Mondo Cane 2 is on the same league as its predecessor. A lot of gory, shocking scenes and also some lighter and comic ones just to even things out. The commenting remains smart but some scenes start to seem rehearsed or directed. I think it's not so spontaneous and unprompted any more. Nevertheless there are some memorable moments, especially the maimed and crippled kids by their exploiters. Definitely for tough stomachs. I don't think it should be in Mondo Cane anyway, because this is not a ritual or something similar, it's just a criminal action.
