Souls-like Demons 1 + 2

Demons (1985) and Demons 2 (1986) are not Souls-like, but there was a moment in Demons 2, where a group of bodybuilders is trying to escape a demon horde and they go down a spiral staircase.

If you played any of the Souls series, the phrase “a spiral staircase moment” most likely conjures an image of something, such as Havel the trashcan. I was going to try to make a GIF of the effect, but it didn’t work; however, in the process of trying to capture the staircase moment, I inadvertently got this photo, and it struck an even deeper chord with my experience of playing the game(s) with friends.

Demons (1985) – 2/4 – A horror movie that turns into reality and attacks the audience. There is a WWF-style demon-zombie vs. moviegoer brawl, a motorcycle & katana head-chopping scene outdone moments later by a helicopter head-chopping scene, and an apocalyptic ending where the preppers survive. Don’t say Nostradamus didn’t tell you so.

Demons 2 (1986) – 2/4 – Best watched hot off the heels of Demons (1985).

  1. The Church (1989) – 1/4 – Demons Souls deep cut.

    Damn you, Latria! And double damn you Prisoner Horde…
  2. The Church (1989) – 1/4 – …or, Elden Ring.

  1. So cool on the footnotes, The Church had higher ambitions but was still kind of trashy in its own way.

  2. Also, too, the sardine crackers. That’s how we roll for a meal sometimes.

    What’s wrong with that? Protein, good fats, wut? It’s a meal. Shit on the haters.
