Night of the Demons 2 (1994)

Night of the Demons 2 (USA, 1994) - Color, Director(s): Brian Trenchard-Smith
MPAA Rating: R
[UK: 18]
Approx. 95 min.

Z-rating: 4 out of 5 stars for good old B-movie entertainment

Cheese Factor: 4 out of 5 stars for high grade cheese

I've already reviewed the original and the remake, so I thought it was fitting to give this sequel a review as well. This sequel is loyal to the original's level of madness in full B-grade glory with lipstick that turns into tentacles and crawl into girl's vaginas and then having hands come out of her boobs to grab other people.

The story takes place a few years after the original as Angela's kid sister now attends a Catholic boarding school for trouble youth. When one of the bitches gets herself banned from the dance, she decides to throw her own party at Hull House. Inviting a group of misfits along, they all have a Halloween party at the same house where the massacre in the original movie took place. (Great idea!) Sure enough, these dumb ass teens bring something back from Hull House and unleash all Hell back at school.

As much as I love movies that spend their time building up a creepy atmosphere, a bunch of the movies that I've been watching lately have had a serious lack of terror. Meaning that they spend enough time to build the atmosphere but there's not enough pay off at the end. Equally as important as the mood you set up for the film are the scenes that actually scare you. I've been watching a ton of horror movies in order to pick which ones I want to review for Halloween and I feel like it would have to be a mix of newer and older films as the new films just aren't getting it done for me. We need more crazy shit happening in the movies nowadays like shit crawling out of inanimate objects into girl's vaginas. That's all I'm saying.

Nudity: Lots, as you'd expect from this type of low-budget scream-fest.

Before the hands...

Gore: Over the top! Although this one had a bit of CGI, it wasn't filled with it and that was cool. This was the type of insane, violent action that I like with my horror movies.


Awesome: Pretty awesome. Was a nice break away from movies that try to be too subtle with their scares, usually trying to go for more psychological stuff. Sometimes, you just want some good old fashioned scares with some blood and guts.
