History is repeating itself. Sixteen years after she escaped teen-torturer Ernie Bishop, Joan Burrows (Angela Bettis) returns home to find a copycat killer knocking off her niece’s mates. Scar 3D settles for knocking off Halloween and Friday The 13th, with Saw gore and a confused riff on WAZ.

The result is humourless, implausible and lacks a single original idea. There would be no reason for this film to exist, were it not the first live action feature shot entirely in HD3D. But what’s the point if it actually looks worse? It’s a sad day for horror when the best thing is a 3D bra.
