The two begin to bond like they use to. The two guys attempt to speak with the spirit, they are attacked but survive. It turns out that a spirit of a homicidal maniac has been speaking to Linda, so Jim has to stop it!


Review: From the director of the original Night of the Demons comes another really good horror film. I always had the intention of watching this, but never got around to it. I was really impressed by the camera use. Another plus is the films humor. Overall, this was a pretty good horror film, not perfect, but acceptable.
