Who remembers the interview we did a few months back with “DAY OF THE DEAD: DESERTION” scribe Stefan Hutchinson regarding his smash-hit project with video distributor Arrow Video? For those of you who need a refresher course, Stefan told us that if things went well with “DESERTION” and the fans came out, that the scribe would be doing more stories based around othe fan favorites. Well you delivered, and now Stefan, Keating, and Jeff Zornow are making good on their word as the creative team are again paired up by Arrow to take on Dario Argento’s “DEMONS”! Beyond the break you can get all the details on the special edition DVD release, the specs, and even a 4 page ‘teaser trailer’ for the new original 2 part comic book to be packaged with the release aptly titled, “DEMONS 3″!

DEMONS

“Live and direct, straight from HELL!”

Lamberto Bava and Dario Argento bring you THE Gonzo Horror movie of the 1980s with Demons, a frenzied slice of gore heavy shock cinema that gives up on logic and instead assaults the screen with a riot of X-Rated violence, face chewing Zombies and pounding Heavy Metal.

In a mysterious cinema, an audience are watching a brutal horror flick when the horror rips out of the screen, unleashing a swarm of slathering Demons who are intent on spreading their evil plague across the globe.

Time to tool up and take no prisoners… The Demons are coming!
