Plot: a young mother and her twin boys move into a house marked for death


I’m going to give this movie away right now.  So,

******SPOILERS AHEAD******



This sequel has nothing to do with the first movie and can be seen without seeing the first one.  This movie is about twin boys, Zach and Dylan.  Dylan is the good twin and Zach is a frickin’ little brat.  For some reason, Dylan is being haunted by these children who want him to do things.  But he’s the good one, so he doesn’t want to.  In the process, Zach gets jealous of Dylan and his ghosts and insists to see them for himself.  Which we can only assume is what they’ve always wanted.  The brat.  He will do their bidding and the bidding of the monster, Bughuul.

There’s likable characters in this movie, but they all do a lot of nonsensical shit.  Why would the boy run into the decrepit church of all places?  At the end, why don’t they run for his truck instead of running to the corn?  And at the very end, why was the Bughuul there?  He can’t get the deputy on his own can he?  Because if he can, that’s just breaking all the rules.  And the rules aren’t even that great to begin with.

There’s a dramatic side story, too, about how the father, who is a dick, wants to take the boys from the mother.  It pisses you off.  So, at the end of the movie you’re pissed off twice: once in horror and once in drama.

Our score: 31.  We do not recommend this sequel.
