Storyline

The door of the mental hospital opens, releasing Ricky from its confines. He takes with him the terrifying memory of his brother Billy's death and the burning image of Mother Superior-the powerful figure that brought about his brother's violent demise. For Ricky, starting a new life means avenging his brother's death. By whatever means necessary, whether it be the cutting edge of a shiny steel knife blade, or the electrifying charge of a set of battery cables, Ricky is set in this blind journey of revenge leading ultimately to Mother Superior. As Mother Superior prays in the dark, we suggest she say an extra prayer for herself, because not even her faith will be enough to stop Ricky. But prayers will do little for in the silent part of this night! Written by Chance

Trivia

Ricky yells "Garbage Day!" before shooting a man holding up a trashcan. It became a famous Internet catchphrase, and countless videos of the clip can be found on YouTube. See more »

Goofs

In the VHS version, when Ricky crosses the street during his shooting rampage, the entire crew is visibly standing around, equipment and all. The DVD release crops out most of the crew, though a boom mic and the top of someone's head are still visible. See more »

Quotes

Henry Bloom: Hello, Ricky. I'm your court appointed therapist. My name is Dr. Henry Bloom. You can call me Henry, or if you want, you can just call me Doc.
Ricky Caldwell: Fuck off... Doc!

Crazy Credits

So much flashback footage from part one is shown in the first half of this movie, that when the end credits start, they credit the ENTIRE cast and crew from part one also, along with the cast and crew of this sequel. See more »

A joy if you like bad horror
31 January 2005 | by DonJohn80See all my reviews

The first thing anyone will admit when mentioning this movie is that it is terrible. It is even admitted in the Anchor Bay DVD release that it was mostly edited from the original to extend the video shelf-life of the first film, which was also less than Citizen Kane. The new material is acted with less talent than a grade school play, and those same grade school children could have written the script were it not for the not so child-like subject. The movie is merely an attempt to capitalize on gore, nudity, and controversy. As such, if you haven't seen the original in a while, this is a decent horror film. The slasher genre makes no claims to being Oscar worthy, so don't expect it to be and you'll be fine.If you go into this movie wanting to watch a badly made gore-fest you won't be disappointed. I find the delivery of the line "Garbage Day" makes this film one of my horror favorites despite the fact I rate it 4/10.
