The concept of Death Tube is actually pretty good and could easily work for a film like this: an excuse to kill a roomful of people in interesting ways while the people in question try and solve the mystery as to why they’re there and how they can escape. The problem with DEATH TUBE 2 is that the kills aren’t interesting, the people are too stupid to figure out what’s going on (save for one, and even she’s a little dim), and the chance of escape is next to zero, making the whole point of the movie totally moot.
This is where I’d like to say the film was so bad it’s good, but sadly… it’s not. It’s so bad that it’s boring, and being bored while watching a movie (which is supposed to entertain you) is about as bad as it gets. But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a handful of WTF moments sprinkled throughout that only the Japanese could deliver. For starters, the killer / giant yellow bear mascot. WTF? There’s not just one of them but an army of them mulling around this abandoned building looking to kill these people any chance they get. Then there’s the games: at one point, they’re forced to play musical chairs, the one without a seat dies (???), then they get stuck in a stairwell while searching for an exit that’s literally covered with a sheet—they walk by about 40 times before figuring that one out, and then there’s the impromptu bear mascot Thriller dance. Yes, the Michael Jackson song. No, no the real song but one you’d find programmed on a synthesizer. Seriously… WTF?
But are there redeeming values anywhere? There’s a chick dressed up like a maid who’s pretty hot, but sadly… she doesn’t get naked. Come to think of it, the only real redeeming value the film has are all of the WTF moments—it’s just so random and bizarre and weird.
Audio: 2.0 mono in native Japanese (with English subtitles). Nothing special to report about here.
