Who shall be Demoner? Demonest? Demon to the 10th Power? Demon²?

.
It has been an unspoken mini-quest of mine to defeat Ramen, Robots and Red Sauce's resident heresy, Drunketh, ever since it was revealed that he was in possession of one of the coolest DVD sets ever produced. You see, Drunketh has the highly prized Japanese DVD Box of Lamberto Bava's Demons and Demons 2 with the Demons mask replica from Imagica/SPO Entertainment. Seen here, this release was ridiculously limited, and shortly went the way of the dodo. I never snagged a copy myself thus committing the worst offense to my collection by not doing so. In a feeble attempt to overtake the blinding awesomeness in Drunketh's sullen grasp, I've scoured planet Earth in an attempt to find a release rarer and odder than this set. I've already found the Japanese Laserdisc, seen here, but the tape below just landed in the mailbox. Demonios released by "Paris Video Home" hailing from Argentina with cover art elements stolen from Amicus's Tales from the Crypt and The Evil Dead along with a incorrect note of Dario Agento being the director and Bobby Rhodes getting marquee credit.

I've always wanted that Laserdisc. And though this Japanese boxset it not without its flaws... it still is sexy as hell!

Definately don't pay over 100$ for it, Jay.

I agree with Drunketh, while it's super fuckin' cool I don't think I'd pay much more than $100 for it either.

I posted pics of the set on my blog.

I just noticed that front cover art shows Peter Cushing in zombie makeup from 1972's "Tales From The Crypt".

...do you dare tread upon the staircase?
