The people who are stating that this movie is the worst sequel they've ever
seen obviously never saw "Hercules II" or "Jaws 3-D" or "Hellraiser II".
Now, I am not about to tell you that this is a great film, but if you set
your expectations low, you are likely to have fun. Despite the icky (and
variable in quality, though impressive in the last 10 minutes) special
effects and the large amounts of blood and t&a, the film never becomes truly
disturbing, because you're never meant to take it 100% seriously. Michael

less a supporting part, but one that is rather imaginatively linked to the
central story line.
Overall, a movie with no artistic pretensions and, undoubtedly, many flaws
