demons 2 (1986)

Unlike Demons, Bava is unable to recreate the magic and we end up with a mixed bag. There's enough inspiration; populace trapped by their own modern conveniences when the power goes out, the demons even enter through a tv movie everyone's watching, but the rest is messy. There's nothing to equal the thrills of the first, this time the demons come off more comedic and the film itself is scattershot. No characters to become entangled in, a repeat of the car sequences from the first turns up flat. All in all, Demons 2 fails to connect and despite some cool fragments we're not in horror bliss territory.
