Effectively scary sequel
4 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A surprisingly good followup to the 1991 TV adaptation of a Stephen King short story, 1996's SOMETIMES 2 follows the plot of the original closely, but is perhaps even scarier this time around. A man haunted by the death of his sister at the hands of three brutes 30 years before returners to his hometown , nubile daughter in tow. The three brutes return from the dead as demons and plan to do in the guy's daughter. Michael Gross, the father from that old Michael J. Fox show, plays the dad and pre-stardom Hillary Swank plays the daughter in peril. A rather strange Arquette family member, Alexis, plays the sinister leader of the demonic trio. And believe me when I say, he is truly creepy. There is plenty of blood and violence, so the "R" rating slapped on this STV is well deserved. Enjoy. I saw it again recently and it has lost none of its power.
