D. Dumebi Egbufor,
When I started watching this film I had certain hopes for it that it sadly didn't really live up to. I loved the first Monsterland quite a bit. What won me over with the first one was the creativity behind the way the stories were told. The setting for it revolves around a man watching monster movies (the short stories being told) while the rest of the world around him was falling apart due to a monster invasion. From that point on I was hooked and knew I was in for a treat. I guess I was kinda hoping for something similar with this but such wasn't the case, just a frog leap from story to story which in itself isn't bad but just felt a little too in the norm for me.
As for the stories themselves they also felt like kind of a big step in a different direction than I was expecting. The first Monsterland for the most part told stories of monsters that were different and unique whereas this movie's longest stories stuck to things that were a bit cliche like vampires and werewolves. There were stories that I did enjoy like Wormbug & Brac Face. But the others felt more like they were catered more to an audience that would be into more of a dark horror setting.
Overall I feel like this anthology film has some fun parts to it for monster fans but it certainly isn't for everybody. If you like monsters I recommend seeing this at least once to see what you might think of it. It wasn't what I was expecting or hoping for but I am still glad I gave it a shot.
