Slime City Massacre (2010)

Greg Lamberson's 1988 cult-classic, SLIME CITY, has oozed its way in to the hearts of Horror fan with its over-the-top humor and outrageous gore, so the announcement of a sequel some twenty years later came as a shocking surprise. The film itself, unfortunately, isn't quite as welcome. New York City has been devastated by a dirty bomb, leaving only a few mangled survivors to struggle on in the wasted remains of "Slime City." Cory and Alexa decide take refuge here while avoiding the draft, but in their search for food, they come across a secret stash of unexpirable yogurt and elixir that were left behind by a death cult decades earlier. After sharing the food with another pair of squatters, the four are transformed into gooey superheroes of sorts, who hit the streets to clean up crime in Slime City! SLIME CITY MASSACRE is an absolute mess, and a bore to watch. The frequent flashbacks only detract from the film, and add no greater depth to the series, whatsoever. Although it hardly seems possible, the awful make-up work and bargain-basement effects are even worse than before, with a surprising lack of splatter until the final reel. Cory and Alexa are hardly compelling characters, and any attempts at social commentary fall flat. It begs the question "Why?" What was so important about this story that the filmmakers felt they had to make a sequel? Lloyd Kaufman's "Special Disappearance" at the start of the film should clue you in to the target audience, but most will find SLIME CITY MASSACRE to be a disappointing waste of time.

Rating: 2/10.
