Goofs

(at around 38 mins) When Lee's appearance is turned from being a 'Nothing-Face' into the Playboy centerfold model, a staple, although oversized, also materializes on Lee since it was visible when the picture of the centerfold was looked at, but when Lee's appearance changes from that of the model into the Hungry Heifer Manager (at around 50 mins), glasses do not materialize on Lee's face, even though the restaurant manager was wearing glasses at that time.

Good sequel.
14 November 2003 | by See all my reviews

*** stars out of ****.

I liked this more than most people and don't understand why it's so hated. It is a good film, in my opinion. The special effects are great, the 80's score ROCKS, the acting is good, gore level is good, everything is fine.....it delivers the bloody goods! I recommend it to horror fans! it's better than you'd think.
