Excerpt: Demons 2 emblematizes the Freudian repetition compulsion that lies at the dark heart of the horror genre. Audiences, so the theory goes, flock to horror movies (and, by extension, their ever-proliferating sequels) to come into visceral contact with some primal traumatic shock. By confronting and thus "mastering" the trauma, viewers convert the experience from a psychic wound to a malleable source of pleasure.
Conclusion: In the audio commentary offered on this release, director Lamberto Bava mentions that some of the principal actors apparently did not believe in Demons 2 . I think that this is something that definitely shows in the film. I must also say that the script for Demons 2 isn't particularly good. There are entire portions of the flim that simply do not work.
