MOVIE REVIEW: Frightmare II 1974
Frightmare II is the story of two sisters. Jackie, the older sister and Debbie, the younger, wilder sister. Jackie is in charge of raising her younger sister after their parents were placed in jail for 15 years for acts of cannibalism. The father is the sire of both girls, the mother is Debbie's natural-born mother and Jackie's stepmother. Jackie is determined to keep the actual nature of why their parents were imprisoned a secret to Debbie. Debbie actually believes her parents are deceased. In actuality, Dad was only guilty of accessory since he did not actually partake in the people-munching party as his wife did. Ol mom takes "eating out" to a whole new low haha. Once they are released Ma and Pa Canibal reside in an old, creepy farmhouse on the outskirts of town. Jackie becomes concerned when Debbie begins hanging around with a tough street gang. A murder ensues but the body has disappeared and well guessy guessy who was involved? It seems as though little old Debbie has some secrets of her own. In the meantime, Jackie tries to keep the peace in the family by having secret visits with her parents and tries to ward off her stepmom's crazy ass hunger by bringing her some..well.."special" parcels. Dad swears mom has been cured of her hunger but has she? Will bratty-ass Debbie inherit the curse? No spoilers from me y'all! Slightly gory with a really dark atmosphere, not for the faint of heart. This is a British-made film. Great surprise ending here.
VERDICT: 3 Soul Claps
