Demons 2: The Nightmare Returns (1986) Review
Lamberto Bava directed Demons 2 (1986) was filmed on an estimated $1.5 million budget. This film is the second installment to the Demons (1985) also written in part by Dario Argento.
Demons 2 tells the horrific story of a group of tenants who become trapped in a 10 story high rise apartment building. Demons infest the floors and are looking to tear human flesh.
As you’ve probably heard, Demons 2 is more or less the original Demons movie done again. However, it’s a pretty hollow sequel. Sure, there’s lots of blood and gore, but it has even less of a plot than the original. The little plot there is, has a lot of plot holes; just *how*, for example, did a lousy TV broadcast start the phenomenon? And what happened to that subplot about the youths in the car, and the guy waiting outside for them?
But what’s worse is the extreme stupidity of the characters. Now, this isn’t supposed to be an intellectual exercise - it’s a splatterfest. But when you have characters CONSTANTLY making the most questionable decisions, it’s hard to give a hoot about them - or for the entire movie, for that matter. I could give you examples of this stupidity, but it’s late, and I’m tired. Besides, I don’t think it’s worth spending any more brainpower on this brainless mess.
