I expected garbage and was pleasantly surprised - much better than it's predecessor - I recommend you give this one a watch ....

In this one I have an opposite opinion to JEM :) ...I found it boring and annoying, as Flanagan tries to immitate Wan with that retro stuff, except that this one was empty & predictably safe family movie. I liked director before - with great flicks Absentia & Oculus, but all what he releases after is commercial crap for me - 3 equally bland movies in 1 year (Ouija, Hush, Before I Wake).
I even liked that 2 yrs older Ouija precedessor better than this, at least it was just plain teen-horror flick, that wasn´t trying to act like something special. ;)
4/10

Flanagan just came onto my radar. Will do my usual op and try and work through the films by this director in chronological order. Might be a couple of weeks before I get to this but wouldn't have thought much longer as I already made a start. Just had a slightly confusing prequel experience (on a franchise) so glad it is confirmed this one is such, therefore, I will watch it logically before the original, thanks.
