Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"A movie that can support the descriptions "awesome!" and "stupid!" in equal measure."
‑ Tim Brayton, Antagony & Ecstasy
"Demons is probably Lamberto's best film, not because it approaches Mario's work, but because it's so ludicrously entertaining."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"A guy on a motorcycle careening through a cinema, wielding a katana blade and lopping off heads to the sound of 'Killers on the Attack.' It doesn't get any better than this."
‑ Widgett Walls, Needcoffee.com
"A classic party movie that you have to watch with friends and a load of beer because you will not be bored at all..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's repetitive and borderline pretentious, without the over-the-top looniness that distinguishes the better Italian splatter."
‑ Rob Gonsalves, eFilmCritic.com
"...the film's performances, dialogue, and storyline all [suffer] from an unmistakable vibe of incompetence."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"It doesn't make a lot of sense, but it's not wanting for gore and creepiness."
‑ Ken Hanke, Mountain Xpress (Asheville, NC)
