2 is a sequel to the comic book horror spoof that most think
would have been better unmade. Some who commented at IMDb think it is
so bad it is good. It is a collection of three shorts, spliced
together with animation. The stories are based on Stephen King tales
(he makes a cameo appearance).
|The first has no exposure,
and is the story of a wooden indian who comes alive to revenge the
murders of the store keeper (Creepshow 2) and his wife.

||The second is about two college
couples who swim out to a raft in the middle of a lake long after the
lake was closed for the season. The four
are eaten by a very hungry blob in the water. Jeremy Green shows his
breasts when one of the boys decides to play with them.
The last story features breast
exposure from Lois Chiles as she gets out of bed with a gigolo, and
rushes home to her husband. Along the way, she hits a hitchhiker, who
just won't stay dead.
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, I have some
sympathy for the "so bad it's good" theory, and will
award a full C, partly because I enjoyed the animation.
