review by
Mike Haberfelner

Detectives Williams (Gary LeRoi Gray) and Miller (Eugena Washington) follow up a contact they find on the computer of Joseph (Nate Lovell), one of the murder victims in Part 1, Klaus (Drew Hinckley), a closet gay crossdresser, and when wanting to search the hotel room Joseph and Klaus used to meet, they get separated, with Miller following a suspect and Williams entering the room, finding Klaus there - and brutally slaughtering him. Miller enters the room soon afterwards, finds Williams covered in blood next to the dead body of Klaus, but believes him when he tells her had caught the killer red-handed but he got away. Heck, even the chief of police (Leilani Smith) believes the story. Meanwhile, journalist Fredrick (Richardson Pierre) makes a name of himself reporting about the case ... and comes closer to the truth than Williams likes so he starts to send threatening messages to Fredrick - and in fact he's one of the keys to what's wrong with Williams who back in the day studied criminology together with Fredrick's boyfriend Phillip (Danny Royce), and a story unfolds about pent up homosexuality, paternal abuse, sexual abuse, and an ever growing rage against all things gay ...


A pretty cool conclusion to the story set up in Part 1, especially since it continues to not strictly follow genre patterns, instead reveals the killer very early and very surprisingly (at least to the audience) and spends the rest of the film looking for motives, doing so jumping back and forth in time rather deliberately and not always giving the audience fair warning. And a clever script and genre-savvy direction make this work rather beautifully while a solid ensemble cast keeps things grounded, granting really solid thriller entertainment.
