The Ogre (aka Demons III: The Ogre, The Ogre: Demons 3, House of the Ogre and La casa dell'orco) is a 1988 Italian horror-made-for-TV film directed by Lamberto Bava and written by Dardano Sacchetti. It was the last of four films made for the TV series Brivido Giallo; other films include Graveyard Disturbance, Until Death and Dinner with a Vampire. Like the very similar Zombi series, it has little-to-no-relation to the films it claims to be a sequel to, and it was also followed by many unofficial sequels.
The Ogre was released in some areas as the unofficial third entry into Bava's Demons series, but the official "Demons 3" was actually Michele Soavi's The Church. For another unofficial third entry, see Umberto Lenzi's film Black Demons, released in some countries as Dèmoni 3/Demons 3.
Cheryl, an American writer of horror novels, travels with her husband Tom, and their young son Bobby, to a villa in rural Italy for a few weeks of vacation, and for Cheryl to work on her latest book. When Cheryl begins having nightmares from when she was a child of being stalked by an ugly being, an ogre, she tries to persuade her skeptical husband that the villa has a curse on it and it is using its power to manifest her nightmares into reality, including the demon/ogre. Cheryl must find a way to face her fear and somehow defeat the ogre before it starts claiming victims.
The film was released on Region 1 DVD by Shriek Show. Though the alternate title Demons III: The Ogre is present on the box art, the title card on the film itself is still just The Ogre.
