2:42 I’ve not seen this one, so really can lean in to the ‘what is going to kill them’ Casualty game.
8:08 “I was having a feeling of deja vu, but for something that hasn’t happened yet.”
12:02 If I see a kid crying as they get off the rollercoaster before me, I’m not going on.
25:40 Woohoo, ‘previously on…’
33:40 I do not understand tanning. So boring. And bad for you, obviously.
44:22 Ooh, a new twist, trying to unravel photographic evidence.
47:57 That was gross.
52:02 She doesn’t really fit the name Wendy.
55:54 Welp, gyms are ruined for me now too!
58:00 Shooting pigeons with a nail gun! Don’t tell Mr C.
1:09:35 She doesn’t have a lot of luck getting through to people.
1:29:00 Great ending.


I was expecting this to be a really poor sequel and sure, by this time, the movies are Not Good. But they are fun horror films and this one is up there with the previous but for different reasons. The relationship between the main two characters grows gradually which gives you a really good basis for the rest of the adventures. The deaths are pretty gruesome, that tanning bed scene is horrific, but quite fun the way it cuts to the coffins.

There’s an added bonus too in the deaths being foretold in the photographs, so people being able to try and figure out what happens rather than relying on one person having visions. That makes it a bit more accessible and easier to follow. Ultimately you won’t catch me recommending these films to anyone but I’m glad I got to see it.

Rating: 4 / 5
