Brian Yuzna directs Jeffery Combs, Bruce Abbott and Fabiana Udenio in this body horror comedy sequel where bargain basement Dr. Frankenstein-wannabe Herbert West continues his experiments.
Not as funny or as anarchic as the first entry. Combs is good value but seems a little dialled back. The plotting contains lots of filler… only a few moments are particularly worth showcasing. It does end in an orgy of anatomical surrealism. The gloopy overkill does kinda justify the wait. But there’s no reason a bit more of the chaos and chunks couldn’t have been salted over towards the first hour.
