"NEW YORK 1997", Great post. I didn't notice that the wireframe CG was just model animation with reflective strips on. .. nice.

I've got the DVD and it must be a remastered version, the "wireframe" bit has been replace with some new cgi bobbins, star wars ep4 style. It's a travesty.... Also got cgi helicopters in it for some reason?
when is it going to be remade? ;) (when I'm rich n famous I going to remake "DEMONS", shot for shot on SVHS)

I heard he used the Sound Arts studio in L.A. The same studio as Moroder used.
