Hey there Los Angeles Fright fans! Time for another Friday Night Frights! (like us on Facebook, if you dare!)
Demons! This Friday, May 11, my cohort Sebastian O’Brien and I are pretty goddamn proud to be presenting Demons, a movie so meta and gonzo it manages to seem kooky even by Italian horror standards. As always, the screening will be at midnight @ The Cinefamily in Los Angeles.
Quoth the FNF power blurb:
Taking its cues from Sam Raimi’s The Evil Dead and ramping the madness up to 11, Demons pushes forward from the ‘80s Italian horror mold of basic giallo/slasher tropes to become a freaky, fucked-up funhouse of amazing grisly setpieces. Directed by Lamberto Bava (son of Mario Bava), and with a script written by maestro Dario Argento, Demons centers around a movie theater that’s screening a film about demons — during which the patrons become possessed by (you guessed it) demons! It’s meta-horror that pre-dates the meta-horror boom of the ‘90s/’00s, and frankly, it’s a million times more fun. Wacky characters, awesome monster make-up and gallons of grue abound, with its breakneck pace and non-stop gore gags making it a wild ride from frame one. A screening of this Satanic masterwork is rare indeed; we can’t promise you won’t get possessed, but we can promise you’ll love every sinful second!

I feel like this is fairly obvious, yet it apparently could stand to be more obvious: This screening is happening in Los Angeles. And it is happening on May 11, 2012.
