While young Cheryl is riding the West Berlin subway, a strange man in a metallic mask hands her tickets to a movie at a newly renovated theater. She invites her friend Kathy to go with her, and they meet up with 2 young men in the lobby. A pimp and 2 of his girls are checking out displays in the lobby, one of which is a demon mask from the film. One of the prostitutes tries on the mask and is cut while removing it. While the film (a violent horror movie) is starting, the woman's wound starts oozing green slime...and in seconds she becomes a hideous, fanged & clawed demon! She attacks anyone who crosses her path, and soon the theater is filled with people turning into demons - and those trying to avoid attack. The theater exits have disappeared. Even stopping the film doesn't help, as newer demons appear. Cheryl & George (one of the young men) start a desperate battle for survival, as George rides a motorcycle wielding a samurai sword through the theater, killing demons as he goes. But will the two of them succeed in escaping the evil demons who now inhabit West Berlin's streets?
They will make cemeteries their cathedrals and the cities will be your tombs.

- A poster for 4 mosche di velluto grigio (1971) is visible in the lobby of the theatre: it's the title of writer/producer Dario Argento's third film.
The building used for the exteriors of the Metropol theater still stands in Berlin. It's a club called Goya that's been host to several horror conventions thanks to its appearance in this film.
Lamberto Bava cites this as his personal favorite of the films he has directed.
The Playstation video game 'Silent Hill' pays homage to this film as a theater called 'Metropol' can be seen in the game, along with posters advertising this film at the box office.
All of the graphic violence in the film was fully scripted and little improvisation was done on screen.
