Creepy, entertaining sequel to the successful original. Surviving sister Brigitte lives alone in her room, taking Monkshood (normally poisonous for us mere humans) to keep her werewolf tendencies at bay (no pun intended). Unfortunately, a skirmish with the law finds her stuck in a drug-rehabilitation centre where a counsellor insists that she stay until she can get herself off the “junk” that she’s been injecting. Brigitte tries to tell them that letting her take the stuff is a really good idea, but her pleas fall on deaf ears. Instead, she has to rely on two residents at her institution: one, an unethical employee who trades drugs for sex, the other a nosy little girl who lives there with her burn-victim grandmother and won’t leave Brigitte alone until she can find out her secret. Good characters, even better performances, great suspense and some wonderfully fun gore, this is a good one for a late night.
