In the wake of losing everything during the great recession, a twenty-something couple make a suicide pact: They will max out their credit cards and live life with reckless abandon before killing themselves.
The Freeling family move in with Diane's mother in an effort to escape the trauma and aftermath of Carol Anne's abduction by the Beast. But the Beast is not to be put off so easily and appears in a ghostly apparition as the Reverend Kane, a religeous zealot responsible for the deaths of his many followers. His goal is simple - he wants the angelic Carol Anne; but the love of her family and the power of psychic Tangina once again unite, along with an elderly native American, to fight for her life.

Despite prominent billing, Julian Beck only gets eleven minutes of screentime; Beck died of stomach cancer during filming, so the latter scenes with the "vomit monster" had to be added to replace his remaining scenes (the reason it resembles Beck). His telling the Freelings they're going to die has been interpreted as Beck anticipating his oncoming death. Many of Beck's lines were looped in post-production by noted voice actor Corey Burton.

In the scene where Carol-Anne is drying her dolls hair, Carol-Anne has wet hair, later in the scene when Steve tells Diane she never wanted Carol-Anne, Carol-Anne peers round the bathroom door with dry hair, yet earlier in the scene Diane says to Steve that she should dry Carol-Anne's hair, this clearly indicates different times when the scene was filmed.

Inevitable sequel to smash-hit original is far less effective horror wise, with the melodramatic story of how the ghosts were not left behind when the Freeling family moved, but instead follow them to their new home. The chief ghost(a sort of creepy old man who led a cult) is determined to seize Carol Anne, and use her to guide the ghosts out of limbo, and through the other side...
Trying to make sense out of the bizarre happenings is futile, film is only concerned with over-the-top F/X sequences that blindside the viewer, and result is a nonsensical sequel that serves no real purpose; though cast is still good, the film is not.
