Don't Look in the Basement 2 (2015)

As I continue to debate my inner voices on what my next project should be, I still have a few movies to catch up on with reviews. Next up, is the 2015 sequel to a cult classic: Don’t Look in the Basement 2.

Plot/ In 1972, the patients, and doctors at Stephens Sanitarium were brutally murdered. Over forty years later, the only known survivor returns only to find the ghosts of the past have not been resting in peace.

After over 40-years, the 1972 cult classic Don't Look In The Basement finally gets a sequel. Unfortunately, it does not live up to the power of the source material. While there are some elements that were lacking in the original such as solid cinematography, decent performances, and a clear vision on what was to be accomplished, it lacks the grainy allure and low budget feel that etched the classic into the viewers mind. It also suffers from uneven pacing, uninteresting characters, and a storyline that was both cliché and predictable. Yes, there was some gore, but not enough to save this one. In the end, if like me, you are a fan of the original cult classic, you will likely be extremely disappointed. Stay away!
