Synopsis by Cavett Binion

Less a sequel than a pointless remake (the original was actually titled Criminally Insane), this weird little film stars Priscilla Alden in the title role, which she might easily have researched by watching a few John Waters films. We join the story to find hefty, snack-crazed Ethel Janowski a regular fixture at the asylum since her committal more than a decade ago for the murder of her grandmother -- and anyone else who dared to stand between her and the refrigerator. Unfortunately, her dietary requirements seem to have depleted the hospital's budget to such an extent that they are forced to farm her out to a lower-security facility, where the cooking is far superior...and it's binge time again for the large-boned psychopath. Amazingly, this direct-to-video obscurity was followed two years later by yet another sequel, Death Nurse.
