This has some of the best set-pieces and kills of the entire franchise, arguably making it the scariest since the original. For being so paper-thin, the characters are also very likable. I think the danger of it all helps you grow to care about this group, plus the pacing from scene to scene is pretty much perfect. Unfortunately, Melissa Barrera's character remains so unbelievably stale and out of place. They had an opportunity to flip the franchise on its head, embracing the idea of a good person succumbing to their darker impulses and unintentionally becoming the monster of their own story. For Barrera's sake, I hope they go down that darker path in the next one so she has something more interesting to work with as the lead.
