After watching the first movie, I was extraordinarily excited to see a second movie coming out. By that point, Ali Larter had made somewhat of a name for herself in lower budget movies and I was pleased to see that she would be making a comeback, as well as Tony Todd.
The beginning death scene in this movie is brilliant because everyone fears a freak accident turning a highway collision into a massive holocaust-like death scene. The movie flows extremely well, for a horror movie, although the only reason anyone has to watch it is the cool death sequences since the acting was on par with something along the lines of my middle school production of the Crucible.
I found it quite amazing how they managed to link the first two movies together through missed chance encounters. Actually, ridiculous is more like it.
