6.0 Stars out of 10

Eddie Brock struggles to adjust to his new life as the host of the alien symbiote Venom, which grants him super-human abilities in order to be a lethal vigilante. Brock attempts to reignite his career by interviewing serial killer Cletus Kasady, who becomes the host of the symbiote Carnage and escapes prison after a failed execution.

In 1996, a young Cletus Kasady watches helplessly as his love, Frances Barrison, who has the ability of sound manipulation, is taken away from St. Estes Home for Unwanted Children to the Ravencroft Institute. On the way, she uses her sonic scream powers to escape and attacks young police officer Patrick Mulligan. He shoots Barrison in the eye and suffers an injury to his ear due to her scream. Unbeknownst to Mulligan, who believes he killed her, Barrison is taken to the facility, which is hardened against her powers.

Review by Heather Garcia (Barbara McCoy is my Mom):

If you know my Husband and I love marvel movies, so we could not pass up the opportunity to watch the new Venom movie. This one started out different than the first one. It does not show Eddie Brock or Venom within the first few minutes. All in all, this was just as good as the first Venom movie. At the end of the movie during the credits it shows a little clip and makes it seem like there will be a third Venom movie. I guess we will all have to wait and see.
