The clever meta trap­pings running through the 2015 orig­i­nal are posted miss­ing; this is a much more stripped-back, straight­for­ward tale with few sur­prises.

An open cli­max sug­gests a third en­try is on the cards but it al­ready feels like enough is enough – un­less braver creative choices are made.

The first movie, and un­nerv­ing modern flicks like Joe Dante’s The Hole and cult clas­sic The Mon­ster Squad, did a much more ef­fec­tive job of de­liv­er­ing fam­i­lyfriendly scares.
