Plot:
When prostitutes start turning up dead, the police can only assume its the work of one man, the Fantom Kiler. A detective is in charge of the case, and will do anything to bring the Fantom Kiler to justice. Including putting the women he is suppose to protect, in danger in attempt to trap the mad man.

Our thoughts:
Well this will be a short review as nothing has changed from the first "Fantom Kiler" movie, the same absurdity and stupidity but with a new batch of naked women to ogle. "Fantom Kiler 2" really does nothing to set itself apart from the first movie, other than loosely relating a few characters, and the supposed story, this time being about a detective who's after the Fantom Kiler rather just a series of women getting naked and then being killed.

With that being said, it's really not much of an improvement compared to the first but it is also not any worse. The scenes where the women loose their clothes aren't nearly as ridiculous but they do have their moments. Such as a woman stripping in front of a car, where she can't see who the driver but still allows herself to fondled and groped by the unknown driver. Granted she was doing it to trap the killer, but it was still fairly ludicrous, especially when she realizes it wasn't the Fantom Kiler. Didn't really seem to bother her that much about being felt up by a stranger.

Alright so the sleaze/nudity is still the same, so lets go on to the death scenes. Same thing. Still completely cheesy and some of the most ridiculous special effects work you'll see for any horror movie. I will give them credit though, as it appears they did honestly try to make the death scenes not as shitty compared to the first movie. Still, when the blood looks like paint, is obviously smeared on rather than appearing to be an injury caused by a knife. Then of course the women manage to strike sexy poses, or lay in a provocative manner while they are being killed and or dying. Which is exactly what any filmmaker should do who is filming a woman being killed. While I don't know for sure, but I'm sure it is quite natural for women, who are getting stabbed and are about to die, to start throwing out model poses as if they are going to be the centerfold girl for the next issue of Playboy.

To be fair though, they aren't the only bad actors in the movie, as the man playing the role of the detective, who's only goal is to bring the Fantom Kiler to justice. Is atrocious to say the least, so with the bad acting it only makes the story that they threw into the movie, in an attempt to make it seem like they aren't making a skin flick, only that much worse. The unique lighting is still present, as well as the music video style editing. So if you liked the first movie, or still just want to watch a movie that is nothing more than excuse to parade women around in front of the camera naked. Then by all means, watch this sequel, for everyone else, just continue on skipping over them.


Positive things:
- Still plenty of hot but new "Polish" women running around.
Negative things:
- Still trying to be something its not, all while filling the movie with the same bad acting, effects, story, and editing found in the first "Fantom Kiler" flick.

Rating:
Gore: 2/5
Nudity: 3.5/5
Story: 2/5
Effects: 1/5
Comedy: 1/5
