After not having quite died at the end of Jan-Gel,
the Beast from the East, caveman Jan-Gel has been taken into care
by a gang of gypsies, led by Madame Mitzi (Mitzi Reid), who frequently rob
video stores & use Jan-Gel as their look-out man. However, learning of
a giant that helps the gypsies, FBI agent Conrad Brooks soon figures it
must be his old nemesis, Jan-Gel.
But then report gets out that the giant was shot in the head at one of
the gang's stick-outs ... but has not quite died. However, looking for him
at local hospitals or doctors proves to be futile, so soon there is just
one option left: Doctor Rockula (Joseph Miller), a plastic surgeon fallen
from grace who since resides at the local cemetary, "experimenting on
Of course, Rockula has treated Jan-Gel, but soon enough, Jan-Gel's
anasthetic wears off, & he kills both Rockula & his assistant Gor
(Grady Stiles III) & goes on a rampage ... but with Conrad Brooks
Eventualy though, Jan-Gel has chosen the railtracks as his escape route
... but when a train heads his way, he, the caveman, doesn't quite know
how to react & is run over by the train ...
& somehow, Conrad Brooks gets a film deal out of it.
By the way, Dale Clukey, who played Jan-Gel in the first movie, is here
seen as the title beast only briefly (in snippets that might very well be
stock footage), but soon Jan-Gel is bandaged beyond recognition & is
then played by Garland Hewlett, Marvin Kennedy & even Conrad Brooks
Of course the second Jan-Gel film is about as low-budget
& unpolished as Jan-Gel,
the Beast from the East, & again it's not a good film, but yet
again, you might find it funny for its shortcomings & its unserious
approach to the genre.
