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>

Another twisted Matthew Bright movie!
24 December 2001 | by InfofreakSee all my reviews

'Freeway II' is just slightly disappointing compared to the original 'Freeway', but once again shows that writer/director Matthew Bright has ideas and attitude to spare. The first movie retold Little Red Riding Hood, this one takes on Hansel and Gretel. Natasha Lyonne is no Reese Witherspoon, but her spunky role here as White Girl, and her memorable turn in the forgotten gem 'Slums Of Beverly Hills' proves that she is more talented than lame-brained crud like the 'American Pie' series and 'Detroit Rock City'. Maria Celedonio had up until this point passed me by apart from a small role in Schrader's 'Touch', but she is sensational here as the psychotic necrophile Cyclona. Vincent Gallo ('Buffalo 66', 'The Funeral', 'Palookaville') has never been less than mesmerizing on screen, even in his dialogue-less blink-and-you'll-miss-it cameos in 'Goodfellas' and 'Basquiat', but portraying the utterly freaky Sister Gomez is one of his most bizarre moves to date! Gallo seems set on carrying on the scene stealing nut job reputation of the late legendary Timothy Carey. More power to him! Gallo even brings along his 'Truth Or Consequences NM' co-star Max Perlich ('Drugstore Cowboy', 'Georgia', 'Gummo') as Flacco, a mumbling hunchback. Perlich doesn't completely surpass his similarly gonzo bit part in Johnny Depp's 'The Brave', but it's great to see him try! 'Freeway II' will appeal to fans of Gregg Araki, John Waters and Bruce McDonald more than Michael Bay lovers that's for sure! A must see for trash cinema lovers.
