Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Suggests what porn might be like if it existed only to make you feel viciously ill."
‑ Wesley Morris, Boston Globe
"On the bright side, Yuzna brings back special effects maestro Screaming Mad George."
‑ Walter Chaw, Film Freak Central
"A tired retread that doesn't maximize on the novelty of its prison setting."
‑ Jeremiah Kipp,
"This director's work has varied from the sublime ("The Dentist") to the awful ("Faust"). This lies somewhere in between, more toward the good than the bad."

"[Director Brian] Yuzna is clearly having a lot of fun with this admittedly absurd material, and makes the smart decision of having his actors play things straight."
‑ David Nusair, Reel Film Reviews
"Incredibly stupid but mercilessly funny."
‑ Jovanka Vuckovic, Rue Morgue Magazine
"Combs is still cool but the suroundings don't do it for me."
‑ Stefan Birgir Stefansson,
"If you ever wanted to see a rodent engaged in a boxing match with a severed zombie penis, then this is the movie for you . . ."
‑ James O'Ehley, Movie Gurus
"A follow-up that pays homage to its lineage while marking a little new territory of its own."
‑ Scott Weinberg,
