Ti West assumes the satirical tone, turns a boring, conservative and shallow idea into an unusual normcore nightmare and totally destroys the first film's mythology and proposal - which is great, because that thing sucked big time. It's a shame it's still so uneven.
Actually, surprising, almost, somewhat.... enjoyable. Kind of like a guilty pleasure, aiming along the lines of films such as 'Chopping Mall', 'Bride of Re-Animator', and a slew of other cheesey, schlocky, B-movies to which are abundant in terms of splatter, gross out shock appeal, and well, nothing more.
Ah Ti West. You're so talented when you're not restrained by a studio. This movie could have been a lot of fun, could have been a great throw back with a great twist, surpassing the original (of which I am not a fan), but here you have a mess. Just a huge mess...
Not bad, really. I loved the first one, and this is another nice flick that recalls the atmosphere of the eighties. Nostalgic, yes, sort of, but also very funny: a lot of blood, as you can imagine, gross humour and a straight forwarded plot without any importance...who cares when you have people puking blood like an hydrant?
