Plot: adult Ricky talks to a psychiatrist about how he became a murderer after his murderous brother, Billy, was killed


We have no idea why it took four different people to write this story.  The first half of this sequel basically rehashed the first movie, boob shots and all.  So, you don’t even really have to have seen the first one to understand exactly what’s going on in this one.

Adult Ricky overacts SO much as he’s telling the story of the first movie and how he ended up being a killer just like his big brother.  The first two people he kills sort of deserve it.  They’re in the process of hurting other people when he ends them.  So, no big loss.  But then Ricky just goes crazes and starts killing everyone.  It’s a very flawed motive.  There’s a lot of flaws in this movie actually.

There are no rules.  You don’t really like anyone that’s not police.  Even Mother Superior is a bitch.  And why did they have her living at “666” something.  She, as a nun, would NEVER live at an address of “666” anything.  Stupid!


There were a few bright spots, like the innovation he used to kill some of the people.  However, these spots were not enough for us to recommend the movie.  So sad.

Our score: 39.
