Sequel to "The Gathering"
14 January 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This movie purports to take up where the first, excellent, movie left off, but there are a number of problems. The setting is different from the town and Thornton Industries' building right down to the Thornton house. Yes, people notice when it is this obvious. Second, the storyline meanders wildly from the plot of the original movie, changing the personalities of key characters for inane reasons. Efram Zimbalist Jr., who is introduced in this sequel to play a love interest to Kate, is believed by some of the family members to be after the old man's company, which divides the siblings regarding his presence. It's all smoothed out in the end (one way or the other is for you to ascertain) but no solid reason is really given for the conclusion reached by the family as to whether they would trust him.

This sequel is as good as most sequels, which means it is not very, relying on the first movie's coattails to win its audience, but don't bother. It's daddy was a winner and once you've seen The Gathering, you don't want to spoil it with the sequel.

For your information, Warner Brothers' Archive Collection bundles these two for sale at a reasonable price and the picture quality is quite good. Amazon has them for sale and don't worry about the caveat that it may not play in your machine. It played like any standard DVD in my Sony. Buy it and at least enjoy the first movie.
