Reviews [click links to read more]:

“A general improvement in many ways of the first one with more polished and enjoyable horror scenes while still maintaining some of the big critical flaws from the first one, in the end this is a fine if slightly flawed effort.” Don’s World of Horror and Exploitation

“This low budget horror makes sacrifices where it can, but mercifully the special effects compensate. A befuddled plot driven by beautiful characters being tormented by nightmarish things makes for entertainment, but only with the right mood. That is not to say you won’t enjoy it, but you will be distracted for little over an hour and 30 minutes.” Nevermore Horror

Anna 2 diverts from the horror comedy of its predecessor and steers firmly towards paranormal horror with a side order of hell. Once again, Crum and Duncan own this movie with their onscreen bro-chemistry. I cannot fail to see glorious aspects of horror royalty such as Evil Dead and Supernatural in this movie…” Shauna Le Dead

“The film relies heavily on odd lighting, fog and smoke for atmosphere and they also help to hide any issues the creature suits and makeup may have had. The combination is quite effective. If you can deal with the lack of narrative coherence, Anna 2 is an energetic slice of micro-budget film making.” Voices from the Balcony
