Plot
The original Demons took place in a theater; this one in an apartment building where a party is being thrown. Efforts are put in reminiscing and continuing the story, but the narrative is clustered by bad script decisions and overacting, for some reason, while everything else is underachieved.
It’s not as dynamic as the original one and the pacing is a little off. The gimmick isn't as strong and as a result the film isn't that involving, sadly. It’s scary and gory, though, and offers new twists and subplots relating to the infectious demon concept. The effects are as organic as you remember them to be and the picture looks good, well lit and creepy.
The second half picks up the pace and gets in more familiar territories, with people running around and trying to escape. There is an efficient tension, most of the time, although some scenes could have benefited from a score and better sound effects. The film is excellent at setting an ambiance, but I feel the editing too often breaks the flow, ruining the hype.
