Doesn't have the same spark, but pretty good sequel
9 November 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Most sequels come out a year or two after their successful predecessors because the studio sees it as a franchise. Then if that film does well more are to come. Occasionally a few years pass before another installment is made, which is tricky because sometimes by that point people may have lost interest. The first 'Unnamable' was a hit on video, but hardly warranted a second part, but it got one anyway. Often times the sequel is made so many years later as an attempt to milk more money out of the name. Some filmmakers just never learn, but of course there are exceptions to every rule. Anthony Hickox made a slam dunk with the first 'Waxwork' film and it has many fans, but was there were really room or need for a second movie?

Pros: Cast does a pretty good job. Another fabulous score. Great production design, better than in the first. Stellar make-up and special effects work. Though it doesn't have as much, there is still some good campy humor in the mix. Moves at a decent pace. Some excellent set pieces. Plenty of neat homages to classic Horror films like 'Dawn of the Dead' and 'The Haunting.'

Cons: Slim on plot this time. Again you won't be frightened by any of this. Pace is uneven at times. Some sections of the film, mostly the medieval segment go on longer than they should have.

Final thoughts: For the most this sequel stays afloat and is a worthy continuation of the story. True there was no need for this film to exist since the story pretty much ended in the previous film, but Anthony Hickox and Co. make it work. Just don't expect something on par with part 1 and this should be a pleasant experience.

My rating: 3.5/5
