Ambiance
Very atmospheric and filled with jump scare, this new addition in the franchise will have you on the edge of your seat, but not for the right reasons. The jump scares are in fact rarely earned. Some of these moments contain little to no build-up. This was also a problem in Sadako 3D, the previous installment. Rarely are these scenes concluded. We just move on with the script, without consequences.
The story is more confusing than ever. It is nothing but a succession of vignettes that don’t see to affect one another. Random characters with a short lifespan are introduced only to die by the hand of possessed people. We constantly orbit around what we like about this franchise, without ever finding it. Don’t wait for a ghost coming out of a flat screen. This isn’t what the movie is about...
Sadako 3D 2 is about possessed people, spooky drawings and constant flashbacks. If this combination of elements is familiar, it’s only because they are boring low budget horror movie clichés. The studio took an attractive gimmick and reduced it to ashes. A spoon-fed procedural then takes us by the hand and reveals a story so complicated it has us look at the clock all through the last act.
