Youre not alone, my friend.


I really loved the original, but I gotta agree I enjoyed this one much more. Likeable protagonist, much more menacing villains (Peter Drac was amazing), great atmosphere that matches the original, and a great soundtrack. A truly amazing sequel :)

Overall, I prefer the first film (mainly for the darker atmosphere and more bleaker, nihilistic tone), but I really loved this sequel as well (definitely better than most horror sequels).
