The scene where Hannah (Nancy Brilli) has a baby was not part of the original script. Originally, Hannah's baby would become a demon inside her and claw its way out of her. This scene was taken out when Lamberto Bava and Dario Argento decided they wanted a happier ending. See more »
The birthday cake shown at about 25 minutes into the film is not the same one we were shown at the start of the film, the hand-lettering is different, actually more legible than it originally was. See more »

call it THEY CAME FROM WITHIN meets NIGHT OF THE LIVING DEAD
While better than the first (it actually has a plot), the film suffers from lapses in logic and a confusing plot that doesn't make complete sense.
It's highly derivative of David Cronenberg's early seventies flick, They Came from Within a.k.a. Shivers. there are also elements of Night of the Living Dead thrown in so to add some flavor. even the demons infiltrate the inhabitants via a t.v. and there is one scene in this that is a complete ripoff of another Cronenberg film, Videodrome.
the gore effects are well done and the acting is all over the map, though better than the first film. the film gallops along without any rhyme or reason as to what went on before, and this quick pacing helps keep the enjoyment factor higher than usual.
a lot of people hate this film compared to the first, and while it's a completely different type of film, on it's own terms it's not that bad.
FYI:the newly released uncut version by Anchor Bay runs a full 3 minutes longer than the edited R-rated version and is the one to see.
