Here’s what the distributor says about their film: “Two years after the events of the first film, Tree Gelbman re-enters the time loop to determine why she was entered into it in the first place. Not only that, but she must face a revenge-seeking Lori who has been resurrected by the power of the time loop.

Tree discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.”

Secular Movie Critics
…staggeringly unnecessary follow-up to the surprise horror hit turns a nifty concept into an exhaustingly convoluted mess. …As the film progresses and the plot continues to contort itself in new, even dumber directions, it almost becomes a blueprint for how not to make a horror sequel. …[1/5]
Benjamin Lee, The Guardian [UK]
…Multiverses …how I curse the day comic book writers and their Hollywood acolytes discovered those. …[1½/4]
Roger Moore, Movie Nation
…grinds the original premise into the ground… another cash grab that made us want to return to its inspired forerunner…
Joshua Rothkopf, Time Out Chicago [2/5]
…this chapter feels phoned in. And unless you’re really, really desperate for a new horror movie to check out, you might want to think twice about accepting the charges. …
Chris Nashawaty, Entertainment Weekly
…disappoints… the journey is different, and ultimately less-satisfying… [2½/5]
Bill Goodykoontz, The Arizona Republic
…overstuffed with unfunny self-parodying gore slapstick, half-felt sentimentality and semi-meta sci-fi…
Glenn Kenny, The New York Times
…more complicated… less fun…
Owen Gleiberman, Variety
…doesn’t live up to its aspirations… [2½/4]
