Waxwork II: Lost in Time Reviews

    muy larga y aburrida, raya en el cliché y no es en el tono serio como la primera.

    What I like about this movie was the cheesy parts. What I didn't like was it wasn't much of a sequel. I wish they would have followed the same concept as the first one.

    Alexander Godunov is an evil demon who makes a bunch of teens travel through time and space to different alternate dimensions where they must survive what are essentially different horror sub genres (silent horror films, zombies films, vampires & werewolf films, and medieval knights?). One black and white horror film sequence that includes a bit part for Bruce Campbell is pretty fun, but the rest of the film is rather lifeless. I suppose there are a few other bright points, such as the few minutes of a "Dawn of the Dead" homage or when one of the teen's father (John Carpenter regular George "Buck" Flowers) drinks from the same generic beer can that was in "Repo Man," which gives the film a few points, but there's not enough to really recommend it. The decent cast includes Zach Galligan, Martin Kemp, John Ireland, Jim Metzler, Patrick MacNee, David Carradine, Maxwell Caulfield, and even Drew Barrymore as "Vampire Victim #1."

    Totally lame follow up. There's not even a waxwork! And they just go into full camp/goofy territory. A couple kind of interesting parodies sprinkled throughout, like Alien and the Haunting, but once they get stuck in Midevil times it's a total bore.

    Still cheesy and intriguing at once, this one differs from horror and into black comedy, sacrificing what could have been scary ideas.

    Not too much to say about this movie, other than it has loads of bad acting, but is very fun! Bruce Campbell really makes the movie, and the random, silly gore just ads to the campiness. Good concept and an interesting venture from the first movie's plot. I really enjoyed it! You're sure to laugh!

    Crazy and uneven, the movie serves as a low-budget tribute to popular classics. Parodying films like Alien, Dawn of the Dead, Nosferatu, Godzilla, and much more, it makes itself quite memorable. Not to mention several familiar faces, like Bruce Campbell and David Carradine. The plot is a mess though, and most of the film is in the medieval ages, which is boring compared to the rest of the time-jumps. The characters aren't too great and the overall story is thin. It is worth watching for the cheesy effects and nods to other movies though.

    Sequel to the fabulously fantastical 1988 film, this starts where the previous ended. A murderous hand (ala Evil Dead 2) survives the inferno and goes on to spray mustard in a gal's face (oh, and kill her daddy). Opening a time-portal, the two surviving kids travel from one time-place to another. Basically the same premise as the first film, with a different framing story. A number of hilariously graphic events befall them in these alternate realities which include send-ups to Dawn of the Dead, The Raven, Alien, Frankenstein, Jack the Ripper, Godzilla, Nosferatu, and several others. Some are better than others with a few dragging on. Bruce Campbell and David Caradine both star (guess the director got them from his previous film Sundown: The Vampire in Retreat)! With its comedy and gore, this is a sequel as good as its predecessor in almost every way!
