    ★★★

    lacks the clinical efficiency, sharp wit, and mastery of tone the original had - in other words, this is pretty sloppy, unfocused, and pretty dim-witted.

Pretty much worth it for the last 15 minutes when Yuzna + Screaming Mad George go completely cuckoo.

    ★★★★★

    The lives of two lovestruck runaways, a convenience store owner, a gang of disaffected youth, and a vagrant with a heart of gold all collide on one fateful night.

    A sooper self-serious, cheesy, melodramatic, frightening, tragic 90s splatter horror jam. What can I say, folks? This hit all of my fucking buttons. Shady and cruel government experiments, grimy urban locales, a colorful cast of characters, hefty amounts of gore, punk attitude, and a love story that honestly worked for me…
