Legend of the Overfiend sequel sees the main charcters returning and a plot about overthrowing the Overfiend, ruler of the three realms. I don't remember the "Lord of Chaos" thread, so that's probably the only new prospect, wherein the son of a Nazi mad scientist conjures a demon to challenge the overfiend (The blood transfer concept just as in the first film). I saw the first film a year and a half ago, and can only remember a few details on the minimal story. The first film concerned itself with savage sexuality and violence in every corner, and the plot was subverted by the sensationalism. In Legend of the Demon Womb, there's more of a focus on plot and characterization, and much less gore, violence, and rampant hedonism. The style is the same though and it's still X-rated. Seems as though the films work better watching them as a series, in one go possibly. Even in the first film, the movie is divided into episodes, so you get the feeling each film is unexplained without the next one. The plot in Legend of the Demon Womb was OK and sort of predictable given the prophecies, and leaves a lot to be desired. With less sexuality, violence, etc., at least have a bombastic climax, you know (No pun intedned)? Also, the ties to Christian theology would've been something to write home about. Combine the sexually active demons, Satan, man-beasts... script practically written by itself, yes? I still love the series to death thus far, and I know linking sex to violence is dangerous, but half of the damn series is a hentai, for crying out loud. The viewers are mature enough to decide which perspectives to intake. A "Nazi Death-Rape" machine is too far-fetched to take seriously, right?

EDIT: I just remembered that the finale is really sentimental and stupid, but that's about the only thing hindering this film
