      Jason S I like this one better than the third one because it had better acting we see more of mike and the tall man and more better scenes but this one did not a lot of sets it is just a hotel roads and deserts and a pretty low budget which is 650,000 dollars but not dumb like the third one not bad acting and not the same ending like the first three films did. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 05/07/23 Full Review robert p Another fantastic movie that the series is still using the same characters from previous films makes this a very good cult classic on DVD, thus my *3 and 1/2* star review!!! Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member While I can appreciate this film for its direction and attempt to add lore to The Tall Man and its attempt to restore the feel of the original movie, this film isn't without flaws. This film is one of the films with a lower budget in the series, and you feel it at times, and this film's first half is horrendous in its slow pacing. However, the atmosphere and tone of this film are what stick out and keep it from being a bad entry in my eyes. While this film is not my personal cup of tea, I can see why some may like it more than me, and why others may dislike it more than me. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Still a good series, has a few likeable characters and answers a few questions that were set up in past movies. Good questions are raised and the mystery surrounding everything were awesome. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review tom k It doesn't have to make sense if you forget all you know about what a movie should be! Rated 4 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review andrew k Entertaining, but a little all over the place like the first one was. Story and dialogue are pretty sloppy. Some interesting backstory about the Tall Man though. Worth it for fans of the series. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews Post a rating
