Stupid, lame, but some nice gore
2 April 2002 | by See all my reviews

Yeah I know, I like watching bad movies, I think they're pretty funny, and when they have gore, I find it even better, because I love gore. And "The Dentist 2" brought both of them. It has some jokes that remind of "Dr.Giggles"'s.

This film had, in the line of what bad movie lovers enjoy, some stupid one-liners, a psycho schizophreniac dentist, some quite sadistic acts of violence (against an idiot fat lady, and many other characters played by so-so actors), a weird and lame ending, a pretty stupid scenario, and some pretty gruesome sequences of dental torture.

The story is about a maniac dentist who was put in a mental ward after he had turned crazy and went on a killing spree. That man escapes from the mental ward (and it's a very easy and stupid escape) and hides in another small town, where he becomes the town's dentist. But this man lives with the constant memory of his wife who had cheated on him (and that's what made him insane in the first episode of "The Dentist"). And it haunts him...and the insanity's back in his head, and he's on another killing spree.

This is a survivor of the "gore" genre. This film is directed by Brian Yuzna, who also brought us "The Dentist", "Faust:Love of The Damned", "Return of the Living Dead 3", and "Progeny". He's not a great director at all, but in the gore genre, he's one of those rare guys who hang on. Corbin Bernsen is not that bad as the insane dentist, but the rest of the cast is pretty bad. The gore effects are really disgusting, there are zooms of mouths being mutilated, and if you're already afraid of going at the dentist, don't see this.

Well, overall, it's a nice movie to watch as a stupid bad movie. It has some funny parts (and it's not always meant to be funny), very disgusting scenes, and a psycho dentist...it says it all­...

I give it 7/10 (in the cheese meter) 4/10 (as a normal movie)
