This insipid horror sequel has Jesse McLaughlin (Arye Gross) returning to the house where his parents were murdered 25 years earlier. Bad move. With the help of his friend Charlie (Jonathan Stark), Jesse uncovers the body of Gramps (Royal Dano), a 170-year-old corpse who comes back to life. Gramps covets a crystal skull covered in jewels that yields magic powers. The trio find themselves transported to a tropical jungle battling for the coveted cranium. Bill Maher and John Ratzenberger co-star and probably wonder why they did.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"If fewer critics were to decry how bad it is, this in-name-only sequel would succumb to the obscurity it deserves."
‑ Jonathan R. Perry, Tyler Morning Telegraph (Texas)
"A goofy, lightweight, paper-thin, schizophrenic mess."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
"...apparently there's a rule that these House flicks have to feature a star of Cheers, because instead of George Wendt, John Ratzenberger (he played know-it-all mailman Cliff Clavin) pops up as a mysterious handyman."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"If nothing else, one of the great titles for a sequel"
‑ Jon Niccum, Lawrence Journal-World
