Name That Trauma :: Reader GeeQ M. on a Nerdy Yellow Demon

September 7th, 2011 by aunt john · 9 Comments

OK, this didn’t totally scar, or scare me… but I NEED to watch it again. I’m usually pretty good with finding old movies I used to watch as a kid on T.V. in the middle of the night… I own copies of MONSTER IN THE CLOSET, UNINVITED (cat demon on a boat version) and GHOULIES 2…(GHOULIES 1 sucked)… BUT I specifically remember one thing that I can’t find.

It was a nerdy guy who was attempting to summon a demon. Somehow or other he ends up summoning a nerdy demon. Like a lesser demon or something like that. I want to say the demon was yellow, and there may have been a point that he wore glasses. The demon was trapped in a pentagram force field or something like that, and couldn’t move, but I think the movie had a lot of talking. IF I remember correctly, the yellow demon made a deal with the human to help him summon a more powerful demon and there was a huge thing about passing something (summoning scroll maybe) through the force field.

PLEASE help. I want to say it was on USA UP ALL NIGHTMAYBE HBO… It also could have been a short film, because I think it all happened in one room.

    It sounds like “The Gate 2” to me.

    Also, check out “The Gate.” That movie is abaout as awesome as a kid’s horror movie can get.

    Thanks EE!

    I hope that’s it! In any case it’s always a good time to bring up Gate II…

    Gate II is also available on VEOH…

    Yeah, I remember loving both of those movies as a kid. I haven’t seen either of them in nearly a decade. God, I’m old. lol

    BTW, do you have any idea why my Gravatar thingy isn’t working?

    This sounded really familiar to me. I think it might be from a episode of the TV show “Monsters” from a episode called The Demons.

    It has Richard Moll in it as a bespectacled nerdy type Demon/Alien. If not then it’s a awesome episode anyways.

    Wow! I loved The Gate… but had no clue they made a sequel!

    ZombiJoe, That looks like it fits too! I love richard Moll!

    EE, Sorry that Gravatar s acting wonky. It seems there is always something weird going on with our comment system!

    Knob, the gate 2 is pretty good but it really is hard to find. I wish they would just put it as an extra on a Gate dvd…

    Never saw that Ep. of Monsters. Sounds right up my alley, though. 🙂
