Audience Reviews for The Dentist 2: Brace Yourself


Disappointing sequel to an average Slasher, The Dentist 2: Brace Yourself is essentially the same film, and watching this film, you realize that a sequel to The Dentist was unnecessary. This film fails at being an entertaining and fun film; instead it becomes a tiresome and boring picture that just offer anything new or interesting. The script's writing is poor and there is redeeming aspect. In the end, this is a film where we've seen it all before. The gore effects of the first were great and disturbing, here they still are, but it becomes less shocking as everything that is presented on-screen is very predictable. The film is ridiculous and laughable. As the first film had a pretty terrifying thing going on, this second offering really goes against what the previous film established and plays out more like a comedy horror film. The dialogue is poorly written and there's so many cringe worthy lines. Stick with the first film, and don't bother watching this tiresome, clichéd film that just uses its gore effects to try and shock you, instead of being a terrifying horror going experience. Overall, this is a sloppy sequel to a good little low-budget Slasher. There's nothing here to really enjoy, although it may appeal to the most diehard fan of the original. I, on the other hand, really can't recommend this film as I found it to be a missed opportunity to create an effective sequel to a good film. If you liked the first, don't bother with this, as it's just an over the top version of The Dentist. Everything here just fails to thrill.

Not as good as the first one but the tooth torture scenes were almost unbearable... in other words GREAT!!!!


Ha pretty lame. I saw the first one and thought wow this is ridiculous. Then I see that theres a sequel. So I'm like why don't i give it a try. Pretty lame. I say just fast forward to all the scenes where the dentist is in the dentist office. And the dentist also faces some emo problems in this one.
