A decent sequel to the the greatest horror movie I ever watched. Like Peele's 'it', this is profound enough and multi-layered. Movies like this are rejuvenating and rewriting the horror genre for the times.
I wasn't a big fan of Jordan Peele's previous film, Get Out, although I certainly admired how he reformulated the tropes of the genre so as to suggest that just because the contemporary world gives the appearance of being a pseudo-post-racial society, it doesn't necessarily mean that that's true behind closed doors.

Another terrible Hollywood remake. This is nothing but an INSULT to the original Argentinean movie. It has none of the intrigue, intelligence and emotional tension of the original. The sentimentality feels superficial, the characters one-dimensional and the relationships contrived and forced. This movie is an example that you can't remake on-screen chemistry. Terrible !
