However, the sequel fails to deliver on the aspects that made the first film entertaining.

Absolutely, this was bordering on one of the worst movies I've seen in a long time.

Waste of time .

It robbed the first film of any form of mystery, through the use of unnecessary explanation for elements from the first, and, with the explanations, added in "twists" that just served to make the movie a plotless slog.

A lot of 'The Houses October Built 2' has really dull and going nowhere plot elements and often nonsensical and confusing character motivations, while too many of the things to make you shocked are far from creative or unsettling.

An entire hour goes by with absolutely nothing happening.

This one just seems like a way for the filmmakers to get paid to go on another Haunted House road trip, only with a much more flimsy and boring plot.

The first half of this one features them touring the different attractions, from the problem-solving experience that features an intriguing experience, the later showing in the house with all the distorted walls and decorations which has a full-on psychedelic experience and the interactive attraction with the bleeding victims has quite a lot of fun to it with the different activities featured throughout.

The sequel unfortunately is one of the worst movies I've ever seen.

That also makes what happens at the end all the more confusing since none of it really matters at all and their actions toward the group make no sense as it just comes off like torture with no buildup or purpose and really defeats the purpose of their actions.

Unfortunately, the places they visit are even more boring than in the first film because of a very weak premise involving one of the main characters.

An awful, boring, nonsensical, chore of a movie.

It was poorly done, predictable and thought it was a hell of a lot smarter than it actually was.

Slightly flawed but still enjoyable sequel .

Extremely boring.

But instead you just get to see these drawn out scenes for too long and it becomes a total snooze fest.

For some reason this one made me super uncomfortable and on the edge the whole time, in a good way.

Anything included to attempt to spice things up is overused and abused, most of the time to a pointless degree.

This movie is original and just like the first one enjoyable.

The chemistry is bland and unfocused.

I was actually looking forward to this so i decided to watch it last night, fell asleep about half an hour in, decided to come back to it tonight, literally didn't interest me a single bit, was browsing the web, messaging my girlfriend, playing an online casino thing, anything to drown that movie out.

That's it - it's just extremely boring.

Now last time it was a successful slow build, this time it's a very slow build with no real payoff.

Very slow, no real pay off at the end.

The first hour and a half of the movie was filler with absolutely no plot or purpose whatsoever.

After truly enjoyable first Hauses horror, this movie was really disappointing.

Bad thing is though that for that amount of time there's no story developing at all really.

Having survived their previous encounter, the group goes out once again to document haunted houses in order to deal with the trauma only for signs of their previous tortures to show up and get drawn into another terrifying battle with the deranged psychopathsOn the whole, this was quite the decent and enjoyable follow-up.

⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀For the last maybe 20 mins you'll get to see things unfold but unfortunately it's all rather goofy and uninteresting.

Basically horror attractions, which really do exist and I find fascinating.

This movie is as bland as water, in fact i'd rather sit and watch a cup of water for 2 hours than this garbage.

The follow up is a boring piece of crap.

People are delusional to have made this a 4.6*. One of the worst movies i've ever seen, so boring, uninteresting, uninspired.

Going on to the negatives, the story does feel over-stretched and some of it comes over as vague and under-explained in the last third where the film especially became duller, more predictable, more senseless and less unsettled and never gaining momentum.
