It's strange, a little slow, and really goofy in places, but also interesting enough. Worth a watch when you're bored.
This is a sequel to The Eye only in the loosest terms. It has none of the real impact that the first had. It relies on loud noises and jump scares way too much, and they story makes very little sense. Generally, the premise is workable, but there are too many outrights stupid moments and just bad plot decisions throughout.
The first Eye movie was terrifying and perfectly paced. This one takes a different direction with more action and less creep and lots of jump scares, so it doesn't quite live up to the first, but it's also meant to be a different type of movie. A lot of the concepts were really scary and clever too.
It had its share of sufficiently creepy moments.
