Towers above the original
2 March 2018 | by VideoXploiterSee all my reviews

The opening does a good job of hooking you, after that it takes about half the movie for things to get going, but when they do, man, you get some of the best horror-camp the 80s spat in your face. First off, the set pieces are amazing - some of them looking like they'd be right at home in a Freddy movie. Also, the main actress sells her characters transformation once possessed, going from a wholesome, high school student into a vicious, murdering bitch. The cherry on the haunted cake is Micheal Ironside, who is always welcome in any movie (yes, even Highlander 2). Then, I suppose, the whip-cream is the girls locker room sequence (boner inducing). Lastly, the ending is spooktacular, with some more incredible effects. I highly recommend this superior sequel, and (spoilers) there's another one.
