Better as a stand alone than a sequel

"When a couple of Goth teens are murdered as they videotape their favorite make out spot, a team of archeologists are called in to identify the teens and gain clues to their murder. Met with hostility by the town, they discover four graves on the murder site, and then must unlock that mystery as well.
While the movie has the fun energy level and cheesy special effects that we've come to know and love from Full Moon, this story has more plot holes than cohesive plot threads. For example, in Witchouse, Lilith LeFey was brought back to live of the 300 year anniversary of her murder. However, This movie gives the date of her death as 1826. the math doesn't hold up. The ending, also, gave me a massive headache. I was left staring at the screen and wondering what the heck happened. It just didn't make sense and didn't flow with the rest of the film. Also, the dead Goth teens are what brought the team to town are mentioned only in the beginning and then ignored for the last hour of film.
My only other complaint involves part of the film's style. This came out right after the first Blair Witch film, so large chunks of this film are shown only through a home video camera, in a parody of the other film's style. Full Moon is best when it's original, not when it's copying someone else.
Yes, there are better horror films and there are many horror movies that are much, much worse. Yet, if you're looking for a film that's entertaining and you don't think the story through to much, it's definitely fun.
I hated the first one, but I liked this one...

"J.R. Bookwalter took the hand Full Moon dealt him and made a NON SEQUEL to the first movie of the same name. I felt this worked SO much better. The effects work well, the acting is better than most Full Moon films and at least the darned movie was outdoors a lot more (unlike the first and most Full Moon trapped in the house plot devices). The Blair Witch-esque parts are really good. Good job, J.R. Charlie Band should let you direct MORE Full Moon films.Full Moon recommendations on DVD include: Pit & The Pendulum and Dead Hate The Living."

"Full moon does it again. this movie starts out like blair witch with people in the woods with a camcorder. It takes a while for the movie to get going but when it does its good. The monsters look good for full moon and the story plays out well in the end. This movie does not have much to do with the first witchouse so if you have not seen the first one no big deal."
