Wow, there were so many things I didn't like about this film. The fundamentals of film making are bad. Screen direction, editing, continuity...dreadfully done. It made the story incredibly hard to follow. Then the actual script made no sense. When the director tried to bring it all together it the end, it just got worse.
Spoilers, for what's it worth.
Supposedly this demon chilling out in a cornfield will walk into the street into oncoming traffic to attach itself to a person or a family. Like most demons it demands a sacrifice of some sort which a father does to protect his kids from being taken by said demon. Apparently, the demon will then take residence in the home in the form of a child while the family prospers for a time. Then the demon will kill everyone in the home for kicks because...that's how demons roll. 3/4 of this sucky film is dedicated to revealing this, only for a good chunk of what was explained to be thrown out the window in one scene at the end of the film.
Other than the horrible way in which Where Demons Dwell 2 was filmed, the details of the story make no sense. The timeline shows that the events of the film took place over the course of a week or so until the end when some degree of time has passed. But the director is horrible in giving visual indications of flashback or foreshadowing, shooting everything in the same style. Even a $5 filter over the lens would have helped, but no, everything is shot the same way and the bad editing doesn't help either. One scene, you're watching the main characters in their home and the next scene randomly cuts to an investigator cutting herself in a cornfield with no explanation as to why she did it or what happened to her as a result. The effects are laughably bad. We're not talking low budget, we're talking no budget here. But there were a couple of good jump scares though. The story just becomes nonsense because the family is being terrorized by a demon but is desperately trying to live normal lives despite this. The lore established in the film isn't being consistently followed which makes it worse.
There are just too many scenes that simply don't make sense. Example, Abby (Alex Santoleri ) gets a call from her mom to go to the cornfield alone, which she stupidly does. Abby sees her mom standing in the cornfield but then she vanishes. Instead of Abby getting out of there, she goes deeper into the cornfield as the time of day goes from dusk to night unnaturally fast. Abby knows the woman in white is there so what's the point in going? What did she expect to find? Her mom left the family but is hanging out in a cornfield with the woman in white? Really? What would have made a better reveal is if her mom didn't leave the family. That's the story her dad told. It would have been much better If her dad killed her mom in the cornfield as a sacrifice to the woman in white in order to get the family out of debt. Why not, the wife was going to skip town anyway, may as well get something out of it. Caroline (Sami Bray) is the child the woman in white tells him to care for which is why Tiffany (Madeline Lupi) saw him carrying her earlier in the film.
But that would make too much sense in the context of the story so instead, we get some convoluted nonsense about kidnapping, restraining orders and idiots being idiots. To make it worse, there's a scene where it looks like Abby's father killed Caroline and Caroline's father as he shot Caroline's father in the back but when his body fell, Caroline was lying next to him covered in blood. There was absolutely no explanation for that or the scene at the end when Abby sees a missing person's flyer featuring Caroline only to turn around and see Caroline as she runs toward Abby and gives her a hug.
I could go on and on about how too many scenes just made no sense. The only good things about the film are the music, I really liked the 80s styled song being played during the first jogging sequence. Some of the incidental music was really good. Madeline Lupi who played her part well for what the film is and Alex Santoleri was good. Michelle Lulic wasn't that good here but it's not completely her fault. Her character was written really poorly and then there was what looked like a huge zit on her forehead that I couldn't stop seeing. To be fair it's probably mole but I dunno. I like that the lady in white (Mollie Sperduto) is short and plump (but I hated the blue face though). I'm so sick of the typical Barbie look so seeing something real and natural was good. Sometimes it was strange that the woman in white looked like Tiffany (Madeline Lupi) in some scenes though.
Anyways, pass on this unless you want a to watch a film that's going to help you sleep. It did wonders for me as I didn't watch it in its entirety until the 3rd attempt.
