Disappointing sequel that sticks too close to formula.

An old policeman starts to fret over a case he didn't solve 25 years ago, which also had the inconvenient knock on effect of preventing him from shagging his boss, then makes himself feel better by writing a book about it. And shagging his boss.

Cage plays a hitman who has to do one last job so he teaches a youngster all he knows and falls in love with a deaf chemist. The film then bucks expectation by allowing Cage's character to leave the profession with dignity and live to a ripe old age.
I'm totally bullshitting, he dies. It's his last job for fuck's sake.

The first comercially available version of Tulpa with an English audio track is this German edit which is now considerably shorter and all but omits the two characters who generated the crazier dialogue.
What's left is clearly still barking, Tulpa Guy's scenes are intact and the deaths are gruesomely extreme, the film still stands as a great giallo but unfortunately nowhere near the magnificent lunacy witnessed at Frightfest.

An interlinking quartet of old-skool ghost stories each with an attempted modern flavour;
1. A scary cell phone gag with a laugh out loud ghost manifestation at the end.
2. A girl tears her eyes out in response to the worst CGI you've ever seen.
3. A flat declaration of unoriginality.
4. A bog-standard vengeful spirit. On a plane.
