Not a single aspect of this film suggests that anyone involved in the production cared.

What do you call those guys who paint themselves silver and then stand still like statues? This has one of those. A threatening one. So, if that sounds up your alley...

a tedious, underwhelming cash grab if there ever was one - a cynical attempt to use the iconic bent-over-backwards image of a possessed girl and the name recognition of the first movie to swindle people out of their money.

There's a lot to be said for restraint in a horror film, but the filmmakers went for too far of an extreme here.

Gone is the shaky-cam dynamic. Gone is the whole "devil inside" ideal, and gone is any reason to care or watch.

It all builds towards another sequel-ready ending, so expect this nonsensically titled series to run and run.

Writer/director Ed Gass-Donnelly's film offers little ironic edge or incisive imagery, pushing far too hard with an unpleasant emphasis on sexuality, and ending up as a by-the-numbers rehash of the original film's weakest elements.

It's dreary, formulaic stuff that even manages to make a Mardi Gras parade look dull.

Too many things in Part II only happen because this is a film, with telegraphed sound effects travelling as fast as the speed of light. Only in Hollywood do such rules of physics apply.

When you qualify your movie as the "last" anything, a sequel seems a bit out of the question, but these new filmmakers have essentially relegated the 2010 original to a mere backstory.

if this ludicrously-titled follow-up sounds like a crass cash-in, ...the devil here is in the details, some of which are strikingly novel.

A movie that doesn't go for the spectacular but slowly and surely a dullness pervades.

Too much creeping around and a lack of genuine creepiness doom this tepidly spooky experience.

By the time the kamikaze crows start dive-bombing the church windows, and the shape-shifting demon appears in a hoody and a Venetian carnival mask, the whole thing has degenerated into a mumbo jumbo gumbo.

It's a bit disconcerting seeing the words "Part II" here.

The movie bellyflops abysmally in its second half.

An inventive Satanic shocker, which is much more than we expected.

Ultimately adds very little to the previous film apart from making a mockery of its title and paving the way for future instalments.

Those brave souls who do venture to the cinema to witness this demonic dirge can at least feel relieved that it's nowhere near as dismal a viewing experience as The Devil Inside.
