Writer Cheryl (Virginia Bryant) has just moved into an Italian castle for the summer with her husband Tom (Paolo Malco) and her son Bobby (Patrizio Vinci) - when weird things start to happen, like the basement in the castle that totally resembles that one from Cheryl's traumatic childhood experience back in Oregon, the repeated appearance of some green slime she somehow connects to an orge, and then even the babysitter (Stefania Montorsi) vanishes into thin air. Cheryl thinks her childhood ogre ahs come back to haunt her, but her husband thinks she's just hysterical and the whole story is pure nonsense ... that is, until the ogre (David Flosi) really attacks - and only just does Cheryl manage to run it over by car. Then it disappears.



One can't denie that Demons III: The Ogre (no connection to Bava's previous Demons-films) is a very atmospheric film, maybe Bava's most atmospheric to date - even if one of the best scenes, in which Cheryl dives into a pool of green slime in the basement is directly lifted from Dario Argento's Inferno -, but that's just the problem with the film, it's just one scene supposed to haunt you after the other, with little else, until after a time this concept starts to seem artificial ... and when the ogre shows up later on, it just looks ridiculous and destroys the atmosphere. A rather underwhelming finale doesn't help much either.

Still, one of Lamberto Bava's better films.
