Lacking the suspense of the first Phobia
18 February 2010 | by eddaxSee all my reviews

I quite liked Phobia so I was quite disappointed that this sequel, with five segments by different directors, doesn't come close to matching the first.

What I especially liked about Phobia was that three out of the four stories had good suspense. For horrors with relatively low budgets, the way to go is definitely suspense over special effects. With Phobia 2, none of the stories had any level of suspense close to the first's. The first segment was boring, the second was unoriginal, as was the third (zombies!) but it was still kinda cool, the fourth was kinda messy, and the last story was... fun, actually, since it was humorous and had a couple of twists in it.

I'll give the movie a marginal thumbs-up based on the third and last stories.
