The Awful Curse II: It Certainly BITES alright !!
19 January 2010 | by homecoming8See all my reviews

1986's The Curse (a.k.a. The Farm) with Will Wheaton became something of a cult-classic when it was released on video. Curse II: The Bite has absolutely nothing to do with the original, for commercial reasons only it was named Curse II. That is pretty bad to begin with, but so is the entire movie. Jill Schoelen played a good role in 1987's The Stepfather but here she is kind of lost. So is the rest of the fairly unknown cast, the story just goes nowhere. It becomes boring after half an hour and what follows is rather stupid. It all makes no sense at all. Is there a positive thing about Curse II ? Yes, it's the special effects make-up from Screaming Mad George. Unfortunately you'll have to wait until the last 10 minutes but there are some great effects. Sadly they're not scary because of the ridiculous story, but they are worth watching. But that means you have to pass the other 80 minutes without falling asleep. Good luck on that one !!
