Good cheesy direct-to-video sequel.
4 April 2019 | by b_kiteSee all my reviews

I remember The Sci Fi Channel playing this one a lot back in the day. It's pretty much the first film redone with added gore and some sex and nudity, sadly it lacks that films budget. Overall, it's some good cheesy DTV fun with Alexis Arquette owning the whole movie with his over the top acting and corny one liners.
