Don't watch it alone...it truly delivers!
17 January 2017 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I was not expecting a good film. I was expecting, as usual with sequels especially in the horror genre, a mediocre but entertaining film,..could not have been more wrong in watching this one by my self ... Big Mistake!

The story starts out slow, but midway through it picks up and turns into an intense creep fest.

Without giving too much away all i can say is that this installment is surprisingly good and even better than the original, its smart in using tactics and angles to creep you out!

Strong story with good acting always elevates cinematic projects like this, but what truly did it for me is that it sort of defied some horror basics and played by the "horror movie rules" by adding a smart direction to it.

Its an excellent horror film that does not rely on a heavy R rating and gore/violence to deliver chills, now that is smart.

Do not watch this movie alone.

Final grade, B+
