Rodo Sayagues directs Stephen Lang, Brendan Sexton III and Madelyn Grace in this horror thriller sequel where the deadly Blind Man has taken a young child in and raised her as his own… but can they survive an even nastier group of home invaders.
One of the most explicitly violent mainstream releases in a long old while – cruel, bleak and severing. The movie itself is not quite as enthralling as the first entry, and I would have personally preferred Jane Levy to somehow have been returned into the mix, but I get the feeling this might build-up a cult repute all of its own over time… it is that full-on in moments. Not sure how I feel about the softening of Stephen Lang’s bad guy… “You either die a villain, or live long enough to see yourself become the hero.” Just ask the velociraptors or T-800, I guess.
