This sequel takes a divergent path from the original. This one manages to integrate the point of view of the child, as well as that of the adults into the telling of this story.
If you haven’t seen the first, I strongly recommend seeing it before seeing the second, as there is a great deal of follow through from one movie to the others. However, the change in format makes it different enough to seem like a different movie.
A deputy from the first movie has started to do everything he can to prevent the tragedy from occurring again and again, but in the process meets a young woman on the run from her abusive husband with their two little boys.
I can’t say a lot more without giving up information on both movies, but it is definitely a movie worth seeing, if you’ve seen the first. Because of its reliance on seeing the first movie, I give it a 3 bloody kitties, a good movie, good for rewatch – but just not good enough to stand on its own.
