Even more boring than the first. It tries to be a little scary, funny and exciting, but succeeds in neither.
Even though it took away everything that was great with the first one and turned it into a cheap slasher, it's not too bad judged on its own merits.
As a cheap slasher, it actually works. Hiw Wes Craven could make this cheapo right after A Nightmare on Elm Street, will always be a mystery. But I did find myself having fun with with this.
It's been at least 12 years since I saw this. I don't remember much, but I remember being disappointed. Later I bought the Keith Emerson soundtrack which I've played a lot since then.
While rewatching this, the soundtrack now played like a familiar character, and added an extra level of enjoyment on my part. There's still quite a few things that don't work, but going in with different expectations (and my love for the soundtrack) made this a much better experience this second time around. Not sure if it would still hold up on repeat viewings though.
