There HAD to be a sequel!
5 March 2007 | by ray-280See all my reviews

Corbin Bernsen returns as the dentist who snapped when his wife had an affair and killed a bunch of people in gruesome fashion. Our "hero" manages to escape prison and resume life as a dentist in a quiet, unsuspecting suburban town with a police force that makes a soap opera cop look smart.

The cast has few notables beyond Bernsen, but his over-the-top performance takes this film to the mediocre yet very bloody and gory heights it aimed at. We don't get a movie that tries to be great, or even acutes who take the plot that seriously. What we get is what we expect: to be thrilled, chilled, repulsed, and petrified by the mixture of murder, mayhem, and dental equipment.

That we laugh and cheer when the hapless innocents are so deliciously dispatched in films like this is something for the psychs to wonder about, but until they figure it out, I'll be hooting and hollering right along with them.

If it didn't have tons of killing and gallons of blood, it would be good clean fun, but instead this movie is just good fun. Good, gory fun.

Enjoy when you have nothing better to do and want to see some torture and killing on screen.
