It starts with a flashback. Schoolgirls. And the character from the original, and her sister, and sudden death... you'd think! But that's just the introductory scare. Fear, is bound to be waltzing through the hallways soon again. The house, is back.
Though I don't remember the original much at this point, it feels very reminiscent somehow, the same thing all over again, but with a new twist; more characters involved. Two separate timelines running parallel through the movie, following two different sets of characters, though that might not be entirely clear until the very end. Overall it was nicely directed. Creepy, but not really scary. Occasionally corny acting. Some cool effects. Not bad, but not one of the greatest scary movies out there. I imagine the first, and first and foremost the originals, are on a whole other level!
rated 3/5: not bad
