Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (4 ):
Kids say (5 ):

In trying to combine topical issues of high schoolers and a supernatural adventure, the filmmakers have crafted a plot-heavy, densely populated tale with overworked messages and generic characters. The story flips from high school to the cemetery to Nebulosa's headquarters to Dixie's father's mortuary and back again; nothing much connects the scenes. It doesn't work as a scary movie; it's not a clever high school cautionary tale. The attempts at humor emanating from the stereotypical mean girls and from Dixie's dicey relationship with her zombie accomplices fall flat. In fact, Gonner, one of the two zombie-friend holdovers from the original movie, is almost unintelligible here. Dixie does, however, learn a lesson about accepting everyone, but even that is tainted when it's used as motivation to win an election. Little to recommend.
