Demons 2

Demons 2 ★★★

This sequel doesn't add much to the original but, to be fair, it doesn't disgrace it either. In fact, it's basically much the same movie, only set in an apartment block rather than a cinema. Once again, it has a rock-orientated soundtrack - albeit this time, the selection veers more towards alternative/goth rather than hard rock/metal. Thus, we get recognisable tunes by the likes of The Smiths, Fields of the Nephilim and The Cult popping up here.

Curiously, both Bobby Rhodes and Lino Salemme from the original's cast pop up in different roles this time around. You should also keep a lookout for a very young Asia Argento, plus director Lamberto Bava making a cameo in the food market scene as the complaining father.
