The film picks up pretty much straight where the first one ended. We discover that the murderer has a whole abandoned hotel set up that is covered in death traps. The main character from the first film is also in this and we discover him trapped inside a box. He is able to escape but again he plays the hero and goes back to the hotel to save a woman who is trapped there.
There is a scene at the start of the film where there are hundreds of people in a room that is set up as a nightclub. They’re all enjoying themselves and then these blades come through the air twisting and they just cut everyone up into pieces. It’s an awful massacre.
What makes this film better than the first one is that because we’ve already had events play out, this film starts off with the action straight away. There’s not really a point in the film where you feel bored.
I wasn’t a huge fan of the main girl in this film but she was a lot smarter than the women in the first one. It always annoys me when horror films portray females as these dumb and stupid characters because we’re not like that.
Overall it is a great second instalment in the series and I think it was a little bit better than the first one.
A brilliant horror film that is intense from start to finish!
