Coming nine years after the original, this supernatural horror sequel is a competently made but uninspired effort. Gore fans should dig it.
Surviving kids are sent to live in a nearby town, including brooding Micah (Ryan Bollman), who’s taken in by lovely innkeeper Rosalind Allen. A journalist (Terence Knox) is driving by when he sniffs out an exploitable story. He’s traveling with uppity son Paul Scherrer, who has little affection for his old man.
Adults are again murdered in grisly fashion, some by supernatural forces (a few represented by nice visual effects reminiscent of Wolfen), some by the deranged kids led by Micah.
Lensing on North Carolina locations (subbing for Nebraska) is well done, with director David Price (son of industry vet Frank Price) keeping the picture chugging along even when the script becomes risible.
