Frequently Bought Together
The demons are back, spreading through the television screens of a modern apartment building, turning the residents into fanged, clawed monsters. The exits are sealed, the power has been cut off, and the number of human survivors grows smaller with every passing minute.... This is director Lamberto Bava's own cut of the sequel to the popular 1985 Italian horror hit.

It starts with a clever plot of various people watching a film on TV about the events in 'Demons' before one of the fictional demons lurches through the TV screen and gets stuck into a bit of savagery, it's a domino effect from then on in through the apartment block as neighbours, kids and even the pet dog gets a dose of the demons.
Although you don't need to see 'Demons' to get this, I'd recommend you do because it's the better of the two films.
The dubbing in this is pretty abominable from memory and the voice over on the tv sequence was cheesy, but given the cool effects and aggressive nature of the demons I'm willing to forgive just about anything that goes on in this film. There is one particularly cool scene where the demons eyes were lit up and glowing in the dark -you just don't get quality film making like that any more! And did I mention how tough the demons are -I was kept on the edge of my seat, teeth chattering, as two demons were run over by a car three times (3) -that's not a misprint, it really was three -and finally being squashed in to a wall before they would stay down. I wish every move was like this.
If you haven't seen it then you've got to get a copy of this movie. It's fast paced, has lots of jump-worthy moments and best of all it's violent. It's pure entertainment all the way through.
The soundtrack is truly appalling - it goes from barely audible to just audible, with dialogue hardly discernable. Sometimes the picture flickers so you assume it has been transferred from a VHS tape.
I guess the story revolves around a birthday party for a young woman held in high-rise apartment. Quite why she shuts herself away to watch a horror film on TV when her pals are partying in the next room is confusing. Anyway, the demon who enters her life (via the TV screen) and her own transformation into a maleviolent creature are suitably horrible.
There are periods in the film where little happens and should have been edited out. For example, one of the party guests is left standing outside and we see too much of him doing nothing.
Another major let-down with the film is the ridiculous and childish creature that erupts from a demonized child. It looks like it is straight from the Gremlins films and ends up in some unfunny chase in a sequence that had me thinking of a Laurel & Hardy film. If only it was of that quality.
As for the extras, I could not find any commentry but there is a short film that is more interesting than the main feature. It ends suddenly so I guess its a taster - but there is nothing to explain its inclusion.
I saw Demons 20 years ago and remember it being better than "2" - like the other reviews here suggest it is.
From what I can tell this film is set about a month or so after the incidents of the first movie. As with the first film this is plagued with horrible dubbing and terrible acting but that is what makes these films all the more amusing.
There were a few good scenes (most notable the battle between the humans and the demons in the garage) and there are also some very bad ones (were the lead actress is attacked by a tiny demon that looks vertually exactly the same as something from the movie 'The Gremlins').
Director Lamberto Bava mainly focuses on the action aspect of the film and not the story but that doesnt really matter as atleast he keeps things moving at a fast pace. Bobby Rhodes who plays the Hank the Gym instructor also starred as the Pimp in the first Demons film and look out for Lino Salemme who starred as one of the gang members in the previous film, this time playing a security guard.
Overall if you liked the first film then you will love this one, it has great makeup effects and alot of gore if you didnt like the first one then stay well clear of this!

Not a patch on the first mainly due to poorer budget restraints I guess. Still a descent watch all the same. J Counsell.Published 9 months ago by Lincoln
This film took me back some years, and I really enjoyed watching it again. It's not taking itself too seriously, and I loved the black-comedly edge to it.Published 17 months ago by jools
