With the sum of 13 votes over Rotten Tomatoes, the movie presently had a 0% rating. The New York Times, Glenn Kenny called it “the thoroughly commonplace follow-up”, and then criticized the lack of logic of the movie. Justin Lowe from this “The Hollywood Reporter” tendered similar criticism of the movie, writing that the script of “Lofing and Cluff” blends the thriller and the horror elements without the need to ever settle on the clear genre choice. This surprising final twist of the movie only serves to stress its narrative incoherence, inadequate character development and precipitated by the deficient back story. The movie was given the thumbs down, and then calling it as one worst movie of Blumhouse, and then criticized the shallow characters, the story, the script and the overuse of the jump-scares in the movie.
The movie is really a slow film, quite few jump scares, however, ones that you will see coming from the mile away. It has a barely cohesive story and the play of its initial movie had become an online dare (yet somehow no one has noticed that everybody died from it.) This movie is not impressed by trying to millenialized the story of the movie, through making it a social network-based. The movie does nothing for a story and it is already been completed in a million times.
There are no more deaths, not much reasoning or explanation behind anything, but just by “reading this will kill people.” The characters are somewhat crappy with some first world problems.
