woeful compared to part one
17 July 2011 | by scaderemadeSee all my reviews

Compared to the wonderful La herencia Valdemar, this is a bit of a dogs dinner..I happened to be looking forward to this direct continuation of the first film and was left very disappointed by it..

The story of the Hp Lovecraft Call of .. mixed with two other story's I believe is really so badly edited and cut that you are absolutely left at a loss as to why you should care for any of the characters and be interested in what comes next..as usually this entails another merging of characters story lines which serve only to confuse rather than enlighten..

the first film is a brilliant piece and one I savored..this is like a poor desert follow up to a master chef meal
