Demoni (Movie Trailer of The Week, April 19th, 2010)

The year 1985 started out like any other year during that decade. Ronald Reagan was sworn in for a second US Presidential term. Along the way Reagan made a book deal for $3 million. Video gamers took their playing to the next level with the Nintendo Entertainment System. The newspaper cartoon Calvin and Hobbes debuted in 1985. On August 31 in Los Angeles, serial killer Richard Ramirez was captured. Microsoft released Windows 1.0. Entertainment wise, LiveAid and Back To The Future was the talk of the town.

During this year, Dario Argento produced and co-wrote the film Demoni. Also internationally known under the title Demons, the film was actually directed by Argento protege Lamberto Bava.

Re-Animator (Movie Trailer of The Week, March 29th, 2010)

The 1985 started on a Tuesday, as The Cold Wars continued. The Discovery Channel debuts on cable television. Children and teens played with The Nintendo Entertainment System. On radio we had to hear again…and again…and yet again that annoying charity song “We Are The World.” This was followed by the Live Aid concerts which took place in Philadelphia and London. The proceeds from this event would raise over 50 million for famine relief in Ethiopia.

1985 saw the theatrical release of H.P. Lovecraft’s Re-Animator. This film was based on the H. P. Lovecraft story “Herbert West-Reanimator” and since has retained cult status.
