4.0 out of 5 starsScary and unexpected

This movie was quite scary, I was clinging to the edge of my seat in some of those terrifying scenes, especially when things went bump in the night and the things that were creeping around the house, I enjoyed it for the most part. I would never have had the nerve to go traipsing around in the pitch black streets after 10 o'clock at night jogging, or walking around in some creepy old cornfields. Talking about looking for trouble! It would have been a whole lot better though, if it didn't drag a bit too much in places. But the actors were great! This wasn't one of those movies where they seemed to have just picked people off the street and offered them a couple of bucks to star in a movie, these kids were extremely good in their roles, a rarity for most films nowadays. It's because of these very talented young ladies that I have given this movie 4 stars, rather than the 3 that I would have given otherwise. I liked this one a whole lot better than I did the "Girl in the Cornfield", which I had to stop watching because it didn't hold my interest when I viewed it a few months ago. In this one, though, I didn't see what ended up happening with a certain family member coming, I honestly wasn't even thinking about them having a part in what was going on, it was played that well. I won't say anything further about that however, because I don't want to spoil it for others. But this is a movie well worth watching.

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.

The two younger girls were good actors! I kept watching this much longer than I typically would just to see them. The father was the worst!!! He looked so uncomfortable, like he knew he was terrible and just wanted to flee. I think he might have been somebody's relative who was pressed into the role.
Omg, what a stinker! Plenty of things happen but with no coherence. It was the movie smorgasbord in hell. It looked as though whatever they thought of was just thrown in to see if it was scary/ would move the movie along (maybe it was movie stew).
This is what a supernatural story looks like with no research to make an actual plot. Shame on the director and producer.
Another thing. that bothered me was that the movie was soooo low budget. The lighting was terrible, there was no makeup and it just had an air of shabby defeat that was distracting. Come on already, use some creativity to make a monster. A stupid Halloween plastic monster hand with neon green nails was pathetic. But they made the movie anyway.
There were zero scares, no suspense, just girls running from room to room in their PJ's. It was so boring and dragged out. This should have been a 90 minute movie, tops. It was a 2+ hour expedition in search of a movie.

I hope the actors who played the 2 youngest kids, Abby and Caroline, get better material soon. They really deserve it. I gave 2 stars for them.

I do not know why this got so many bad reviews. It was scary and a perfect sequel to the first. Maybe if you did not watch the first one, then maybe you should have first. People are SO judgmental. And from someone who makes videos, granted, mine are music videos, but still, it is not easy. And with a limited budget, even harder. The acting was great and the plot scary. Just because it didn't have CGI to rely on or many camera angles, people get all pissy about it. I loved the ending, which had this been a Hollywood movie, it would have had the typical, stupid ending all horror movies have these days. I don't care what anyone else thinks. i loved it!!

here we go again with those damn cornfields.
first of all how does the father just take the little girl in; aren't there family courts, foster homes and other professionals to take care of these situations.

secondly, what is a Hindu Goddess doing in the middle of rural America, corn crops not withstanding. I suppose they figured the Native American theme was getting too cliche, but it would have made a lot more sense.
