By the late 80s, the original had started to build up a hefty cult reputation, so two sequels were made back-to-back for Shapiro-Glickenhaus. Duane Bradley (Kevin Van Hentenryck) and his telepathic mutant twin brother Belial return. They go to live with freak sympathizer Granny Ruth (former singer Annie Ross) in a big mansion with dozens of other similar deformed social outcasts. Tabloid magazine reporters threaten to expose them, so it's time for revenge. The budget is much higher this time around, the acting is better and they've upped the ante in terms of gore and prosthetic make-up fx, but a cold, mean-spirited streak keeps this from being as much fun as it could have been.
