FACES OF DEATH 2 (junk 2) (1981 JAPAN U.S.) D/W: "CONAN LE CILAIRE"/ "ALAN BLACK" (JOHN ALAN SCHWARTZ) P: ROSILYN T. SCOTT
Dr. Francis B. Gross (Michael Carr) dons some natty threads and shades, gets out of his "laboratory", rides a motorbike and even participates in an easter egg hunt (!) as he hosts this sequel. The difference from the original is that apart from a faked-looking PCP addict hostage situation, everything else is real. This includes a look at third degree burn victims, accidents on the autobahn, stunts gone wrong, rodeo bullriders (a man is trampled underfoot as an upbeat jew's harp is plucked on the soundtrack!), air and train disasters, animal cruelty, victims of napalm attack, weapons of war ("one colossal suicide pact") etc. Neither grisly enough for today's jaded viewers (though it does have it's moments) and not as funny as the audacious original was.
