#738 Halloween 2017: Curse II The Bite (1989)

Curse II: The Bite joins Halloween III, C.H.U.D. II and House III as horror sequels that have absolutely nothing to do with the original. It’s also joins the endless list of sequels that fall behind the original.

While I don’t usually bother to comment any technical details, I have to say I was distracted by the overall look and feel of the movie. Although shot in New Mexico, the movie just somehow gives a strange vibe of being instead an aussie movie shot in the Outback.

The movie changes from showing good potential to a slight disappointment multiple times, until the last 15 awesome minutes of the movie. Without giving away any spoilers, this is one of the most intensive and visually stunning effects rumble I’ve seen, good enough to warrant watching the movie and definitely pay off the time invested in watching the movie, with interest.

The Curse series spawned even two more similar, independent sequels, released in 1991 and 1993 respectively.
