Stripped to Kill 2: Live Girls, the sequel to the excellent Stripped to Kill, directed by Katt Shea Ruben, is a lurid, exploitation film which has none of the humor, suspense or eroticism of the original. As in the original, exotic dancers are being murdered at their strip club in a variety of bloody and inventive ways. A psychic is brought in to help solve the murders. Director Katt Shea Ruben has a great pace and visual sense and works well within the confines of her tight budget, but this film, despite her best efforts, remains a formula slasher film with little to recommend it except for the beautiful women in various stages of undress. Those who loved Stripped to Kill will be disappointed in this routine sequel which captures none of the appeal of the original.
