Plot
We pick up exactly where the last frames of the previous installment left off, with the main protagonist’s corpse being retrieved from a church's graveyard by a female who, contrary to what some presumed, is not his girlfriend. This said, Betty, Rob's ex-lover from the previous film, has a role in this film and is still played by Beatrice Manowski.
Twenty minutes, in, the inevitable happens. The movie lives up to its reputation and shows necrophilia in all its glory, as Rob’s corpse gets desecrated. The delayed frame effect is still used during intercourse, as if the necrophilic scenes weren’t powerful enough. This film is more polished and stylized than the previous one, but it doesn't make it good.
It crumbles when it becomes surreal and pretentious, which it often does. Like Part 1, it then goes on weird tangents that bring nothing to the story. These diversions are so blatant that we forget that this is a movie about necrophilia. The biggest difference between this sequel and its predecessor is that this one is an intermittent comedy. This said, it's never funny.
