Demons (1985)

  • Urbano Barberini
  • Natasha Hovey
  • Karl Zinny
One of the most energetic, entertaining, and Hollywood-friendly films of the '70s/'80s Italian horror Renaissance, Demons is also one of the few to feature major black roles, in this case a pimp (Bobby Rhodes) and a hooker (the redundant Geretta Geretta). How refreshing! It's good to know that Italy has stereotypes too.
