Demons Special Edition Box Set

3

Lamberto Bava's lunatic Demons remains the Napalm Death of the zombie genre, flinging a menagerie of gonna-dies into a cinema bursting with highly contagious zomboids. And that really is it, Bava pulsing up a visual cocktail of blaring colours, dry ice and milkshake gore. Wilfully incoherent and soaked through with deus ex machina get-outs (the hero suddenly notices that the foyer comes customised with a handy motorbike and Samurai sword), it's shrill, frizzily '80s and totally clagnificent. Unlike Demons 2, in which said hyper-zombies contaminate the residents of a hi-tech skyscraper by, er, bursting out of a TV set. It's JG Ballard's High-Rise wearing a butcher's apron.
