NOBODY SLEEPS IN THE WOODS TONIGHT 2 on Netflix continues right where the first movie ended. A truly crazy movie that has moments of brilliance, but is way too slow. Read our full Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 movie review here!

NOBODY SLEEPS IN THE WOODS TONIGHT 2 is a new Netflix horror slasher. As the title clearly states, this is a sequel to the Polish horror movie Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight which was a pretty cool horror comedy.

While this sequel continues right where the first movie ended, it is very different. It’s much darker and features less comedy. What it has instead is a very slow build (not a good thing) and some absolutely crazy developments (which is very good).

Picks up where the first movie left off

Since Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 continues immediately after the first movie, a re-watch of the first movie would be a good thing. I did not watch the first movie again and was a bit confused at first when forced to remember the events quickly.

I mean, we don’t even get a quick little recap of any kind, which would definitely have been a good thing.

Instead, we see the two very obese and strangely possessed killers from the first movie in jail. In the cell next to them is one of the survivors from the “offline camp” that served as the backdrop for the first movie. Camp Adrenalin does also serve as the backdrop for quite a lot of the action in this sequel.

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 – Netflix Review

Alien romance meets horror slasher

If you worry about watching a movie in Polish, then maybe I can offer a few words of encouragement here. For starters, there isn’t that much dialogue in Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 because this is a horror slasher. Also, the final third of the movie becomes a sort of alien romance story.

But in a truly crazy way. Think Natural Born Killers but with aliens in the starring roles. And these aliens also speak an alien language, which means nobody on Planet Earth understands. Don’t worry though, there are subtitles.

And also, you’ll witness these aliens having sex and talking about motives for killing. Honestly, I loved this sick and twisted development of the story. I just didn’t like that the first hour or so was way too slow in its build-up.

While I am actually a rather big fan of Polish Netflix productions, this isn’t their strongest. Still, the production quality and surprises in plot development definitely do lend an upper hand to an otherwise weak sequel.

CHECK OUT MORE POLISH NETFLIX PRODUCTIONS

Here’s a great example of a Polish Netflix production that works perfectly >

Bartosz M. Kowalski is the director of Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 and also wrote the screenplay with Mirella Zaradkiewicz. And yes, Bartosz M. Kowalski also wrote and directed the first movie (with Mirella Zaradkiewicz), so it’s not that anything has changed in that sense.

In all fairness, I do love the camp and kitschy horror comedies. The first one gave me exactly that, so how could I not be disappointed when the sequel offers something completely different. If you liked the first one, then be sure to check out Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 on Netflix and just have fun with it for the 96 minutes it lasts.

Nobody Sleeps in the Woods Tonight 2 is out on Netflix from October 27, 2021.

Plot

Adam, the film’s protagonist, is a young, lonely and unhappy police officer from a small village in the Polish region of Podlasie. Given the cold shoulder by his peers and the beautiful and self-assured Vanessa, the shy young man searches for his place in the world. In this sequel, we also discover the fate of Zosia, who reveals an entirely new and unexpected side of herself.

I write reviews and recaps on Heaven of Horror. And yes, it does happen that I find myself screaming, when watching a good horror movie. I love psychological horror, survival horror and kick-ass women. Also, I have a huge soft spot for a good horror-comedy. Oh yeah, and I absolutely HATE when animals are harmed in movies, so I will immediately think less of any movie, where animals are harmed for entertainment (even if the animals are just really good actors). Fortunately, horror doesn't use this nearly as much as comedy. And people assume horror lovers are the messed up ones. Go figure!
