Horror fans in San Antonio, Texas, were treated yet again to another quality exhibition of two of Italy's finest horror titles: Demons and Demons 2. Bloodthirsty Thursday's montly horror movie screenings has sliced its way into the consciousness of the SATX Horror Community and for good reason. Every month they bring quality horror to the big screen. Yet again, this month was no exception.
I thought it was cool that they were able to procure a Demons replica movie poster.
And, naturally, my Catholic consciousness felt a little guilty when I saw on this day there was actually a screening of a movie called 'Son of God'. What? Really?
Don't tell the Pope I went to see 'Demons' instead.
The flick was amazing, as usual. The movie was not ridiculous as much as it was a surreal nightmare, as all Italian horror movies seem to be (see 'The Beyond', Zombi 3, Suspiria, etc.).
Here's the trailer for 'Demons'. It's the story of two friends who were given two tickets to a movie by a mysterious figure. It's just as wild as the trailer makes it out to be.
'Demons 2' is just as wild. The Demon plague from the first movie has been cut off. But they return through wildly supernatural means that modern horror movies have ripped off (The Ring, anybody?).
One of the funniest elements from the first movie was the soundtrack, featuring Rick Springfield, Go West, Billy Idol, and Accept to name a few. You are going to crack up during the dirtbike demon fight with 'Fast as a Shark' in the background.
Getting to see these flicks back to back also treated us to an unexpected laugh as featured actors from the first film are recast in different roles in the second flick.
Fast Custom shirts was also in attendance again. A company out of Corpus Christi, Texas, these guys put out affordable and cool shirts of various designs. This time around, I picked up the Italian 'City of the Living Dead' shirt, and this commemorative 'Demons' tribute shirt.
All in all, it was another awesome night of beer, food, and horror with the Bloodthirsty Thursday crew. Incidentally, it was the BTT sponsor's bday party as well. Happy Bday, Kelly Warren Hammond. Thanks for bringing a monthly horror movie party to SATX!
And if you like horror, pick up this recent horror title from ZBFbooks.com.
