I fancied something different tonight, so I rewatched this one. This one grows on you after multiple viewings. Some of the imagery is really quite stunning, and the basic idea - though rather simplistic - isn't too bad. You can really see the connection with Demons. It is, in fact, essentially Demons set in a Church rather than a cinema, or block of flats. However, the icnonography of the Church adds some additional flavor to things. Also, Soavi's use of FX and gore are handled with a little more subtlety and flair than those earlier films. Failures are in the poor to not too bad dubbing, and to be honest it still drags a little too much for me at the start of the final thrid - there are just too many people of no interest trapped in the church. It oevrcomes it though with some cool setpieces. Keith Emerson of ELP fame, and for genre hounds from Argento's Inferno, serves up an even more bizarre and off-kilter soundtrack that really adds to the proceedings too. If that isn't enough, Radice - that old devil - hams it up as the most unlikely priest. Yeah - not bad this one. I've still not seen The Sect!
