Demons in cinema

From 'Night of the Demon' to 'Night of the Demons', a 1980s horror classic. It was re-made in 2010 with Shannon Elizabeth as Angela, but I have not seen the remake. The original was terrifying.

This was another film that had been inspired by the concept of 'The Exorcist', Sam Raimi's "Evil Dead" films, and the Italian film-maker Dario Argento's film (with protege Lamberto Bava):  'Demons': the idea of demonic possession, with spectacularly gory and terrifying outcomes.
