This is probably twice as cheesy as the original but it continues right where it left of a year earlier, cuts out any irrelevant build up, and gives us plenty of action, several kills, classic slasher cliches, and a twist ending - what more do you need? It also stars Brandy and Jack Black, a token pop star who's big at the time and wants to begin a movie career, plus Jack Black who will look back at this and think 'what was I doing'?! You could compare it to Kelly Rowland and Johnny Depp's performance in a Nightmare on Elm Street, although the latter is a bit more credible. I love the setting for this, it's like the TV series Death in Paradise, whereby everyone on the island is either going to end up dead, or be the murderer. Of course we know that despite Jennifer Love Hewitt being the one the killer is after, that technically makes her the star, and the safest ass in the film. It's got all the ingredients I love about these type of movies, suspense, a memorable cast, an eerie setting, a good villain, and an enticement to watch it over and over again. It's around the era I first started watching horror movies and possibly what grew me more and more into an addiction for this genre. It's just a shame they never completed this series by making a memorable finale to the trilogy (only a straight to DVD episode which degrades the excitement of the previous two). I just suggest you sit back, relax, and enjoy the basic concept that is hooded killer playing cat and mouse with a fresh batch of teens - it's priceless fun!
