All movies have a audience and then there are the ones there just for the popcorn!
Mia Goth like the title says "X-traordinary" as Pearl. We watch Pearl as a young adult yearning for her husband to come home from the war. Wishing to find a way to prove to everybody she has the talent to become the dancer she always dreamed of being. While her overbearing mother tries to keep Pearl trapped at the farm helping take care of her sick dad, we see Pearl become unhinged. Her door has been slammed too much.
I have to say I have always enjoyed this second film better than the first(Sorry Jamie Lee Curtis) and not for the young Lisa Schrage running around a locker room in her complete birthday suit(but is a treat for anyone that is interested) but for me it is how the kills were more entertaining and how scenes of this film felt like it was paying homage to great horror movies before it, also I can't forget…
A giallo feeling film that simply means acceptance of what or who one really is but could of been so much better by filling in the plot holes with explanations and cutting out the unnecessary fillers. This film felt a little dull with the long drawn out unnecessary scenes and confusing without the explanations of how, and why.
Not a bad film for its time but could of been so much more entertaining.
