Sequel to 1988’s Night of the Demons
After a pretty entertaining first movie, Night of the Demons 2 does what every good sequel is supposed to do. Especially for a horror film of this type. It ups the gore, nudity, and twisted humor of the first entry to whole new levels of ridiculous. And, believe it or not, it works. Night of the Demons 2 is a hugely entertaining follow-up to the 1988 original that offers up even more of everything you wanted. It actually makes me sad this series hasn’t been more widely talked about it when it comes to horror movies.
After proving to be one of the more interesting characters from the original film, the sequel rightly makes Angela the main villain. And boy, does Amelia Kinkade do an amazing job. She goes all in as a demon trying to get on the Devil’s good side, clearly having a grand time in the role. As for what I said about the whole demon and Devil thing, well, you heard me right. What makes this movie work so well is not just how ridiculous it is, but how much everyone involved embraces it. Night of the Demons 2 is filled with moments that made me do a double take to make sure I wasn’t dreaming up what I just saw. Seriously, not even kidding. Go see this movie for yourself and then get back to me. Also, look out for a young Christine Taylor in this.
Night of the Demons 2 is the rare sequel that actually surpasses the original. Better fleshed out characters, more ridiculous moments than the previous, and a cast that goes all-in equals some of the most fun I’ve had watching a horror movie. This sequel, even more so than the original, helps cement these films as the cult classics they so rightfully are, and why Angela is one of horror’s best villains.
