"Demonic Toys 2 (2010)" Review

Synopsis: Dr. Lorca from Hideous! (Michael Citrini) is back and is continuing to collect strange odditites, along with the help of Caitlin (Alli Kinzel) and her boyfriend David (Lane Compton). Along the way, they collect the mysterious pieces of the last Demonic Toys and they continue their search at a mysterious castle in Italy, where there have been rumors of a mysterious, ancient puppet alive and walking around, which is under the control of a mysterious demon, who takes on the human form of a little woman named Lilith (Selene Luna). When not looking, the puppet brings the Demonic Toys back to life, and now... blood, terror and death counts will rise again.

Review:  Finally after 18 years we finally get a proper sequel to the original Demonic Toys and all I could wonder before beginning to watch this film was, please don't  have Corey Feldman (if you've seen Puppet Master VS Demonic Toys then you know why I say this!) in it. Of course there is no Corey Feldman in this film, what we do get is a sequel that actually turned out to be not that bad. As expected there is a whole new cast of characters besides 2 of the dolls that return from the original film. The acting is what you would come to expect from a Full Moon film which is typically in the range of over-the-top bad acting to some decently good acting. As far as the story goes it is different in alot of ways ,but does still have the demonic possession plot still intact. Now when it comes to the special effects there is pretty much a 50/50 balance of CGI and practical effects going on. All the practical effects do look great which I wish I could say the same for the CGI. Basically the CGI is quite cheap looking and laughable most of the time. Now I do know they were on a extremely low budget to make this film so I can easily look past that. As far as it being a sequel goes, I definitely think they did a good job with making something that fans of the original can relate to, but at the same time also give them something new. Overall if you enjoyed the first one like I did then I highly recommend you give this one at least a chance because you may actually like it.
