OK, this movie took an amazingly twisted and distorted track to reach... well, not at all sure I can tell really. It all looked very 'stunted tree timelines' really, with a number of fates explored, rewound, and replayed out differently.
The premise appears to be similar to the original movie but in a different direction. We still have the phantasmic 'dead' character (who is still very much alive throughout the movie) leaping around warning key players that the world is about to end, and the semi-random sleep-walking sessions and acts of random violence... but you also have timelines twisting around and getting rewritten.
You also get a bonus feature in this one - a serial child-kidnapper who never really gets fully revealed, or caught, or punished. Even by not one but TWO dead time-hoppers.
This movie was a LITTLE more tolerable than the original, but only because I am a sucker for multiple-worldline plots that can mange to pull off a fairly self-consistent rendition of temporal paradoxes. The plot itself was about as twisted and unappealing as the first, for me. With no 'really famous' faces in the line-up, and going direct-to-DVD, this isn't a show-stopper, but it's fairly passable as 'twisted chewing-gum for the mind' if you are in the mood for 'dark and just plain warped'.
Overall, beware anyone with a habit of wearing giant deformed rabbit heads... they are likely to make your life 'interesting' in the manner of the ancient Chinese curse. And beware falling tesseracts too, as they may prove hazardous to your health. And mental stability. And skin condition. This movie will appeal to a particular genre, but probably not to the mainstream crowd.
