Storyline

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 Peter Neal <tenebre@tenebre.com>

Brilliant! A sick, sexy ride that I want to go back on!
18 April 2000 | by (Beverly Hills, CA) – See all my reviews

Please, don't read the reviews for "Freeway 2" that bash it because they weren't able to enjoy the mad celebration -- they just need to loosen their belts and get a little crazy. "Freeway 2", a modern retelling of Hanzel and Gretal, is a hilarious, shocking, camp extravaganza. Girls with eating disorders. Huffing binges. Lesbian sex. Exciting violence. Everything you could want in a motion picture -- Matthew Brite, in my opinion, has created a superior film to his first "Freeway" picture. And the superb Vincent Gallo's performance as Sister Gomez is one of the most haunting villains I have ever witnessed. Hannibal who?
