The very next day after the events of the first film we follow a group of biker chicks that are looking for the leaders twin sister, you may remember "gagging" moment from the first. Upon discovering that the place is wrecked and she is dead they move on to a near by town to find out what happened to her. Along the way we are reintroduced to two survivors from the first film, the grumpy and now very badly injured bartender and Honey Pie the girl who left all of them when she made it to the truck. Once in the town we find that the place is swarming with the creatures from the first and people are dying [being raped and eaten] left and right. So much like the first film this is a survival flick centered on a small group of people trying to make it out alive, and what a great group we have. The biker chicks who get naked, the grumpy and very funny bartender, a wonderfully entertaining car salesman [you may know him as Cole from "Martin"] with his cheating wife and her lover, and two midget wrestlers along side grandma.
This much like the first is all about the blood, guts, sex, dark comedy, and over the top situations and occurrences, and trust me when I say that they get over. The creatures look as cool as ever although they seem a little different in this one, I like the look of the first film better. Also you get to see a lot of monster private parts, and I mean a lot [ugh]. Also there is a crazy moment involving a cat, poor thing and of course the now famous or should I say infamous baby scene. All of these things along with flying midgets splattering on pavement make for one of the most fun movies I have ever seen, no joke. All the blood you need is there and there are some genuinely funny moments especially from Slasher and bartender, tender has my favorite line in the entire movie.
The return of John Gulager as director and Patrick Melton & Marcus Dunstan as writers was indeed the greatest thing that the producers [Chris Moore, Michael Leahy & the Weinstein's] could have done. With the classic that these three delivered the first time they really were the only choice when bringing this back. I actually like the fact that they kinda go a different way with this film, it kinda adds to the good time brought on by the first and makes a little fun of its self. Where part one was a nice mix of horror/comedy this one leans a little more towards the comedy but adds a lot more blood and fun.
Jenny Wade returns as Honey Pie and is as much of a ........ well a pain as usual, and what a hard girl to kill. She does a good job reprising her role as does Diane Goldner who returns to play her twin from the first one [she is the director's wife]. Clu Gulager is magnificent as the returning bartender and is one of the most entertaining people in the entire film. From there we have an all new cast since the other survives left to pick up a kid from the first film. First off is Carl Anthony Payne II who steals the show as Slasher the car salesman, this dude needs to be making more films. He was great in "Martin" and just as good in the classic "The Breaks". Hanna Putnam plays his cheating wife and is perfect in the role as is her lover played by Tom Gulager who really takes a nasty shot in this. Martin Klebba and Juan Longoria García are two midget wrestlers and are insanely entertaining much like every one in this over the top classic.
Like the review I wrote about the first one I will admit that I can not do this movie justice, I truly enjoyed this film, I always love things like this. I find that movies like this are usually the ones that keep my attention and have me smiling and laughing in a very strange way, I'm not crazy but it is enjoyable......right? Naw I am just playing but still this is a great fun flick that I truly feel if you go in with an open mind you will enjoy. This like the last film as a great commentary with every one on it giving out a lot of wonderful information about the movie and the time they had making it. There are also some more great features that you will enjoy, go out and buy now.
I basically am just a normal person obbsessed with Mixed Martial Arts, pro wrestling, movies of all kinds, music of all kinds, books of all kinds, and of course foods of all kinds. Just trying to keep … more
