Added DiffLines:

*DownerEnding:[[spoiler: George and Cheryl escape from the theater after dispatching all of the demons and the mysterious mask man, only to find out that the city is over run with demons (one had escaped early in the movie). George and Cheryl manage to escape with a family and as the credits roll, we see Cheryl has turned into a demon and is quickly shot to death as George looks on in shock]].


Added DiffLines:

*Jerkass: The older husband in every scene he is in acts like a complete asshole. No surprise that he is one of the first people to get killed.


Added DiffLines:

*TooDumbToLive: The patrons in the movie theater hear noise in the background and assume it is help coming (it was actually the gang of punks who ran into the theater to hide from the police). So they immediately start to break the barricade they had made despite George, Cheryl and their friends warning them not to. By doing this, all they did was give the demons a chance to break through and attack them.

Kathy and Cheryl have received free tickets to a new horror movie. Once inside, though, what happens on the screen starts to happen in the theater, after a fellow theater-goer cuts her face on a ceremonial mask on display in the lobby, and before they know it, the cinema is over-run with man-eating demons. Produced by Creator/DarioArgento, and directed by Creator/LambertoBava, son of [[MarioBava Mario]].

The sequel, released in 1986, takes place a few years after the events of the first film. An apartment complex is taken over by demons after a girl is attacked by one that emerges from a documentary about said demons. The film then follows some of the tenants who attempt to survive.

* ChekhovsGun: The mask, supposedly found in the tomb of UsefulNotes/{{Nostradamus}} with a prophecy about "the coming of demons" after being unearthed. Needless to say it doesn't take long for it to fire, though.
