In this modern update of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale (actually more like Gretel and Gretel), 15-year old Crystal is a bulimic delinquent who makes her living by beating and robbing potential "tricks". While awaiting a 25-year jail term, Crystal hooks up with a psychotic young lesbian named Cyclona, doing time for slaughtering her entire family. After escaping, they head for Mexico, where Cyclona's saviour Sister Gomez lives in a confectionery full of children. Along the way, they leave a trail of crack rocks, binging and purging, and dead people. Written by

'Freeway II' is just slightly disappointing compared to the original
'Freeway', but once again shows that writer/director Matthew Bright has
ideas and attitude to spare. The first movie retold Little Red Riding Hood, this
one takes on Hansel and Gretel. Natasha Lyonne is no Reese Witherspoon,
but her spunky role here as White Girl, and her memorable turn in the
forgotten gem 'Slums Of Beverly Hills' proves that she is more talented
than lame-brained crud like the 'American Pie' series and 'Detroit Rock
Maria Celedonio had up until this point passed me by apart from a small
role in Schrader's 'Touch', but she is sensational here as the
psychotic necrophile Cyclona.
Vincent Gallo ('Buffalo 66', 'The Funeral', 'Palookaville') has never
been less than mesmerizing on screen, even in his dialogue-less
blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameos in 'Goodfellas' and 'Basquiat', but
portraying the utterly freaky Sister Gomez is one of his most bizarre
moves to date! Gallo seems set on carrying on the scene stealing nut
job reputation of the late legendary Timothy Carey. More power to him!
Gallo even brings along his 'Truth Or Consequences NM' co-star Max
Perlich ('Drugstore Cowboy', 'Georgia', 'Gummo') as Flacco, a mumbling
hunchback. Perlich doesn't completely surpass his similarly gonzo bit
part in Johnny Depp's 'The Brave', but it's great to see him try!
'Freeway II' will appeal to fans of Gregg Araki, John Waters and Bruce
McDonald more than Michael Bay lovers that's for sure! A must see for
trash cinema lovers.
