However, Cronenberg did not succeed in creating the next masterpiece. The story is much more accessible, even if it would like to be more complex. Nevertheless, the camerawork is once again particularly well done. Some scenes are questionably justified, although a certain provocation is to be expected. As always, Mia Goth is beyond reproach. Skarsgård is once again better off away from the mainstream. I rarely write reviews that are too long, because I'm usually quite sure of myself; here I remain ambivalent. And I actually like that. Unfortunately, the movie gets lost at times and that's a shame, it could have been a little shorter.
The sound alone in the theater is to die for and confirms that this film belongs on the big screen. The film itself fits into the 2013 direction of the Evil Dead franchise and is a similar terror tour without mercy in a claustrophobic setting. The actors are convincing all along the line, there are few breathers, which hardly reduce the tension. A worthy sequel.
