A movie with a bad pun in the title should be destined to fail, and I know this will probably be an unpopular review, but I actually enjoy the hell out of this later sequel. It is only linked to the original film by an antique clock that sat in the Amity house, and while it has nothing else to do with the rest of the series, it does offer surprising gore, a decent pace, and it is entirely aware that it is not an important film while making no attempt to prove otherwise. What is the opposite of pretentious? Protentious? The film is protentious. There are plenty of "so bad it's good" moments between the deliciously over-the-top acting, clearly visible wire and FX work, and cheesy dialogue that make it difficult not to like. It also offers several simple but effective alternate timeline and reality sequences brought on by the evil clock that make smart use of the small budget. Ironically, this stupid cheapie Horror effort also draws from many classic Greek epic influences, including the young hero that must overcome insurmountable obstacles, the old sooth-sayer, the temptress, and others. It is by no means a good film, but its lighter tone mixed with tongue-in-cheek humor and gore make for an unexpectedly good time.
