Thirteen years after, Victor lost his faith in God ever since the death of Sorenne, and raises Angela, his daughter in Georgia all by himself.

These girls go missing, then, the 3-day manhunt ensues.

These girls were found in the barn during the third day of their missing; though traumatized, they seemed relatively normal, having endured only blaze to their feet. In the following day at their home, Angela attacked Victor and starts convulsing, while Katherine had an outburst during the church service wherein the sacrament of the Holy Communion is being celebrated. Victor admitted Angela to the hospital wherein Ann, their neighbor nurse attends to her. Miranda, Katherine’s mother, starts to theorize that these girls have traveled to Hell where they brought the demon back to them.

Writer’s Observation

Initially, you will try liking the movie, but, after some time watching the movie, you will start fear that it was a total dud. The bad thing about this movie is that, it is supposedly a horror film, but it is not horrifying even for a minute. A little strange and freaky, but definitely it is not scary. And if you want to be scared when watching a movie, this is not the movie for you.

Aside from the wonderful performance of Ellen Burstyn, none from the other stars will surely you. The two children, who were obsess were just fine, but not the terrific one. The movie is a kind of film whose trailer is even better and promised an old institute style story but the addition of new elements, made the result a terrible one. The movie script starts without that much interest, the scenarios of the primary symptoms of that demonic possession didn’t create tension and were quite simple, the exorcism scenes feel illogical and failed to stand out at some part in the movie. Though it manages to handle a couple of better scenes, but the use of characters from the first film did not make any sense, their participation was almost irrelevant, but it’s just nice to watch them again. Overall, the performances are all average, and they all did not achieve that masterful performance which the stars from the 1973 movie has achieved. The soundtrack is appreciated, since you can hear that legendary sound of “Tubular Bells” even though with certain alterations which aren’t poorly achieved.
