i'm always wary of sequels (especially direct-to-video sequels) and hesitantly rented this film. now, i wasn't expecting it to even come close to the original (which is one of my personal favorites), but god forbid i wasn't expecting it to be THIS bad!
First of all, the director does nothing but rip off Sam Raimi's old evil dead directing style, but in a second rate style. the most inspired bit is the beginning movie-within-a-movie that has a cameo by the great Bruce Cambell.
the special effects, while appropriately gory, look really cheap and dumb. also, all the point of view camera angles of everything from hat bills to fans got on my nerves and made me sea sick.
the plot is really poorly done and the film doesn't seem to go anywhere. the acting is okay with an odd turn by Robert Patrick (the evil terminator in T2) who seems to be slumming big time in this film.
steer clear of this one and instead go to the well done third film called the hangman's daughter. act like this film never exists.
