    I'm surprised I couldn't find this poll anywhere as I always seem to link these two. Which of these two Evil Dead inspired films isyour fav? This is pretty much Sophie's choice for me.

    Hands down Demons for me. Most films would not beat it in a poll. I also typically like the Italian kind of film versus the US. That is saying a lot considering the American slasher defined my childhood.

    Demons is lots of fun but I'd go with Night of the Demons. It's an unforgettable one and classic for Halloween.

    Voted Demons, that's one wild movie.

    Night of the Demons is a fun movie but so hit or miss, inconsistent.

    Demons all the way :)

    Even though I still enjoy NOTD, it doesn't deliver the same awesome action and gore as Demons.
    Demons also has more interesting characters and a killer soundtrack :)

    I think I'd have to go Demons. Neither is a complete favorite, but I enjoy both quite a bit. Demons has a bit more rewatchability, I guess...

    Apart from being horror fun, I donĀ“t these two have very much in common.

    Really, Demoni? It involves a group of people being trapped, escape attempts, demons, demonic possession, a cursed object, semi-surreal goingson, and people being nasty toward each other. There's no question the chronological former influenced the latter.

    Actually the original script for NIGHT OF THE DEMONS - originally titled HALLOWEEN PARTY was written in 1983. The film was picked up by Paragon Arts in 1987 and re-worked to fit the budget.

    The writer was a fan of slasher films, but didn't like the idea of a killer running around with a mask knocking off teens as he felt many films were already doing that so he went with the protagonists becoming the antagonists through demonic possession. Ultimately he wanted to take THE EXORCIST and combine it with FRIDAY THE 13TH. It would have been kind of interesting if he was influenced by a film released two years later...

    Only seen Night of the Demons once and didn't love it, Demons is one of my favorite Italian horror movies ever :D

    NOTD all the way and twice on Tuesday. I like Demons, but there is no comparison imo.
