Feast 2: Sloppy Seconds (2008)
Feast 2 starts out where Feast left off. Its the morning after the attack on the bar and the monsters have moved to the next town over. An all girl biker gang leader sees that her sister's is dead and finds The Bartender hiding under a truck and takes him with her to find who killed her sister. Joined by the rest of the gang, they go to the town and find the monsters have begun their terror. The samll town of "Smalltown" is being over run and a small group of a used car dealership owner, his #1 salesman, and his cheating wife (who is cheating on him with the salesman) join the biker gang, along with 2 midget wrestlers and their grandmother.
The story progresses as they find different safe areas to hide in until that place eventually goes to hell and they have to find a new place. All the while trying to find a plan to get to the town jail and get the town meth-head to let them in. There is alot of monster fighting and even a monster autopsy, which is one of the most over the top things I've ever seen, and you'll have to see it to understand fully. The monsters continue to pick off victims and mangle them from the inside out. There is no shortage of blood, guts and face melting.
Eventually the monsters get to them on their roof top sanctuary where they have built a catapult to try to launch one of the wrestlers onto the roof of the jail. The group tries to fend them off in a "Whack-A-Mole" fashion, bashing the monsters with whatever they can grab. Bullets fly and the movie ends with more of the same blood, guts and dark humor we see throughout. Its an open ending that should lead directly into part 3, which is already made.
Feast 2 isn't for everyone. If you can't take a (big) dose of humor and sarcasm with your horror then pass on it. If you can't take potentially offensive material, again, pass on it. If you can get down with cheese and some serious gross out moments to go along with your rubber suit monsters you'll enjoy Feast 2, just as you did Feast. The laughs were non-stop, the action was great, and you'll never hear me complain about gorgeous naked girls with tattoos. The sheer absurdity that this movie bases itself on cannot truely be explained through words, just go rent or buy it and see how crazy it gets.
