Dora (Daria Nicolodi) and Bruno (John Steiner) move into a new house with Marco (David Colin jr), her 7 year old son from a previous marriage. But actually it's not a new house but the house Dora lived with her first husband Carlo (Nicola Salerno) - but years ago, Carlo, a heroin addict, killed himself, which temporarily turned her into a mental case.

Thing is, now that she's back in the house, she starts being haunted by her past more and more ... and that Marco starts to behave ever more strangely and even menace his mother doesn't help one bit either. Soon enough, Dora is convinced that the house is haunted Carlo, but her husband simply refuses to believe her, thinking it's just a slight case of hsteria. Then suddenly, Dora even starts to remember that it was actually her who killed Carlo, and that doesn't exactly calm her down, but again Bruno tries to convince her it's just her nerves ... but then she finds him tearing down a wall in the cellar, and he confesses everything. After she killed her husband years back, he walled up the body and made it look like suicide ... but ever since, he didn't dare to have the house sold, fearing that someone might find the body, but now ... but now Dora attacks him with a hoe, half mad with hysteria. Then though, hte house with its moving furniture drives the last bit of good sense out of her and she cuts her own throat.

And Marco ?

He's happy he can now play in the garden with his ghost daddy undisturbed.

Allegedly, director Mario Bava couldn't be present during most of the filming of this movie due to an illness, but he made sure that his assistant director (and son) Lamberto Bava would be able to whelm the project even without him present. Mario Bava's absence in this film however is rather obviuos, as Behind the Door II painfully lacks the visual richness of pretty much all his earlier movies and instead presents the audience with nothing more than TV-thriller aesthetics, much more reminiscent of Lamberto Bava's later work as a director. In all, Behind the Door II is not too bad a shocker, it's just terribly and disappointingly mediocre and based on a rather silly script that spends way too much time with the film's set-up and doesn't really come into full bloom until the finale that alt least is pretty effective for the most part - though when poor Daria Nicolodi is menaced by a cupboard (!) in one of the last scenes, that's rather laugh-inducing.

Not really worth your while.
