The second it started I could tell it was a slight improvement, because they had a bigger budget ($3 million) so it made them be able to have a better camera, but it's still not that good of quality sadly. Anyway, this is almost exactly the same as the first except worse because the actors give worse performances, it's unnecessarily a prequel, and there's more stupid crap and less tension. But again, the ending redeemed it to a 1.5/10. I remember thinking I didn't wanna see a third because these two were so nicely wrapped together (they connected this one by the end, REALLY well!) I may have forgotten to mention in the review of the first, so I'll just say here that I haven't been scared in either of these movies. A couple times I go like oh what, and think there's something scary coming, and that's how I get ready for it, but there never is. I also hate how it will kind of abruptly stop during the scary parts, like why stop when your on the way, and almost there, to scaring me?
