NIGHT OF THE DEMONS Trilogy VHS and DVD Covers



Night Of The Demons is an American Comedy-horror franchise consisting of four films with the character of Angela remaining the only constant in all of the films in the franchise. I did not include the remake here because it was not released to VHS.

NIGHT OF THE DEMONS 1988:


The first 1988 film was written and produced by Joe Augustyn and directed by Kevin S. Tenney. The movie follows several teenagers as they attend a party thrown by school outcast Angela (played by Amelia Kinkade) and her best friend (scream queen Linnea Quigley) at an abandoned funeral home.


Released to VHS in 1989 by Republic Pictures Home Video in the US and by Cineplex Odeon Home Video in Canada. Anchor Bay Entertainment released to DVD in 2004; Scream Factory (under license from current rights holder MGM) released a Blu-ray/DVD combo pack collector's edition on February 4, 2014.

NIGHT OF THE DEMONS 2 1994:


Night of the Demons 2 was also written by Joe Augustyn (co-storied by James Penzi) but directed by Brian Trenchard-Smith and was released in 1994, with the story picking up six years after the end of the previous film. The story follows the character of Angela's younger sister Melissa as she and several of her fellow students visit Hull House on Halloween. Unlike its predecessor, which took place entirely inside of the funeral parlor, the sequel has demonic activity occurring outside of the limits of the property on the school's campus.

Released on home video in 1994 by Republic Pictures Home Video. Lionsgate released to DVD in 2007; Olive Films released a widescreen DVD and a first time Blu-ray release on February 19, 2013.

NIGHT OF THE DEMONS 3 AKA DEMON HOUSE 1997:


The 1997 sequel Night of the Demons 3 (also known as Demon House) was directed by Jim "James" Kaufman from a script by Kevin S. Tenney. This film moved away from the terror of the original for the sake of dark humor. The plot features several teens that find themselves on the run after a failed robbery attempt and try to hide out at Hull House.

The film was released in 1997 by Paramount Pictures and Republic Pictures in R-Rated and Unrated versions.
