Gory teen-scream sequel includes teen drinking and sex.
A Lot or a Little?
What you will—and won't—find in this movie.
Most teen characters have a surprising amount of freedom and seem to do whatever they want with few -- if any -- negative consequences. There's a half-hearted attempt to stress the importance of family bonds, but bloody violence seems to be the main message.
Positive Role Models
Some characters are obviously negative role models -- or serial killers. Others have positive intentions but ultimately make negative choices.
Violence & Scariness
The grossest scenes involve violent stabbings, with blood pouring out of open wounds and spraying all over. There's also some choking and a severed head, as well as a girl who gets charred to death.

Sex, Romance & Nudity
Several teen characters make out heavily, removing their shirts to expose bare chests (guys) and bras (girls). Actual sex is implied but not shown.

Infrequent, low-level swearing, such as "son of a bitch," "pissed," and "slut."

Drinking, Drugs & Smoking
Teen characters plan a party in an abandoned building, where they drink alcohol (including flaming shots) with no real consequences. Some characters also use prescription medication to get high.

Parents Need to Know
Parents need to know that this violent teen drama is the sequel to the made-for-TV horror film My Super Psycho Sweet 16 and, like it's predecessor, is sometimes hide-your-eyes gory, with blood spurting out of wounds, teen schemers catching on fire, and a lot of sudden action designed to make you jump. There's also some underage drinking that takes place at an unsupervised party in an abandoned building, where young guests drink beer, down flaming shots, and drink straight out of liquor bottles. There's some sexy stuff, too, mainly in the form of heavy make-outs in which teens remove their shirts and straddle each other.

What's the Story?
Picking up where My Super Psycho Sweet 16 left off, MY SUPER PSYCHO SWEET 16 II finds harried teen heroine Skye Rotter (Lauren McKnight) running scared from the law -- and her serial killer father, Charlie Rotter (Alex Van), who just killed scores of Skye's fellow students during a blowout party at the local roller rink. With nowhere else to turn, Skye looks up the mother (Mindy Crist) who gave her up for adoption at birth and meets the half-sister (Kirsten Prout) she never knew she had. But her longtime friends (Chris Zylka and Matt Angel) who survived the slaying are determined to find her and bring her home.
Is It Any Good?
If you're looking for real thrills, there are far better -- and scarier -- options than this movie. The frightfully lame made-for-TV movie that inspired this gory sequel was, in fact, a bloodied-up spin-off of the popular MTV reality series My Super Sweet 16 (a show that celebrates outrageous teen parties with budgets that can hit the hundreds of thousands). So it stands to reason that the second chapter of the Rotter clan saga isn't anything to scream about, particularly if you missed the first installment.
Talk to Your Kids About ...
Families can talk about how accurately the movie portrays high school life, especially when it comes to sex, drugs, and alcohol consumption. Would a party like the one in the film really be possible? Do you know of anyone who's abused alcohol -- or prescription medication?
