Killjoy 2: Deliverance From Evil

2002 film review by Wmpyr

Killjoy 2 is really the oddball in the series because the first half of the movie doesn't even have Killjoy, you almost feel like your watching a completely different movie. The way it was going, with a bunch of delinquent inner city kids with their officers out to renovate a house for community service. On their way there they get lost in the woods, one of the kids gets shot and and the drama could have kept going like this without any Killjoy or any slasher film monster and it would have been a decent independent film you get at Walmart. I got one of those before, Ghetto Dawg 2 and Street Survival both of which I actually enjoyed. But in this film they end up in some weird home with a voodoo lady who says she could shelter them and help with the shot kid. Now we slowly start to head into Killjoy territory. Once one of the girls summons him, the movie changes because Killjoy has such a strong presence. Even though this is a B-movie, and still campy, I feel it is less of a comedy horror than 3 or 4. Overall this may not be my favorite Killjoy film, I still like it and I recommend the entire Killjoy franchise if you like B-movie horror films from Full Moon.
