Night Of The Demon (1980)
 
How about Night Of The Demon (one of the official DPP 39).

The 1992 Vipco video was heavily cut (1 min 41 secs). If they had resubmitted the full version in 2001/2 it would have passed uncut without problems. Alas they simply re-released the cut one.

This would be a real winner for Shameless as this doesn't seem to be available uncut anywhere at the moment.

Yeah, it would be nice to see this one out there uncut. Only ever seen the old cut Vipco version but i thought it was a hoot. Especially that scene where the poor guy in the sleeping bag gets swung around the monsters head. :D

Is there any news on the rights to Vipco titles, now they've (deservedly) gone under? If it's up for grabs, than this is a must. THere's a fair few other good titles in Vipco's hands in need to a decent release as well.

vipco 8th March 2008 11:49 PM

VIPCO have the rights to some cracking titles including Night of the DEMON that i'd love to see released in a quality print.

vincenzo 9th March 2008 12:04 PM

This would have passed uncut in 2001 had Vipco submitted the uncut print rather than re-releasing the cut 1994 print (they did the same with Pranks). :(

There's a pretty big demand for this title at the moment as it isn't legally available anywhere in it's complete form.

vipco 9th March 2008 10:58 PM

Night of the Demon would sell very well if it was re-released in the UK and would definitely pass uncut.
I think the version of Pranks that VIPCO released here was the cut 'R' American release. They should have submitted an uncut version as I dont think the bbfc would have had any problems passing it.

vincenzo 9th March 2008 11:16 PM

The version of Pranks released by Vipco in 1992 was cut by 10 secs by the BBFC (the drill murder). Alas the version they released on DVD in 2001 was the same print. The full version would definitely have been passed if they'd submitted it.

Apparently the U.S DVD is exactly the same print as the cut U.K one (to the point where it's probably a bootleg release, even down to the Vipco skulls on the cover).

vipco 26th March 2008 09:00 AM

I am a member of another horror site and have been posting Shameless's releases and while most weren't that fussed on buying UK releases , nearly all would buy Night of the Demon if it came out in the UK uncut.

vincenzo 26th March 2008 10:39 AM

The film itself is absolutely ludicrous in parts but it's picked up quite a cult following. Amateurish to say the least though once it's on you can't take your eyes off it. http://shameless-films.com/forums/im...es/biggrin.gif

The double stabbing of the 2 girls and the cyclist's tallywhacker being ripped off are just unforgettable.

Angel 26th March 2008 10:43 AM

I thought the cabin massacre at the end was a highlight, especially the way it was filmed in slow motion.

vincenzo 26th March 2008 10:47 AM

Definitely. There's giblets asunder in that scene. :)

It's slightly better (and more serious - ish) than Don't Go In The Woods but they're both as daft as each other. The UK DVD of DGITW is a superb extras-crammed release, considering the film is so abysmal.

vipco 26th March 2008 11:50 AM

Do you think it will ever get a decent re release.? (NOTD)

vincenzo 26th March 2008 11:55 AM

Very hard to say really. Hopefully it will but I thought it would have been released long before now. Zone Horror showed it fully uncut though the quality was pretty much VHS standard.

All that's (officially) around at the moment is the heavily cut Vipco release. :(

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 1st April 2008 08:04 PM

I've got an uncut ntsc dvd release (passable quality)...uncut the film is superb:cool:This would sell by the shitload Almar;)the fan base for this one is huge!

vipco 2nd April 2008 10:06 AM

Your right Reaper, over at another horror fansite I am a member of its the most asked about film.

vincenzo 2nd April 2008 02:27 PM

It would be a Shameless exclusive too. The film isn't legally available uncut anywhere in the world.

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 2nd April 2008 05:54 PM

What do you reckon Almar?......We guys reckon this is the one for 'this time next year Almar you'll be a millionaire'!:D

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 2nd April 2008 06:01 PM

Guys and gals,let's get together and badger ol Almar into this one....it worked over at abuk with Marc and bloodbath at the house of death:D....Are you ready Almar?:jest:

I've got this vince m8,the print ain't much better than Vipco's,but it's fully uncut....

Almar@Cult Labs 2nd April 2008 07:25 PM

Sadly none of these titles would ever make me a millionaire :(

However bring it on with Night of the Demon harrassment as I'll pass it right on. I'm already on the case but of course if lots and lots of people start to ask well it's all fuel to the fire so bring it on! If we get it you can all help with the sleeve and so on!

Wow I didn't know that, Reaper. I haven't seen this version but I was told it was a direct port of the cut Vipco release (minus the head drilling).

Angel 3rd April 2008 06:15 AM

Yes I'm surprised too.

ecc 3rd April 2008 08:12 AM

I love how the anthropologist relates mysterious events that have happened in the exacts spots where they have stopped - with gory flashbacks attributing the incidents to the beast - and then he says "Okay, let's get some sleep now."

Peter Neal 3rd April 2008 05:06 PM

Very true!:jest:

Thinking of this, it's somewhat amazing how some censors completely seem to miss out on the humour (intentional or not:D) these flicks provided.:p

Well, nowadays I'd assume they're a lot more open to regard our faved cheapo exploiters for what they are...at least in the case of the BBFC.

Ah, yes! Not to forget: Put me down for a copy of "Night of the Demon" on a yellow Shameless disc, too!!!!!!:popcorn:

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 3rd April 2008 07:17 PM

iT'S A MUST ALMAR..........WE'RE ALL DESPERATE :headbang::box::cuss:

Almar@Cult Labs 4th April 2008 08:09 PM

Some heartfelt stuff here guys. The challenge now is to get some more people along here to stake their interest. The more people the more I can argue the case to the guy holding the purse-strings!

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 7th April 2008 06:29 PM

Ask mr morris how DEATH SHIP sold m8,the demand for that was immense,but would be dwarfed in comparison to NOTD...;)

Hey! I think Shameless should release Night Of The Demon!! :rolleyes: :D

The Reaper Man@Cult Labs 15th April 2008 07:34 PM

What gave you that impression mate?:rolleyes::D

gore64 22nd April 2008 06:42 PM

Can't say I was ever that impressed by Night of the Demon. I did feel quite lucky to come across the Iver pre cert in the local Exchange and Mart when the film was otherwise unavailable. I imagine it would sail past the BBFC now though, and would be a good item for Shameless to pick up.

vincenzo 22nd April 2008 09:22 PM

Yes the original BBFC cuts list was pretty heavy but it would fly through now.

Killer Meteor 25th April 2008 10:18 AM

I'd buy it!

siccoyote 25th April 2008 09:48 PM

I don't know anything about this film aside from the description in Art of the Nasty, but I might buy it, I got it confused with Night of the Demons earlier

Simon 27th April 2008 06:46 PM

Put me down for a copy
