I am a fan of the first and I have to say this one stacks up. Okay a lot of people think the second is not as scary or spooky and things of that nature. I agree it's not, but was the first one all that spooky anyway. The Furnace Demon was cheesey. Angela was good. Here we have Angela and yes she's not scary, but I really don't think the movie is meant to be scary, but fun. That it is. While I'll admit it doesn't have the same circle arc as the first one, it still has joyful tounge-in-cheek chuckles. The motif of lipstick, for example, is carried on to this one. My main complaint is NO DVD. I like DVD and I fear this one will be forgotten in the shuffle. Don't let other people sell this movie short. It's good, just know what to expect.
