Whilst the majority of horror fans, myself included, thought this film was terrible and certainly nowhere near as good as it's predecessor, there is no denying that Scott Spiegel can make a visually interesting film.

Despite a good cast of familiar faces and genre heroes, the story leaves you bored to tears, as the main cast sit around talking before heading to a hotel and talking, and then pulling a bank job before talking some more.

The way the film is shot however is very interesting with all manner of shot compositions, crazy angles and P.O.V. aplenty. The camera never stays still and it is very interesting and therefore was obviously well thought out in pre-production.

The best moment in the film involves an homage to 'Psycho' but aside from that there really isn't much to write home about.

OVERALL SUMMARY
Starts off alright but never really goes anywhere. A very well made film, would have benefitted from a better story.

Criminal Duane Whitaker attempts to set-up a bank job, gets bitten by 'Titty Twister' bartender Danny Trejo and then sets about biting all of his cronies, including brooding Robert Patrick. Bo Hopkins once again plays the hick sheriff stereotype.

Not as bad as you'd think but then again, I preferred Quentin Tarantino's screenplay for the first film more than anything else the guy has done. This direct-to-video sequel has some mildly entertaining set-pieces but you've seen it all before.

Not original, and we don't care one iota about any of these thin characters. Patrick (who can act when he tries) looks bored, they should've replaced him with the always tongue-in-cheek Bruce Campbell, who has a boring cameo here.

The FX are better than one might anticipate, but nothing earth-shattering, the real bonus is the ingenuity brought by director Scott Spiegel, who uses a lot of fancy tricks and angles I tend to find pretentious, but here they work to liven things up a bit.

OVERALL SUMMARY
It's a C+ sequel to a B-grade original, but if you don't have high expectations, the film offers some mild entertainment.
