According to reports in the press, the film used 70,000 gallons of fake blood. In an interview, Fede Alvarez said they used 50,000 gallons for the final scene alone. This is compared to the 200-300 gallons used in the original. See more »

I have seen some terrible movies in my time, and when I say terrible, I mean any movie that ever starred Billy Blanks or Jalal Merhi terrible, so I want you to fully understand my meaning when I say this movie is absolutely awful. It might have been the fact that I am such a fan of the original series, and bought into the nonsense hype for the film, and was soundly and brutally disappointed.
Everything about this film is terrible. There is not a single thing about it that is actually scary, and is in fact, so stupid in its presentation that any notion of fear is quickly pushed aside to the overwhelming "Seriously??!!" that you scream for the entire 90 minutes. The characters themselves are so one-dimensional and stupid, that it is impossible to feel anything for their violent ends other then elation. This is one of the few movies where I was rooting for the demon. The whole movie is sloppy in its presentation, with more detail being given to fancy murder scenes that hope to distract the viewer with hyper gore so they'll ignore how bad and stupid the entire story is.
Don't bother with this film. Don't even rent it. Just forget it exists. Hopefully the rest of the world will too.
