There was some good stuff to this one when it tried to. One of it's best features is the fact that there's a couple well-designed action scenes spread throughout that make for a rather entertaining element. The car chase is the most impressive, as the monster truck chasing them allows for some nice visuals coming out over the corn- rows and the cramped location make for a thrilling, exciting encounter. Others throughout the film, from the hotel confrontations and the resurrection in the hospital, make for some nice times here, though where the film gets the best action scenes are contained in the final half-hour. There's a great ritualistic ceremony that plays out from the set-up to the actions portrayed and the chase through the cornfields with the night-time setting being a big factor as well as the flowing water, the motorcycles brought in and the incessant laughter heard in the background of the whole sequence. The extended nature of it allows for plenty of running-and-hiding which makes it feel more tense than it should, and it kick-starts the second half rather nicely. Also found in the finale is the best part, the action-packed finish that has a lot going for it and definitely gets in some really great parts to it, from the revelation that comes as a total surprise to the brawling that occurs and much more, really gets a lot of points for it. The last plus to the film is the blood and gore, which are all combined together into the film's good parts. There wasn't a whole lot of flaws, but there was a couple big areas that don't work. One of the main ones is that the film just doesn't have a whole lot going on for it in the early goings. The fact that it's mostly a mystery as to what the source behind the strange visions are is the main reason as it has to build them up and then make them threatening and worthy of an investigation then have a rational outcome that plays into the rest of the film which it fails at doing. The mystery here almost feels like a back-story during the segment it's supposed to be the main focus as it spends most of the time intermingling the search with the townspeople meet-and-greet which makes the beginning play out really slowly and not that interesting. There's also the matter of the film's biggest problem in that so many of the scenes intended to be scary just fall flat. The segments wandering around in a deserted hallway in the hospital are prime choices but instead just show her walking forever through an empty place before someone jumps out at her and the amount of time wasted here is pretty big. The last flaw here is the fact that the film doesn't really tend to show the cult as something dangerous, which was always done in the past. Here, it barely even matters since the second half is all about the reformed relationship with the cult around the edges to provide an obstacle to overcome, barely making a dent that the others had successfully done well. This isn't as noticeable as the others and can be overlooked quite easily.
Rated R: Graphic Violence, Graphic Language, Nudity and a shadowy, mild sex scene
