Night of Demons 2 (1994)

MPAA Rating: R
EW's GRADE
C

Details Movie Rated: R; Genre: Horror; With: Bobby Jacoby and Amelia Kinkade

Night of Demons 2, the sequel to one of the earliest direct-to-video horror hits, hews so closely to the not-quite-eternal verities (extra-grisly gore, gratuitous nudity, bad actors in their 20s playing high schoolers) you'd swear it was made back in 1987. Cheesily humorous touches, like the reform-school nun who practices fencing with her ruler, are also in keeping with, oh, any hundred or so such time-wasters. But if you're nostalgic for your misspent video-store youth, here's your Wayback Machine. C
