This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.
The absolutely bonkers third act saved this from being actually bad, but juuuuust barely. The first two thirds of this movie are filled with boring / bad acting, unlikeable characters, and far inferior storytelling than the original had. The only thing this movie does better than the original is to include much more Lovecraftian elements especially with the final scene.
The way the Freak killed John was fantastic and earned a half star all by itself.
