Cell 2, The (DVD)
In the thrilling sequel to the 2000 film, The Cell 2 enters the world of Cusp, a demented killer who resurrects his victims in order to torture them again and again. The only hope to stop him lies with Maya, a physic investigator who recently awoke from a one-year coma. The trouble is: Maya was Cusp's first victim, who must now she must go deep inside his disturbed mind. And if she dies inside the killer's brain, she dies in real life!]]>
This straight-to-DVD sequel to the 2000 Jennifer Lopez picture must play its mind games without Lopez herself. But the idea's still intact: another telepathic mind-melder (played by Tessie Santiago) is employed by the police to get into the brain of a serial killer. She's been clinically dead six times or something, and can "see" in a way others cannot. She was herself once held by the madman, who has figured out a way to wipe his face out of her visions of his dark, torture-filled world. Where the original film directed by Tarsem (the music-video veteran and maker of The Fall) at least provided some gaudy visuals for the already-tired premise, The Cell 2 has 24 producer-director Tim Iacofano at the helm. The sense of overheated episodic television prevails, although the acting can charitably be described as beneath the level of an average TV show. (The exception is the villain, after he's unmasked, but those kinds of roles reliably provide opportunities for mustache-twirling shenanigans.) One begins to miss the old-fashioned simplicity of a normal mad-killer movie; now you've got to keep straight how each scene alters the memories, or unconscious minds, or the ability to foretell things, or... see, already we've lost track. --Robert Horton

It is loosely based on the concept of travelling into another mind to find out information needed to solve the case.
Maya Castenada (Tessie Santiago) is the loosely copied JLO clone that met with the serial killer who likes to kill women then bring them back to life.
Maya is the only one who survived her deaths and as a result is able to read minds, and the mind of the killer.
The killer is out again capturing women and killing them six times, then finally killing them for good. This time he has the sheriff's niece, and the sheriff, the FBI, and Maya are all after the killer
Early about the middle of the movie the director exposes the killer to you and the rest is a struggle to save the niece and the story unfolds into views of both Maya's mind and the killers.
The production is obviously low budget but come on, it wasn't that terrible. It was worth the price of a rental for one viewing.
There were some fairly good effects and the acting was so cheesy it was enjoyable.
Relax, don't take yourself so seriously, grab a friend and some popcorn and pop. Settle in and have fun.
Worth at least one watch.
