Another film with everything being kept under wraps. All we know is that it will again be directed by Fede Alvarez and that The Blind Man (Stephen Lang) will return to terrorize more unsuspecting people. Will it work a second time around? I’ll certainly be watching to see if it’s as impressive as the first.
