I didn't care for the first one. The backstory is so formulaic that for all intents and purposes, it might as well have been a remake. Now, that doesn't really bother me (though I could have done without the "IT'S NOT A REMAKE, IT'S NOT A SEQUEL, AND IT'S NOT BASED ON A JAPANESE ONE!" garbage selling point). My real issue with this one is that it just tries too hard - the performances are overwrought (save for the heroine), and the movie itself is just a loud mess. Don't get me wrong, I love deformed slashers as much as the next guy, but I wouldn't mind if the buried the Hatchet franchise.
