Well, this one is lackluster too, I'm afraid, and it made us sad.
Forget the 3D aspect of the movie, as it was an afterthought (like it seems to be with most 3D movies these days), and it ended up being nothing more than a marketing gimmick. It did nothing to enhance the movie or make it more fun. At all.
So forget about that mess, and let's concentrate on the plot.
On the way to the hospital (why?), the Cop and Paramedic talk about souls or something, only to have Abel sit up and slash the paramedics throat with a hidden knife. Yeah. The ambulance flips over due to the knife violence, and Abel escapes into the river, as do all of our hopes for this movie... and that's just the opening sequence.
16 years later (of course), we find out that 7 kids were born on the very night that the Riverton Ripper died/didn't die, and every year they have a party to celebrate the anniversary of his death/un-death. As if you didn't see it coming, the "Riverton Seven" are killed off one by one, and of course the creepy kid of the school gets blamed. The creepy kid, Bug, has to figure out the mystery of Abel the Ripper, and why he can't get laid by the hottest girl in school. 14 plot twists later, it all makes perfect sense, and yet no sense at all... Come on... baby and big sister... Bug and his cranky older sister... Think hard.
|The knife is family.|
Hollywood seems to be fine with making half-assed movies like this and marketing them to Teens, whom they obviously think are complete morons. I mean, they're coming out with a Rubik's Cube movie after all... Fine, Teens can suffer through sub-par crap easier than an older audience can, but still, can't they make the crap less crappy at least? I can hate on Twilight for everything that it is (and never could be), but that movie still make more sense than this one ever could. I just said that. Trust me, that's saying a lot.
|My, what big hands you have... for a small Teenager.|
Whatever the reason, we're the ones suffering for it.
|Yeah, we want vengeance too.|
Just skip it and know you're better off for doing so.
