We gave it an D-

Writer-director Matthew Bright carelessly speeds down the road to excess with this direct-to-video sequel to his 1996 Freeway, a violently comic twist on the Little Red Riding Hood story. With less camp and fewer laughs, this time he takes on Hansel and Gretel via a desensitized tale of a bulimic, projectile-vomiting con named White Girl (Lyonne) and the solo-sex-obsessed, serial-killing Cyclona (Maria Celedonio), who, after breaking out of jail, end up in the Mexican lair of Sister Gomez (Gallo), a mother figure to Cyclona. Reel Goodies (1:20) Gomez reveals herself to be a well-endowed man involved in kiddie porn and oven-stuffing cannibilism. The Last Detail Homicide’s talented Max Perlich is unrecognizable as Gomez’s hunchbacked, leg-biting sidekick.
