Lamberto Bava's sequel to his cult classic Demons (1985) is one uproariously hokey horror movie, but it's certainly entertaining.
Those pesky demons return, this time invading a high rise apartment building via a television and reek bloody havoc on the tenants.
Bava's original Demons was a tongue-in-cheek thrill ride, but Demons 2 is uber horror cheesiness. I don't mean that in a negative way in this case because this is one entertaining sequel! You've got it all here folks - demon dogs, demon kids, hordes of demons attacking in mass. Naturally the makeup work is pretty good, over the top and grisly as always. Plot-wise there's some good thrills, although the story is largely a rehash of the plot from Demons. The music of Simon Boswell is great and the addition of some retro rock songs by The Cult and The Smiths is a fun touch.
The cast hangs in well. Look for appearances by Bobby Rhodes and Lino Salemme from the original Demons - they play different characters here though. Also look for a young Asia Argento (Dario's daughter) in a small role.
All around a fun camp horror film, best taken with no seriousness at all!
*** out of ****
