Psychiatrist battles a cult of satanists
19 January 2006 | by (Camilla, GA) – See all my reviews

Due to the ratings success of the TV-movie "Fear No Evil" a year earlier, Universal decided to bring back demon-fighting David Sorell (Louis Jourdan) and have him deal with a sinister cult of devil-worshippers among the "beautiful people" of southern California. Chief among those are Academy Award winner Anne Baxter, John McMartin, and Diana Hyland (the beloved older paramour of the then twenty-something John Travolta). Wilfred Hyde-White, Jourdan's friend from the first film, returns in this one, while "The Rookies" Georg Stanford Brown is on hand as an artist with connections to the cult.

I recall that there was much uproar when the film aired because its conclusion left many viewers confused and disappointed in the resolution of the storyline.

This was especially disappointing for those of us that thought the first film was so well done.

Perhaps, this is the reason why there wasn't a third in the series.
