Drive-in movie critic Joe Bob Briggs is listed in the end credits as "Gonzo Moviegoer," but his scene was cut prior to the film's release. Briggs would later complain about the cut in his newspaper column, blaming it (with tongue firmly in cheek) on the Russian premier Mikhail Gorbechev. See more »
I wanted to like this movie. The first one is an all-time favorite; this is the worst excuse for gratuitous violence I've ever seen. Tom Savini's work is effective as usual. Some of the gore scenes left me shaking for days. Great art direction and music (Boingo in the first murder scene...) cannot save this awful mess. Dennis Hopper adds nothing but his name to this travesty. I like horror comedy like "Evil Dead" and "Dead Alive", but the attempts at humor in this mean-spirited film just left me feeling sick. The swiss cheese plot was topped off with a pointless ending. If you want to see some really sick blood and gore then this may be right up your alley, but it seemed pretty pointless otherwise.
