| Honestly, A Good Horror Film!
I'm a sucker for supernatural/monster based Horror movies. And the "Wailer 2" just happened to catch my eye at a local video store. So I decided to check it out. (Hey, it was Halloween, so I HAD to watch a few things to fit the celebration!) Now, I can't speak about comparing the sequel to the first film, because I have no access to the first, but the second plays out like a solid movie of its own right. Actually... I shouldn't just say it's a solid movie; it's actually a fun and spooky movie! The thing I appreciated the most was the cinematography. The movie, entire, looked fantastic. Even nighttime scenes were clear to see, and the visuals worked wonders. (I especially loved the "Monster Vision" sequences.) Being a monster fan, this film's possessed lovely certainly fit the bill. Alternately alluring one moment, positively demonic the next, this is a monster that SHOULD be earning its name in the list of legendary film beasties.

But what about the other film elements, such as acting and effects? I did subtract one star for the acting, but to be fair, the roles I didn't feel that convinced by were bit characters. So you only have to deal with their ham-fisted acting for a few minutes at a time. The main characters worked well, and you actually did get a sense of sympathy for their plights.

The effects were great, for a low budget affair. Oh, and I LOVED the scenery. The setting of Mexico worked well, and didn't feel out of place as a viewing opportunity at all.

So, if one were to take some minor acting snafus aside, they'd come up with a fun and frightful Horror film that deserves a viewing.
