The 1999 UK video was cut by 51 seconds by the BBFC "to remove sadistic details". Deletions were made to close-ups of bloody detail and degrading/sadistic dialogue during the "Truth or Tooth" torture scene. The 2001 DVD featured the same cut print. See more »
Brian Yuzna is cast as a saviour by genre fans, and "The Dentist 2", along with the cherished "Society" might give you some idea why. Although the film offers little that could not be found in its prequel, it is somewhat better made, efficently exploiting dentophobia and riffing on the trust involved in a doctor-patient relationship. For the gorehounds, suffice to say three of the four people I watched this with walked out in disgust: taking the place of traditional death sequences are gleeful bouts of unanaesthetised dental destruction, performed with the aid of convincing models in unflinching close up. By this second outing Corbin Bernstein is really inhabiting the role of Dr. Feinstone, and his affectionately campy turn provides the film with much of its drive and humour. in one hilarious sequence he desperately admonishes himself in the shower: "nutCASE, nutBALL, wacko, loony..."
Though self evidently not to all tastes, this film certainly hits a nerve (sorry, that was accidental) and is made with some intelligence and respect for its intended audience. check.
