Weak and utterly inferior sequel effort
31 August 2012 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

Agreeing to travel to Scotland on a missionary trip, a Christian couple find their host family part of a clan that practices Pagan rituals and worship that are intending on using them for one of their next ceremonies.

This here was a really poor and rather frustrating sequel that doesn't really have as much going for it as it's predecessor, though even taking it on it's own terms it's not that great. One of the film's main flaws is it's inherent inability to really get itself in a groove as to where it wants to go, whether this is about the pagan society or the different customs on the island corrupting the couple. This makes the film wander around and showing them experiencing the different ways of life there or showcasing how the locals live, never once preparing for the ceremony, what exactly it entails or why the whole affair is to go down. The one explanation given isn't anything to really get worked up over, either, as it's just plain idiotic and takes away from the films' connection to the original as well. With a dreary pace really only getting interrupted in the final minutes, this only has bounteous nudity to get it going, leaving this one a colossal disappointment.

Rated R: Full Nudity, Language, Violence and a sex scene
