Where the original was semi-serious in how it handled its characters and played it straighter in scares, this sequel is purely about its playful death sequences. But by embracing a silly cheesiness-- "They're going to be killed by pigeons!"-- for a more lighthearted time doesn't really save this film's repetitive and shallow nature, feeling more like a dumb teenage crowd pleaser without a heart and soul. Artificial.
It's not without a certain ridiculous charm. Really, it's a movie that only exists so that children can be squished with large panes of glass. At least there's an acknowledgement of the simple pleasures.
