This time around, the voyage includes vivisection, recreations of old west lynchings, a visit to a mortician's school, transvestites, wild sex clubs and alligator hunting. Written by

Continuing where they left off, the filmakers begin at a dog shelter stating that the first "MONDO CANE" was banned in the UK because of its depiction of dogs. The joking opening aside this sequel had more interesting segments in it than the first, and there was probably a tad more violence in this one. I had an extremely difficult time obtaining this 2nd "MONDO", (I've seen the 1st at almost every video store *except Blockbuster), so if you run across it make sure you pick it up.
