This time, no co-star of Grant's stature joins the WASPy, waspish Sands, and except for the occasional neat special effect, this sequel proves an exceedingly cheesy affair.
Should've been Armageddon for the franchise, but unfortunately they made a third one too.
He's back, in a messy bloody gory sequence where an innocent young girl gives birth to Satans son, the Warlock is reborn. Julian Sands rises once more to reap carnage on all that stand in his way, plus he still looks annoying good looking with that tarty hairdo.
Not too sure whether Sands Warlock is suppose to be a mere spawn of Satan in the same guise or the same devilish soul as before just reborn, I'm guessing the latter. Anywho off we go as Mr Warlock merrily kills, mutilates and destroys one person after another as he searches for the mystical rune stones that may raise his boss.
That's the plot right there, its easy and simple, but what this film offers is exactly what you want, more imaginative killing by the Warlock. We get that in spades this time round with the added bonus of much better production values, better effects, much more interesting deaths and heaps more blood n gore. That's it really, nothing more to say, its clear there is a better budget this time round, the cast are more recognisable too.
Whether you feel its better than the original I don't know, the original has more of a proper plot, this is obviously just a rehash with extra claret on display. To be honest this does feel more like a Satanic 'Terminator' really, 'T2' with a Warlock, not scene for scene of course but along those lines.
What I find interesting about this Warlock character is the fact he is completely evil, he can't be bargained with, he doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear...haaang on!. He shows no mercy ever, he double crosses, tricks, leads people into a false sense of security and no one is safe no matter how young or how sexy, no guilt, just kill, actually kinda creepy despite the ham.
More of a riot for sure but loses the credibility of the first methinks. Naturally cliched, predictable and routine type stuff but that low budget feel (even though higher than before) somehow tends to make things so much better, more acceptable.
Enjoyable fantasy horror about the son of Satan's attempt to resurrect his father in modern day America. It's not particularly frightening or scary and the digital effects look dated, but it's fast-paced, gruesome and Julian Sands owns as the Warlock once again.
Warlocks with Julian Sands are the Best. I dont say Bruce Payne was bad, just not so convincing like Julian Sands.
Julian Sands as the Son of Satan returns for the final battle between good and evil is pretty cool. Even though there are many body counts, and I see some improvements in the special effects than the first one. The first Warlock was better dramatically, but this film is better violently.
