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>

One of My Favorite Movies of All Time!!
8 November 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

Freeway and Freeway 2 are my all-time favorite movies!! I'll admit Freeway was more mainstream with very little sex and violence, and Reese Witherspoon is stunning and superb as Vanessa, but Freeway 2 breaks ALL the rules!! I've watched it several times and have it on VHS. This movie's got it all: girls in prison, bad girls gone badder,lesbianism, miscegeny, menstruation, childhood sexual abuse, bulimia, female serial killers, necrophilia, incest, hypocrisy in religion, radical feminism, chicks who pose as hookers to beat up and rob male tricks, manifestations of sexism and racism (in a very satirical way). The best part is that these things are all represented in an in-your-face matter-of-fact way. Its no sappy, emo-drama, Lifetime "channel for women" type of deal. This movie ROCKS! O, and there is some male frontal nudity at the end. I wonder, is that REALLY Vincent Gallo in that scene or just a prop??
