At the beginning of the movie, when Laurie runs into the school auditorium, we see a sign promoting the school's production of Faust, directed by "Joe Bob Briggs", with "Roger Gorman" listed as the head of the drama department (or some similar title). Joe Bob Briggs (real name: John Bloom) hosted a late-night b-movie program, and Roger Gorman is a reference to famed movie director Roger Corman. See more »

A very entertaining sequel. Much better than part one.
976-Evil 2 (1991) is a far better film than the first movie. The film-makers didn't try to be serious with the subject matter and the players seem to be enjoying themselves. Shot on the cheap, the sequel follows Spike and his attempts to stop the evil behind that darn 976-EVIL. He's still tooling around on his motorcycle looking like a rebel without a clue. But this time around he has one. It's up to him to stop the madness. A little worse for wear (Spike's sporting a five o'clock shadow that comes and goes) but he's all clad in black leather and looking to kick some demonic butt!
Like I said, a very entertaining movie. Unlike the first film the black humor works. The villain in this movie is real creepy and funny as well. The film's direction flows along at a reasonable pace (thanks to the ever reliable Jim Wynorski) and the blood flows. I'm glad they stopped after this one. I probably couldn't take another sequel.
