Default 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.

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

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.

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.

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).

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.

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.

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

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