Rather uninspired and lesser sequel
30 January 2014 | by (Los Angeles, Ca) – See all my reviews

After hearing of the disappearance of the victims at the rest stop, his brother and friends journey out to find him only to come across the same supernaturally-powered killer and must try to put an end to his reign of terror at before others fall victim to his wrath.

This here turned out to be a thoroughly uninviting mess, literally filled with lots of different issues that are nowhere near interesting enough to really carry itself out of the mire it utilized previously in the original. One of the biggest issues here is the fact that it gives the killer a decided supernatural presence, complete with loony back-story and motivation, which isn't a threatening motivation for a killer and makes no sense as, in part 1, it was merely hinted at and clashes now with the realism depicted there. As well, this one tends to trade in confrontations with the killer for having the group wander around trying to investigate what's going on and leading to large sections of time without anything going on, leading to even more problems with the boredom setting in at the worst times. While the gore and violence present do make for some good times and it's got a tense scene or two, it's not enough to mask the overwhelming flaws present.

Rated Unrated/R: Graphic Language, Graphic Violence and Brief Nudity.
