More of the same, only worse.
20 May 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

After escaping from a mental institution, Dr. Allen Feinstone (Corbin Bernsen) moves on to the small Midwestern town of Paradise and becomes Dr. Lawrence Caine. Unsuccessfully trying to fight off personal demons and homicidal thoughts, the deranged doctor finally snaps, kills the town's only dentist and takes over his business, which results in several gory murders. Meanwhile his ex-wife Brooke (Linda Hoffman, returning from the original) is out for revenge.

This direct-to-video sequel manages to out repulse the previous entry with lots of gory close-ups of teeth being yanked out or chewed up with a drill, needles going into skin, cut out tongues and more. Most of the supporting cast are as grating as the non-stop dental tool background soundtrack. If you want gore and no more, you got it here.
