Trivia

During the filming of the scene the scene where Dr. Feinstone is digging a grave, the producer came to the director and said the home owners didn't want any digging in their garden. So they laid down a piece of plastic with a little bit dirt on it so it would look like he was digging in the garden. See more »

Alternate Versions

The 1999 UK video was cut by 51 seconds by the BBFC "to remove sadistic details". Deletions were made to close-ups of bloody detail and degrading/sadistic dialogue during the "Truth or Tooth" torture scene. The 2001 DVD featured the same cut print. See more »

Same ol' game...
6 July 2000 | by very_doubtfulSee all my reviews

...but not worse than the first Dentist. Actually, I think this sequel is even slightly better than the original (a rare thing to happen in the horror genre). Sure, there's nothing new about this film, but as I already told you: it's not worse than the first.

Dr. Feinstone (Corbin Bernsen) has escaped a mental hospital and continues his work in a small town called 'Paradise' after getting rid of the local dentist. But soon his itchy drill finger starts to mutilate his patients in another series of disgustingly elaborate drill & kill scenes.

Again, Corbin Bernsen does an excellent job as the psycho-dentist. And again, this film delivers very weird entertainment and gore galore. The ending leaves the possibility of another sequel.

If you have a slightly sick sense of humor you might like it, especially if you liked the first Dentist.

My rating: 4/10
