count, as the teens try to find a way to escape the possessed funeral home.

Throughout the movie, there are moments of tension and fear that build to a heart-racing finish. The special effects are impressive, considering the movie's low budget, and the makeup used to create the demons is genuinely terrifying. The actors all give great performances and convincingly portray the terror of being possessed by demons.

The film has some fantastic scenes that still hold up today, such as the iconic lipstick scene, where Suzanne uses her lipstick to seduce Stooge before turning into a demon and killing him. Another great scene is the dance sequence, where Angela seduces Rodger while possessed, and both go on to become some of the movie's most memorable demons.

Night of the Demons was a financial success upon its release in 1988 and has since become a cult classic in the horror genre. The movie has remained popular over the years and even spawned two sequels. Its popularity can be attributed to its memorable characters, terrifying visuals, and intense, gruesome scenes.

In conclusion, Night of the Demons is a classic horror movie that delivers on the gore and scares. It may not be for the faint of heart, but for those who enjoy a good horror movie, it's a must-see. The film's memorable characters, terrifying makeup effects, and well-executed scares have cemented it as a cult classic in the horror genre.

Night of the Demons is a 1988 horror movie with a runtime of 1 hour and 30 minutes. It has received moderate reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 6.1.
