Cheesier than the first one, and I love it!
12 June 2000 | by (Akron, Ohio) – See all my reviews

If you haven't seen this abysmal piece of trash, you haven't lived. At least 400 times cheesier than the first one, and believe me, it hooks ya! SEE... the Son of Blob attack a...SCOUTMASTER! NOOOOOOOOOOOO! The first one was so straightfoward (well, it doesn't seem so today, but...), and this totally trashes it. This is one you can't even find on video anymore, and it's a shame, because you'll laugh so hard it hurts, I Gar-an-tee it!!!!
