Lamberto Bava’s demons (with the precious collaboration of Dario Argento) return to the screen following the hit international success of the first film. Remaining faithful to the theme developed in the first instalment, this time round evil jumps out from the TV set to spread the horror of cinematic citations and stabs to the back of the world of show business. With its entertaining splatter (for fans of the genre, obviously), underlying irony and a strong desire to overstate, the film confidently earns a place in the hall of fame of horror movies.
Young Sally is watching a horror film on TV when demons jump out from the screen and infect her. During her birthday party, Sally transforms into a blood-thirsty monster and a short time later all her guests are just like her. A power black-out in the building only worsens the situation for the variety of still-human tenants who will have to fight to save themselves from the clutches of the infected.
