[to Reverend Zombie, about Marybeth]
What's up with that Blair Witch, man? I'd tap that, but she'd probably have cobwebs sealing it up. And even if I did hit that, a bunch of bats come flying out of it. Voodoo.

Marybeth (Danielle Harris) escapes the clutches of the bayou-butcher Victor Crowley (Kane Hodder) and returns to the swamp with an army of hunters and gunmen, determined to end Crowley's reign of horror once and for all.
The strength of this film is in the back story of Victor Crowley. Slasher films do not really need an origin to their killers, but if they do I think it helps make them more iconic. Jason Voorhees had mommy issues and some bad counselors. Freddy Krueger was the "victim" of vigilante violence. Now we see what drives the evil of Crowley...
I was hooked by the use of Ministry over the credits and then convinced when I heard the "baby Jesus" joke. This is not as strong a film as the first one, but still has a sense of fun about it that makes it a crowd favorite -- lots of blood, some silly characters and outrageous moments. Adam Green takes the best of the slasher films and mixes in the Troma mentality... with a resounding success!
Green also relies on an endless amount of horror references and casting of horror icons. In this way, he is very much like Rob Zombie. However, two things should be said: one, as a whole, Green makes the better movies. And two, I think Green is better at seamlessly incorporating the actors into his movies. With Zombie, it is often 90 minutes of "Oh, it is x, y, z!" He seems more focused on getting the name than getting the best performance.
