The Mangler 2: Yikes!
1 April 2018 | by PlatypuschowSee all my reviews

Okay fine it's true I watched the Mangler franchise a bit wonky, I saw the first which I think was a watchable effort followed by the third which was a total mess and now finally all these years later have gotten to part 2.

Now going in my hopes were fairly high, it stars Lance Henriksen so it couldn't possibly be that bad, right?

Well The Mangler 2 follows on from the first movie in no shape or form, it's an original tale about a virus that takes over a heavily automated school and starts killing folks off.

Devoid of originality, oddly dull, with awful death scenes and instantly forgettable characters The Mangler 2 tops part 3 but just barely.

Not entirely sure what they were going for but I can confidently say that it doesn't work, not even slightly.

Watch The Mangler (1995) and pretend it doesn't have sequels.

The Good:

Decent soundtrack

The Chef stole the whole film

Lance Henriksen

The Bad:

Weak connection to the original film

Really quite boring

Things I Learnt From This Movie:

I'm left wondering whose idea it was for one of the girls to just wear her bra for near the entire film
