|The Legend returns.|
|How a man did all this without weapons is beyond me.|
A year later on Valentines day, Harry somehow dreamed of the cave-in and remembers who was responsible, a young miner named Tom who forgot to check the gas lines. This revelation awakens him from his coma and quickly makes his way out of the hospital, slaughtering patients and orderlies alike, and heads to a party being held inside the very mines he was once trapped in. By luck, Tom's there trying to get over his guilt so after taking pieces out of everyone, Warden closes on Tom and nearly kills the kid when the cops show up and put a bullet or two unto Warden.
|One way to break up a girl~|
Forwarding to the present, Tom returns to town with plans of selling out the mines which sparks some animosity among the locals, including the town's current sheriff Axel, now married to Tom's previous lover, Sarah. Things go for the worse when a new string of pickaxe murders starts hacking its way through the local population and Tom's there to blame. But was it really Tom? What of Axel and his little secrets? Or the fact that no one saw Harry Warden died that night? Is Warden back from the grave, or has someone took his name and living it for the blood?
|I gnash and gnash! Til I gnash no more!|
|ooh yeah~ Try and cut THAT! MPAA!|
|Nice, but no. Would be more shocking if it was|
a kind gramma in there.
It took its time building some mood and, though flawed, the whodunit element is played with more importance instead of just revolving around the Holiday itself, with the idea of Harry Warden coming back from the grave with vengeance in its mind. It played around with two or three likable suspects; mainly Tom, Axel or Warden himself, and the execution for this seems more like a badly acted soap opera with a bodycount. How bearable this take is depends on whether you'd seen the original or not, or how open-armed of a horror fan like me, but I'm sure watching grown men gnash their teeth as they point fingers at a rival who they hadn't seen in years isn't without its criticisms.
|At the end, only a gun can silence a strained lover.|
