Terrible Screenplay, 11 February 2010
Author: Claudio Carvalho from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

The FBI Agent Maya (Tessie Santiago) has developed the ability of psychically connect with other people after being murdered six times and brought back to live by the sadistic serial-killer Cusp. Now she is tracking down the infamous criminal through his mind using a device to protect herself but after an unsuccessful manhunt, she quits the FBI. One year later, when the niece of Sheriff Harris (Chris Bruno) is abducted by Cusp, Maya's former chief Kassel (Michael Flynn) summons her back to the investigation. Maya teams up with Harris trying to save his niece Penelope (Amee Walden), but her time is short and she must risk her own safety to help the young woman.

"The Cell 2" uses the idea of the average "The Cell" combined to these sadistic movies of torture like "Saw" franchise, but the result is weaker than the foregoing films. First, the screenplay is terrible, with many clichés and holes and awful characters. The restricted budget associated to the reasonable acting make this direct to DVD movie forgettable and a waste of time. My vote is four.

Title (Brazil): "A Cela 2" ("The Cell 2")
