9 September 2003 | by (usa) – See all my reviews

Absolutely unnecessary sequel to a camp classic, made by the same director and starring the same actors -- with the exception of the lead, now played by a very different-looking, if perfectly acceptable, actress. Problem is, no plot at all and the characters that were so lovable and eccentric in the first film now wear thin rather quickly. The plot is a direct swipe of DEATH WISH, by the way.
