A worthy sequel to Lamberto Bava's 1985 gorehound shocker "Demons" is also directed by Bava and produced by the legendary Dario Argento. The make-up effects especially the little shreiking demon that comes out of a possessed boy are well done and the music score by Simon Boswell is enjoyable, it's nowhere as good as the original cult favorite but still delivers some shocking effects and of course the debut of Dario's daughter Asia in her first movie role.
This DVD contains great picture and sound with the uncut uncensored version with audio commentary and Trailers to this and other Anchor Bay/Starz releases.
The series went on to have two more sequels 'the church' and 'demons 3 , the orgre" the church is like this one with people being attacked by demons, the ogre is not really. But this is a direct sequel and it's still a fun horror movie. NOt a classic by any standards though. Demons is fierce and pure terror and this one isn't quite as good for sure. But it's not a one star movie as a few people have stated. The print looks pretty good here too. THis one needs to be put out on blu ray along with 'demons' , the best deal would be both on one blu ray... but , it has been reported that at least 'demons' will come out on blu ray in the future. The date of release is not out yet... well , at least we have this on dvd along with all the others in the series.
Plot-wise, there's really nothing of substance here. What you get is just enough to (sort of) make sense of why everything's going on.
No time is spent developing the characters and the sheer number of them leaves the viewer completely uninterested in what happens to them anyway.
The special fx are good, though i found the original Demons to be a bit more impressive. This is basically the movie's sole strong point and is, quite honestly, the only reason i'd watch it again.
The dubbing ranges from laughable to passable, which i suppose is pretty typical for the genre. On the bright side, this movie contains so little plot that you could probably watch it with the sound off and get just as much out of it.
There's not much in the way of special features... basically a commentary track which I'll more than likely never listen to.
Worth seeing if you're a fan of cheesy gore and fast moving zombies (demons) or if you like goofy Italian horror flicks. This is nothing a casual horror fan would enjoy.
