Lamberto Bava's "Demons" is easily one of the most popular Italian horror films ever made along with Dario Argento's gialli and Lucio Fulci's zombie bloodbaths.In "Demons 2" the action moves from a cinema to a high-rise block of flats;a documentary in which a team of archaeologists explore the ruins of the city besieged by demons in the first film is showing on TV.As the team are attacked by a resurrected demon,the creature forces its way out of a TV set and into the real world,infecting the unlucky residents of the building and transforming them into bloodthirsty demons."Demoni 2" is not as gory as "Demoni".It plays more like a campy comedy as it features some truly hilarious moments.The special effects are surprisingly tacky and amateurish(demon dog and demon baby look especially horrible),the script is silly,but the film is fast-paced and mildly entertaining.The score by Simon Boswell is sleep-inducing compared to the one Claudio Simonetti gave us in the first.At least we get some lovely songs by Dead Can Dance,The Smiths and The Cult.If you are a fan of "Demons" you can give this one a look,just don't expect anything as great as the original.7 out of 10.
