Decent movie. Started out great in the town. All of the actors did an excellent job, but the son was always way too intense. His range in this movie is switched between petrified and extreme agony, with nothing in the middle. The biggest issues I had were the abrupt ending, and the lack of any meaningful story progression to the first movie.
Basically, this was DLC. You're going to show me the psychopathic hillbillies without giving me anything but a Mexican standoff? Not very interesting. Nothing new about the monsters, and nothing to make me care more about the family; it's just a few deleted scenes from the first and a set up Murphy's character. And they should have gone darker. What are they gonna do about the dead son's corpse being basically an alter for the hero character lol.
