"It could have been worse."
3 stars

It ain't all bad.

Basically I quite like this film, for these reasons

- I enjoyed the continuation of characters (here the film follows Dr Loomins and Jamie Carruthers) that developed them more from the last movie.

- I fucking loved the ending.. I was the only one though.

- Even though Donald Pleasence was the same in all the films he was still great.

Other than that it stank like cheesy poofs.

But I still enjoyed it.. It is a good sequel as far as horror sequels go...

It could have been worse.
