Storyline

In this modern update of the Hansel and Gretel fairy tale (actually more like Gretel and Gretel), 15-year old Crystal is a bulimic delinquent who makes her living by beating and robbing potential "tricks". While awaiting a 25-year jail term, Crystal hooks up with a psychotic young lesbian named Cyclona, doing time for slaughtering her entire family. After escaping, they head for Mexico, where Cyclona's saviour Sister Gomez lives in a confectionery full of children. Along the way, they leave a trail of crack rocks, binging and purging, and dead people. Written by Peter Neal <tenebre@tenebre.com>

A modern Exploitation masterpiece
18 December 2009 | by HosleysBack1989See all my reviews

Freeway 2: Confessions of A Trickbaby, written and directed by Matthew Bright, who in my opinion is one of the best and most underrated filmmakers working today. He wrote some fantastic films, which include, 'The Forbidden Zone (1982)' 'Guncrazy (1992)' and Modern Vampires (1998). Bright also wrote and directed three of my all time favorite films, 'Freeway (1996) 'Freeway 2 (1999)' and Ted Bundy (2002). Natasha Lyonne, who played Crystal aka White Girl and María Celedonio who played Cyclona, were both fantastic as the leads, and Vincent Gallo also gave a great performance as Sister Gomez. There was also a cool little cameo by John Landis, who played the Judge. This is a film not to be missed. If your a huge fan of Matthew Bright's work, like myself, and your looking for a unique and a one of kind film, then look no further, this is a modern Exploitation masterpiece and one of the best films of 90's. A perfect 10/10
