Before he was famous!By John Craig from Scotland , 02 Jun 2004
[Highly rated reviewer]Anyone expecting a re-run or a move-on from Wes Craven's classic had best avoid this one. The only good thing about it is that it obviously has a bigger budget, better actors, and the same dog from the original (in character, anyway). Although Mr Craven did direct it, it feels like a 'you make this sequel and we'll fund your next movie' job, ie, his heart wasn't in it and neither was his talent. There is the obligatory move to centre the action around a group of hapless teenagers, which was the 'new' thing for the early eighties, but we've all seen it since, and seen it much better executed.
Avoid like the hills.

Corny and and uninterestingBy goth (36 reviews) from Watford , 03 Feb 2013This film is SO corny and awful- no plot , didn't warrant an 18 rating - boring and uninteresting. Was hoping for much better
Rather tired nowBy a customer from Surrey , 10 Jul 2010The film is not a patch on the first one, and has an inevitability about it that fails to surprise the viewer. For anyone wanting a vintage slasher where kids in the desert get gored then its a reasonable offering.
The film is pretty slow paced, and the arrival of the crazies does little to up the tempo. The acting is mediocre, but to be fair the script and the plot leave little opportunity for acting talent (if there was any on the set in the first place).
Overall, its one to tick off the list and owes much to its famous predecessor.
