I think the original was a much more enjoyable film. The second one was good, but far too campy in certain scenes, and the characters really were just fodder for the death scenes... but then why waste any time at all trying to make us care about them? The original had semi-poor character development, but at least the main characters had something of a story going on. It was extremely well done. I think a 3rd one could be really promising, from either team.
