What struck me most in Demons was the atmosphere. It was eerie, spooky and uncanny.

Hämmentävä ja painostava novelli naisesta, joka muuttaa pieneen kylään tyttärensä kanssa. Kyläläiset käyttäytyvät kuitenkin oudosti ja nainen alkaa itsekin kuulla kummallisia ääniä. Mikä on vialla? Parasta tässä oli tunnelma, jonka paino kasaantui rinnan päälle pikkuhiljaa. Novelli jättää hienosti tulkinnanvaraa.
