Slightly slow pacing
5 October 2017 | by hellholehorrorSee all my reviews

Some of the scenes were missing sound atmosphere. The special effects were mostly impressive especially for the age. Dialogue was sometimes a little quiet. The aspect ratio was a bit ugly. Slightly slow pacing in the middle. It followed the first movie well. It took the story a bit further and was quite original in the intense kid's horror area. The ending was a bit horridly happy. There aren't many films like this. It didn't have the brilliance of the first movie but I did enjoy it a lot especially as it had that awesome eighties vibe. What a fantastic ending. Demons for kid's and I like it!
