ART OF THE DEVIL II (2005)
Well this Thai movie is very gory and that's about the only thing it has going for it. There is a simple story of a teacher getting revenge for something that her students did to her but I think the main idea is just to showcase a bunch of gore FX. A girl plucks her own eyes out for some reason involving a voodoo curse, and a bunch of people are tortured to death by having their toenails and teeth pulled out and then a guy gets blow-torched and has the skin ripped off his legs in the nastiest scene. If you're a fan of movies like SAW and HOSTEL and want something with an even nastier edge this might be a good time for you. I found the whole thing pretty annoying with tons of flashbacks and what I think were dream sequences to add to the confusion. I never saw part one but apparently this isn't even really a sequel anyway but just a retitling. There is a part three, which is actually part two to this film(confused yet?), but I don't think I'm gonna bother wasting my time with that one.
