I hear you. And that's your opinion.

But bad FX, bad music, and a bad look to a movie can't drag down A-quality story, characters, writing, etc. This obviously is not Demons 2 I'm describing, but you get my point.

A bad story, characters, or just a terrible execution of plot by incompetent filmmakers can indeed strongly cripple a movie that is artificially good. Which is in fact the original Demons. A film with many good moments, quite a few very bad ones, but not a good whole.

The difference between the two films is radically little. Demons 2 just tries harder. And I know for a fact that people stay longer with a film because they're interested in something beyond its artifice. This is in fact true with most people.

That's my opinion. The one I've also come to discover is much more truthful to the way things are. It actually applies for people who don't watch these movies and to movies they watch that I will never.

Demons. Easily. Hell I prefer Demons 2 over Night of the Demons as well. Not that I don't like Notd, I just prefer the Italian-ness of the Demons movies. They're actually some of my all-time favourites and most watched horror movies.

Demons with ease. Night of the Demons is mind-numbingly bad. Doesn't possess one redeeming quality.

(Thank you!)

And even I was kinder to the movie than that, all you who thought I was too hard on it. Amelia Kincaid still has that dance sequence, after all.

I had to go with "Demons." I caught it late one night on cable when I was sick. Talk about a fever dream!

"Night of the Demons" is trippy in its own way but just never captured me the same way.
