Terror comes ripping right through the silver screen in this sequel that picks up exactly where Tobe Hooper's shocking 1974 classic left off. For decades, people in Newt, Texas, had been vanishing into thin air. When a horrified young girl escaped from the Sawyer house after seeing her friends butchered like cattle, the townspeople's worst fears about the reclusive clan were confirmed. Enraged, the locals formed a mob, burned down the blood-soaked abattoir, and methodically killed every member of the family. But in the blazing chaos of that fateful night, one of the Sawyers slipped away into the darkness. For decades it seemed as if the nightmare had ended. But when a young woman named Heather Miller (Alexandra Daddario) receives word that her distant grandmother has passed away, willing her a secluded Victorian mansion in the Texas desert, the discovery of a dark secret hidden deep in the cellar reveals the Sawyer's legacy of evil lives on. ~ Jason Buchanan, Rovi
The first half is typical horror "line up young people for the slasher" time. But the second half is really good! Suspenseful, interesting, takes a nice turn and loved the ending!
Overall, not as good as it could've been but better than expected.
Typical horror movie for the first hour, then at the end goes into an totally rediculous direction. Not believable, but somewhat watchable. Characters like in most slasher movies are unlikeable so you dont really care much when they die.
