WTF happened just now?
25 December 2007 | by fervour26See all my reviews

this movie was slower than freakin' 12 Angry Men. but at least 12 Angry Men had a god damn story line or climax. I am confused, a little angry, bewildered to the brink of exhaustion, and want to punch the sequel in its face. The first movie was incredible! it had a creepy element and included interested effects and top notch gore. this one's blood drive is dry as a whistle and the effects seem to be used as filler. actually, the whole movie seems to be a bunch of filler strung together with little scenes with the cool little demon and the actor from the first one, just to try and keep our attention. and THE ENDING. the ending is like me saying that my entire life did not matter when I spent my entire life walking in circles and pulling on my crank. so... my mind is completely numb and bleeding. thank you GATE TWO!
