Katt was so much fun in what was a difficult part, considering the tonal aftershocks of the first film. Here, I was looking forward to seeing what Roger Cobb might be stuck with as he has a wife and child in this sequel. I was wondering if the family would be encountering otherworldly monsters in rooms throughout the ancestral home. Instead we get Katt for ten minutes! He's offed in a car explosion due to a crash which puts his daughter in a wheelchair and leaves the wife in emotional tatters. The plot ultimately includes a house with ties to some sort of blood oath and ancient spirits. There's a Native American named Ezra (Ned Romero), a friend of Roger's and his father's. He knows of the spirits which thrive in the home of Roger. Roger has a younger brother (Scott Buckholter) with nefarious ties to the Mafia (!), needing the house due to promises made to the crooks.
Ten minutes. Takes the wind out of the sails indeed. Not even enough time to establish his character. He's likable, but ten minutes just isn't enough time. I mean, come on! I guess he was hired for the name on the poster. Missed chance to really give this sequel a veteran presence. I mean, he was working on television mostly at the time, could the production not throw some coin his way? Was he so unwilling to participate to an entire film? Was there no intention to feature him from the onset of the sequel's genesis?

Doctor Gogol: Did you ever hear of Galatea?
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: Gala - who? Not wanting a statue of him, are you?
Doctor Gogol: I don't want a statue of Galatea. You see, she was a statue herself. Pygmalion formed her. Out of marble, not wax. And then she came to life in his arms.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [calling to his assistant] Start the motor, Henry. There's queer people on the streets of Montmartre at this time of night.
Doctor Gogol: [handing him his card] Here, a hundred francs if you deliver the statue to my house.
Lavin - Waxworks Proprietor: [reading card] It's a go, Dr. Go... gol. First thing in the morning.
