Wes Craven would like the audience to think they're having a nightmarish good time, but I don't recall repeated internal urgings to run screaming from the theater in unstoppable bad movie agony in the recipe for fun.
Gratuitous, slow-as-molasses and interminably dull-witted; this is a horror movie for no one. Dialogue runs the gambit from "Shitman the Barbarian" to "smelling like shit" in a crappy stinker where even the cameraman blows.
This hurry-up sequel delivers the same brand of paranoid, blood-covered, barely clinging-to-an-R-rating action as in '06, featuring a similar pack of desert-dwelling super freaks who wreak murderous havoc on unsuspecting visitors.
It's all just far too Wes Craven for its own good. He gave Aja free rein to innovate, but as he writes this sequel he rests on every single genre cliché because he doesn't understand that they're still clichés even if he did invent them.
