Clint Says: Don't even bother
I am so bummed that this movie is such a bust. When I saw the trailer for the first movie in this franchise I thought it looked kind of silly, but then I saw the movie and was blown away at how scary it was and how amazing the twist at the end was. I never saw it coming, and it was fantastic.
This second installment basically takes the awesome ending of the first, crumples it up, tosses it in the trash, and goes full tilt towards the ridiculous. Instead of leaving it alone, or working to come up with a plot that tied in well to the first film, the studio just went with a mind-numbingly stupid script in order to do a quick cash grab.
Everything about this film is bad. The acting is cringe-worthy, the dialogue is boring and predictable, and in nearly 90 minutes I was scared maybe two times. The whole premise of this movie is utterly useless, and not even remotely worth your time or money. If you want to see a great horror flick, rent THE BOY. Now, that is how a horror movie should be.
