Ceticultsot Beautiful, moving film.
Numerootno A story that's too fascinating to pass by...
Motompa Go in cold, and you're likely to emerge with your blood boiling. This has to be seen to be believed.
Aiden Melton The storyline feels a little thin and moth-eaten in parts but this sequel is plenty of fun.
slipknot-90722 If you're a true horror fan then you can appreciate the attempt at being somewhat original with this film. No they don't explain much backstory on the bye bye man character, but for this movie it's obviously not what the creators wanted to focus on. Perhaps they wanted to save that for a prequel!! Yes it has some poor CHI every now and again but I've definitely seen worse. As for the pace it's pretty good and the acting isn't the worst. It's a psychological thriller that doesn't make you feel like you'll miss the entire premise if you look away for a second. I don't know why this has such a poor rating because if you have the understanding that with all horror movies there is always going to be cliches then you will appreciate the film for what it is. A thriller. I personally was thrilled and even laugh a couple times which breaks up the monotony of tension. Good job to the director and writers.
mohawksissy I cannot imagine that any of these actors are ever offered work again after they did this film. This is one of those films where it says "movie budget = $500K" and they don't come close to breaking even. Rotten Tomatoes is going to have to allow for negative numbers so people can rank this honestly.
seantra-47781 I know this is a horror movie, therefore they always rate low. But... I don't see how this movie rates THIS LOW. I have seen some reviews by "professionals" who seem to think this movie is badly directed and paced. That is rubbish. The movie ticks along at a good speed, and I was entertained for the full 96 minutes. I will say the acting was only average in some parts ( I'm looking at you Cressida Bonas. Carrie Ann Moss also seemed a bit disinterested) At the end of the day though, the movie was much better than all of that other supernatural dribble that has flooded the market in recent years...One last thing that needs a mention is that it seemed to be sanitized a bit to get a pg13 rating, which hurt it a little but didn't ruin it as some have suggested. All in all, it's worth a look. You could do a LOT worse..
Erik_olsen83 I think this movie was well done it's not your typical horror but it did have its scary parts and kept me interested
