Revealing mistakes: When kids who got attacked inside Satan's Den come back with the police they are in the back seat of the police car and get out at the same time the cop exits from the driver's seat. This should not be possible since the rear passenger doors of police cars are designed to only be opened from the outside.See more »

Cheesy creature feature, 25 August 2015
Author: GL84 from Los Angeles, Ca

Working at their friends' carnival, two friends Spookhouse Show act is found to be successful when diminutive, rat-like creatures invade the carnival forcing them to use the only weapon at their disposal to combat the creatures.

There's a lot to like about this as it turned out to be a superior sequel. What really works well in this one is the increase of screen- time here for the creatures, which is a fixed problem from the first one. Starting with the chase through the forest and arriving at the auto-yard stalking in here, there's plenty to like here as other action scenes here make this one so much fun. There's an incredibly fun introductory scene of the creatures here at the carnival where they appear in the attraction to the bewilderment of the guests on the ride causing all sorts of havoc with the true ride which is quite cheesy fun throughout here which follows up the scenes around the carnival. Seeing the creatures going around the different booths, attractions and meeting up with the patrons here while staying incognito is a lot of fun seeing how this one manages to interject the goofy fun of the creatures against the atmosphere of the carnival which is a healthy contrast. This is carried over into the film's highlight scenes where the massive version of the creature runs wild at the carnival and begins attacking both the concession stands as well as other patrons and forcing the group to fight off the beast using a variety of impressive and enjoyable tactics, generating a lot of action and a nice bit of cheese here with how the finale plays out. Along with the overall impressive look of the creatures, the fact that there's a rather healthy body count here that does lead into the film's few small problems here. This is the fact that there's not a great deal of blood or gore here in the kills, as despite the large body count there's a severely lacking amount here beyond a few scratches which would've helped this one quite a bit. As well, there's also the thread here about how good the business at the carnival is suddenly doing is confusingly dropped here, as the financial problems were so strongly hinted at in the first half that to drop it out of the film when that very problem is finally fixed makes no sense, nor does not following through on what is causing that specific incident despite how word-of-mouth is telling the authorities in charge. While the cheese might be something that turns off a few aren't into it, what really lowers this one is the rather bland and lifeless scenes here of this one really doing nothing while having fun at the carnival, as these are just boring, drawn-out and really not all that interesting showing the group not really doing anything in this section. All it does is make the film last longer than the original, and it's not that interesting due to that. Otherwise, this one was quite enjoyable.

Rated R: Violence and Language.
