    Solid first half.  Weaker second half.

    I was worried this would suck for a couple reasons: 1) Wes Craven wasn’t behind it (for obvious reasons).  2) it was dumped in the dead zone month where 99% of horror films released in January suck.  3) It’s the 5th film in the franchise.  

    But it manages to beat the odds and what we have is a fun and clever installment that’s quite possibly the best sequel in the franchise.  Almost reaching levels of the first, but not quite hitting the mark.  Several fun surprises throughout.  I hope they continue the franchise.  It’d be cool to see more with this new group.
