[to Steve as he is held underground]
Hey, Steve! I've been thinking... we never had a chance to get to know each other. You know, I'm not such a bad guy once you get to know me. Here's a question: If a gardener with a big mouth is alone in the field being tortured and no-one has to hear him scream, does it still hurt?

"If a gardener with a big mouth is alone in the field being tortured and no-one has to hear him scream, does it still hurt?"
Extremely low ratings on film sites not only do not deter me from watching the movie, but on the contrary, they make me more curious. And quite often, watching these films turns out to be a good choice. This one is no exception. "Sometimes They Come Back... Again" (1996) is far from a masterpiece of cinema, and it's not even close to the top of the genre, but it is quite a decent low-budget horror and it is better than its predecessor. The story is interesting (understandably, since it's an adaptation of Stephen King), it has a nice atmosphere, it doesn't exaggerate with special effects (which is a common flaw of the genre), it holds attention from the beginning to the end and, although acting isn't particularly great, characters are quite believable. Alexis Arquette, sister of Patricia Arquette, while (s)he was still Patricia Arquette's brother, is rather creepy as the main villain and without her/him the movie would have lost much in effect.
