In the wake of a "dirty bomb" attack, a New York City neighborhood known as "Slime City" has been evacuated, except for the homeless ("displaced refugees"). Four squatters searching for food in the ruins of the Zachary Devon Soup Kitchen (Jennifer Bihl, Kealan Patrick Burke, Debbie Rochon, Lee Perkins) discover a supply of Zachary Devon's Home Brewed Elixir and Himalayan Yogurt. When they drink the elixir and eat the yogurt, they are transformed into hideous slime creatures driven to murder - an intermediate step as they are possessed by the spirits of Zachary Devon (Robert Sabin) and the members of his Coven of Flesh, who committed suicide years earlier. When a greedy developer (Roy Frumkes) sets his sites on Slime City, he hires a team of mercenaries (Nelron Hubbard, Tommy Sweeney, T.J. Merrick, Eric Mache, and Nicholas John Morgan Anderson) to wipe out the homeless population. It's a battle royal between the Slime Heads, the mercenaries, and bloodthirsty mutant cannibals!

Alexa's hand is bandaged in some scenes, and not in others. Also, the size and type of the bandage changes regularly. This was due to a real-life accident suffered on set by actress Jennifer Biel, which necessitated re-shoots and rewrites to incorporate the injury. See more »
I loved slime city so I was really looking forward to Slime city massacre. The sequel is set in a post dirty bomb New York where the authorities have left the people of the city to fend for themselves. We follow a group of four survivors who stumble upon the 'Elixir' and 'Himalayan yogurt' from the first movie. Upon finding it they consume it and succumb to it's side effects which include horniness, melting and homicidal tendencies due to being possessed by ancient cult members souls.
During all this we are treated to flashbacks of the cult where we get a better understanding of how and why it all started. If your a fan of the original or any of Lambersons other movies you'll be pleased to see a lot of familiar faces.
The film itself is really well acted and the effects are great. The only effect I didn't like was the dirty bomb explosion at the beginning because it looked terrible. The slime looked great and all the gore effects were really well done considering the budget this film must have had. I was disappointed that the Slimehead versions of our main characters weren't used enough because they looked really cool. Each having their own neon coloured slime and facial prosthetics. They could have also been a little more murderous as the main character was in the original movie.
I do have a few complaints though. Some of the editing was quite jarring, some scenes flowed awkwardly into others. Also a couple of the characters were a bit pointless. The mole people for example are shown twice once near the start and once at the end they just seemed to be little redundant. These few criticism are all I have of the movie as a whole.
The ending was slimeily satisfying and was a great finale to a worthy sequel to slime city. The Slime has been appeased.
