Demons 2

Accidentally reanimated, the Demons killed off in the original invade a tower block through the TV screens. Cue the obligatory party full of bright young things who bop till they drop dead, then, transformed, rampage about the building like Hooray Henries with a dental hygiene problem. The cliché meter keeps pace with the body count as Argento and Bava throw in the old claustrophobic-trapped-in-lift chestnut, the cute kid all alone with toy ray gun, and the pregnant woman terrorised by same when a plastic Gremlin bursts from his stomach. Only a gym full of demon-bashing body-builders provides any real spark, and even the gore isn't in sufficient abundance to satisfy the diehards.
