"Stupid Night, Dumb Night Too"
1 stars

After my review of the first film, I did not think the sequel could be any worse...boy, was I wrong.

This 88 minute film rehashes the entire first film through flashback for the first 40 minutes. Not only does it cover the plot, it shows all the awful scenes that made the first one so bad.

This time out, adult Ricky is talking to a psychiatrist about his Santa dressing killer brother Billy in a mental hospital. It seems Ricky has a good memory, since he repeats scenes that neither him or his brother witnessed, and the film makers change the plot of the first film to suit their needs. Ricky also seems to have taken some classes on how to play a character completely wrong. His scenes with the psychiatrist are terrible.

Ricky kills the psychiatrist and escapes to take revenge on the first film's Mother Superior character. Ricky is sent into murderous rages by the color red...you know that color, you probably go days on end without ever seeing it. I would hate to see Ricky's reaction at a four way stop intersection.

Ricky dresses like Santa, and begins hacking and killing. In the end, two bullets and a shotgun blast send him through a plate glass window, but he seems to survive, appearing in the next sequel.

Just as awful as the first, and just as repugnant.
