User Reviews

Not better than the first, but a worthy sequel
13 December 1998 | by (Longwood, Florida) – See all my reviews

Debuting on HBO like the first surprise, this is a pretty good sequel that brings that lunatic dentist (Corbin Bernsen) back in business after escaping a mental hospital and hiding in a quiet town, where he murders the dentist around the town because the guy did a poor job at filling one of his teeth in. He impresses the people in town and woos a lady he's madly in love with, but then goes psycho and takes his madness out on his patients when he finds the girl he loves kissing a guy. There are scenes that make you laugh and dentist torture scenes that will make you cringe. Corbin Bernsen is great as the dentist and delivers a lot of good lines. Between the first and second half, the pace moved a bit slow, but if you liked the first one and can take watching close-ups of teeth being either drilled or yanked out, you should enjoy this strange, campy film.
