This film, known as “Shock”, was also released under the title Beyond the Door II as an unofficial sequel to 1974’s Beyond the Door. It’s a possession story. Fine. It’s written by a bunch of people, and half of them used a pen name. Fine. But there’s no way to connect this to Beyond the Door. Truth be told, there’s no way to sell this film for what it is. It’s just another evil kid movie.
So, the child is possessed, but, for a while, he just looks a little slow. He’s the strangest kid. You’re never sure if the actor sucks, if the character is psychotic, or just evil. Is he hitting on his mom or plotting to kill her? It doesn’t help that his father is trying to drug his mother. Who does that? What is this movie about? Who am I supposed to relate to with so many assholes around?
The only way to enjoy this film is to laugh your way through it. It’s not gory, not funny, not particularly tense. It’s hard to feel anything, here. The most intense plot points fall flat. The budget isn’t there, but the story didn’t need it. Mario and Lamberto Bava are writing and directing, but I didn’t quite feel their brilliance. They’re pretty much on autopilot.
