Demons 4K 1985 Ultra HD 2160p
Cheryl's girlfriend and her friend receive an invitation from a strange man in the subway to show a new horror film about demons, the invasion of which was allegedly predicted by Nostradamus. In the lobby of the cinema, one of the visitors tries on a mask from a mannequin for a joke, and is injured by something sharp inside the mask. What is happening on the screen is strangely reminiscent of what actually happened before the session - the same mask and one of the heroes was hurt by it. Just at the moment when a young man on the screen reads an excerpt from the book of Nostradamus, which tells that everyone who puts on a mask will turn into a demon, the injured visitor becomes ill, and she goes to the restroom and turns into a demon there.

Review 4K Movie

Jokes aside. The lone shooters have safely exhausted the cartridges, the hypertrophied sharks have been successfully caught, and the horror master can throw off the annoying mask of John Old Jr. and become the former Lamberto Bava again. Having played with cheap productions, the Italian director had to go under the wing of Dario Argento to create a film worthy of being a calling card. Bava from sight has created something completely new in the usual genre, which not only distanced him as much as possible from the previous "Macabrew" delights, but also allowed him to throw out unspent energy from his heart in a specific concentrate. From now on, they are supposed to be afraid not sitting on the bed or hiding in a wardrobe, but on the run - to pray, to save themselves, to hide from the almost invulnerable carriers of ancient evil, who have found an opportunity to penetrate into a quiet burgher society. The prophecy of Nostradamus materialized grotesquely in a restored Berlin cinema, and in one not at all quiet night curious visitors will have to shout a lot.

The joint creation of Lamberto Bava and Dario Argento was partly unlucky with the era - if the "Demons" came out ten years later, and the cult "From Dusk Till Dawn" might not exist, and the fame of Robert Rodriguez would have gone to the Appenin address. However, the age of the picture only adds color to the dynamic production, and when fans of climbing the tombs from the cinema hall get to the book of Nostradamus, an imaginary stop-cock flies and the bloody wheel picks up speed. The demons, performed in grotesque style, are the director's mockery of human curiosity as a deadly trait. Bava's monsters are much more terrible and ugly than their "colleagues" from the projector screen and send greetings to all fans of zombie horror with their hungry growls. Unlike the early films by George Romero, Bava's painting relies not on human fear, but on the intoxicating feeling of imminent death. The director does not prohibit fighting, hiding and even fighting, but with each new mutilated victim, the flame of growing terror only flares up.

In the midst of an inexplicable incident, there is no time for dating and making connections, which is why Lamberto diverts attention from the personalities of the opposing demons. The girl Cheryl, declared as the central heroine, is not at all a key figure, “scream queen” or the only survivor. However, without imposing tight bonds on his heroes, Bava reveals the character of each through the degree of his fear. Creepy monsters are able to scare anyone, an ugly fanged mouth that spews green muck is a picture for the personification of horror, but people similar in their fear are able to resist the threat only until the moment they join the crowd. The panic flying like a comet through the audience inevitably turns people into a fearful herd - the director did not even have to exaggerate the scenes of setting up barricades or waiting in vain for help. In a funny way, cheeky personalities, complete scum and drug addicts are much better at navigating critical situations than decent guys and girls. However, courage in "Demons" is a perishable thing, and if she did not leave her master in a fight with one monster, this does not mean that it will remain in the confrontation with five.

Lamberto Bava generously fills the film with symptoms of horror, but does not forget about a peculiar aesthetics - shots with an impressive gang of monsters walking, whose eyes are able to burn through the thickest curtain, form a unique style that will remain relevant several decades later. There is no place for mercy and contemplation under conditions oozing blood, that is why the director's bet on visual effects is so obvious: more open throats, cut off heads, torn eyes, scratched faces and scraps of meat - and no unnecessary drama is needed. Demons cannot be reproached for their excessive charm, and the entourage they have chosen is noble: in a cursed cinema there can be no maddening silence, it is replaced by downhole rock accompaniment, which seems to help weed out the weak and vulnerable. Prisoners crawling on their bellies flicker here and there, their trembling is almost visibly transmitted to the screen, but this night the whole light of numb spotlights converges not on people, but on those who have been waiting too long for their time.

The deadly performance began with a book, and even though the hapless grave diggers did not read the Necronomicon at all, this whole film is very similar to a creepy tale. Demons are repeatedly called tools of evil along the way, but Lamberto Bava has others. The dusty pages of the tome, the cold shine of a disgusting mask in the lobby of the cinema, the audience rows where fans of private screenings settled down - a faithful kaleidoscope of attributes, without which the son of an outstanding horror maker would hardly have truly inherited this title. Demons so different in their first impression are in fact united into a single evil, which established a beacon for the entire future career of the Italian director. At a conscious age, you will not tremble from the "Demons", but you are guaranteed to enjoy their terrifying, always hungry, earnestly growling and gurgling green spray of essence. The horror classic cannot be taken as a serious or, even worse, psychological film - it meets completely different needs. The transformation of innocent cinema goers into bloodthirsty creatures is the apotheosis of director's art, highly valued in narrow circles. "Demons" came to a rash call in an era not fully ready for the use of such a product, but that is why they are valuable thirty years later, that they do not develop familiar patterns for the hundredth time, but form new ones. The fusion of producer and director turned out to be a rare example of one hundred percent hit on all targets, the main one of which is the test of time.
