The ultimate Halloween party becomes the setting for a terrifying night of satanic slaughter when seven teenagers become trapped in a mansion filled with rampaging demons in this remake Kevin S. Tenney's influential 1988 horror classic. Everyone in New Orleans knows the dark story of Broussard Mansion, but none of the locals have dared set foot in the notorious estate...until now. Angela Feld has chosen Broussard Mansion as the setting for this year's annual Halloween bash.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"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."
‑ Brian Juergens,
"When you've missed the nuances of a lipstick-in-boob scene, you know you're lost."
‑ Josh Bell,
"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."
‑ Charlotte O'Sullivan, This is London
"Patience with the braindead script's predictability runs thin as the pacing slackens off and the contrived sickness continually fails to shock."
‑ Alan Jones, Radio Times
"It's a gaping cut above your normal formulaic remake fare."
‑ Tim Evans, Sky Movies
"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."
‑ Anton Bitel, Little White Lies
"Certainly inferior to the original Demons, the glossy remake nevertheless has a few shining moments before a case of the low-budget blahs comes to crash the party."
‑ Brian Orndorf,
"A load of overwrought nonsense in which the souls of seven twentysomethings are imperilled when they disturb the undead quietly mouldering in the basement."
‑ Marc Lee, Daily Telegraph
"As remakes of straight-to-video schlock goes, it's a reasonably entertaining watch."
‑ Kim Newman, Empire Magazine
"90 minutes of thirtysomethings playing teens, lesbian Elvira wannabes and Edward Furlong splattered with latex gore."
‑ Jamie Russell, Total Film
"Night of the Demons is far from great. But considering the truly awful, unwatchable direct-to-video horror titles that make their way to retail and rental shelves, it's easily among the best of the bunch."
‑ R. L. Shaffer, IGN DVD
"A considerably entertaining fast paced horror film you might just enjoy if you give it a chance..."
‑ Felix Vasquez Jr., Cinema Crazed
"It's machine-tooled for the horror fanbase: brash, slick, yucky -- by-the-numbers stuff."
‑ Peter Bradshaw, Guardian
"A pointless remake..."
‑ Roz Laws, Birmingham Post
