New Venom: Let There Be Carnage trailer indeed looks like a bloody mess

When we saw the first trailer for Venom: Let There Be Carnage, our sentiment was basically that, yup, that sure is more Venom. Well, now there’s a new trailer, and yup, that’s even yet more of that. More shoddy CGI. More oppressively blue bodega shots. More of Venom’s insufferable “feed me, Seymour!” comedy routine in his Keith-David-as-a-werewolf voice. And now, mirroring Spider-Man 3′s also-dumb Venom, there’s another church set-piece for everyone’s favorite tar alien. The first movie was already very bad, but this one almost seems deliberately so—Carnage’s ketchup tendrils dragging us back to the edgy, ’90s, inky black superhero schlock of Spawn. Director Andy Serkis should stick to simians over symbiotes.

Venom: Let There Be Carnage will bring its terror of “a red one” to theaters September 24.
