Charley Brewster, the impressionable teenager, reluctantly comes to terms with the freakishly improbable events that scarred his adolescence, convincing himself that the undead creatures of the night were only figments of his imagination. Three years later and after countless sessions of therapy, Charley carefully stays away from his former vampire-slaying companion, Peter Vincent, however, when a motley crew of oddballs led by the cryptic Regine come to town, suddenly, Charley's past creeps up on him to haunt him. Is history repeating itself? Written by Nick Riganas

Pretty good sequel; worth a viewing.
4 August 2004 | by See all my reviews

Three years after killing the vampire in the original, Charlie has started to believe it was all his imagination and starts to forget that vampires truly exist - until four strangers lead by Regina, a noted actress, arrives at Peter Vincent's house and starts to have an unhealthy interest in Charlie, Peter and Charlie's new girlfriend Alex. It becomes clear that Regina is Jerry's (the vampire in the original film) sister and she is determined to get revenge on the friends and plans to turn Charlie into a vampire - so that he can face his punishment for all eternity. Though not as good as the original, I still enjoyed this film. The cast of the first returns and the script is still sprinkled with plenty of tongue-in-cheek humor, but it's not as fun as the first was. it was just missing that special "Umph". The strongest aspect of this film is the various special effects incarnations, which look great. These range from a man's face turning translucent and melting to stop-motion bat-like monsters. The special effects in this film look much better than in the first and are delivered in moderation (The ending notwithstanding) so they are effectively used and not their just to dazzle us. Fairly gory at times, and the effects-packed finale is certainly fun to watch. Julie Carmen is also really good as the vampiress. Pretty enjoyable sequel, rent it but don't buy it before you see it.
