    Body Count

    ★½

    Right, oddly this 1986 film passed me by in my era of horror slashers but get this. Directed by Ruggero Deodato, screenplay Dardano Sacchetti (under a pseudonym) and music by Claudio Simonetti.

    It will come as no surprise that this sequel is not as good as the original but that does not mean it is a failure.

    Set 15 minutes after the ending of the original we now are party to a SWAT type team entering the building with a specialist. None of the characters are overly endearing so, unlike the first, there is no real investment in to their survival. 

    The film still employs the camera footage gimmick but spices it…
