The Nightmare Returns Through Television in a Residential Building
2 June 2004 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

In a residential building, demons are released though a television horror film, where two couples visit the forbidden area nearby the Metropol movie theater to seek vestiges of the demon infestation some time ago and accidentally resurrect one demon. The guests of Sally (Coralina Cataldi Tassoni) in her birthday party are infected by the demons and spread the contamination to the residents. Each viewer that is infected by a monster, is contaminated and transformed in another monster, threatening the rest of the defenseless persons. The survivals realize that they are trapped in the locked building and organize a defense in the garage. Meanwhile, George (David Knight) and his pregnant wife Hannah (Nancy Brilli) seek a way out through the roof.

"Demons 2" is a rip-off of "Demons", using television in a residential building to spread the demons, instead of a screen in a movie theater, and funnier. I saw this film many other times on VHS and today (05 November 2010) I have just seen it on DVD. This film has great make-up and special effects, but the original "Demons" is better and scarier. One attraction is the eleven year-old Asia Argento, in the role of Ingrid Haller. This movie is only recommended for fans of trash-movies. My vote is six.

Title (Brazil): 'Demons 2 – Eles Voltaram' ('Demons 2 – They Are Back')
