Basket Case, as technically flawed as it may be, is rather engrossing. This sequel, which should’ve never been made; there’s simply no good reason to continue the story; is a joke. My main complaint with the first one was that it didn’t take itself more seriously. Part 2 crawls even further astray.
The tone here is more of a bad TV show than a horror movie. “The Times Square freak twins” are back, but all they do is ruin their mystique. That’s especially true for Belial, who, in a plot that has him and his brother living with other abnormals, is no longer the freakiest in the room.
