Chemistry II: The Voice of a Stranger (1992) is a Roger Corman sequel
to his earlier Body Chemistry, which continues the premise. Lisa
Pescia as Claire, a psychologist, goes after Gregory Harrison, who was
removed from the LAPD for excessive force, and who has returned home
to get his life in order and try to patch things up with his High
School sweetheart. Dr. Claire gets a gig as a talk show shrink, and
agrees to help Harrison deal with his violent streak. She seduces him,
he tries to break it off, and she attacks.
|They followed two of the
rules of a sequel by having more exposure and less plot, but missed
the third rule by not increasing the violence/gore. They nearly made
up for it though with a wonderfully ironic ending.

||There is recycled footage of Monique
Gabrielle from Uncaged and Maria Ford from Naked Obsession which is
used for flashback scenes. Both show breasts, and Monique shows buns
as well. Pescia, this time, has a lengthy and well lit bath scene,
where she shows breasts, buns, and a hint of bush from the side. She
also has a dark sex scene on the stairs with Harrison.
IMDB readers say 2.7/10, which places
this at the yak dung level. There is a way to watch this film. Fast
forward to each of the nude scenes, then skip to the last two minutes,
as the ending really is inspired.
You have to
love a movie that stars Gregory Harrison, Clint Howard, and Morton
Downey, Jr. I guess Erik Estrada wasn't available.
