"This is the second LBP I've watched, and I had a better time than with any number of expensive Hollywood 'blockbusters'. Here's what you gotta do: ignore the lack of actual sets and other normal movie stuff, and accept that Teen Ape is a guy (at least, I assume so) wearing an ape mask. Let Go Thy Preconceptions that an entertaining film means the film makers having to spend actual money on it.
If you like South Park and the Simpsons, odds are, this is for you.
This is a parody of the Kill Bill movies, but far better than any number of Saturday Night Live sketches. It's fair to say I got more laughs per minute with Mulva 2 than I did out of a whole Saturday Night Live show. Part of the laughs come from it all being an injoke.
I liked the Kill Bill movies, by the way.
Mulva 1 (which I am halfway thru) involved a delightfully dorky girl, a continual chocolate smear on her lips, who goes out for Halloween night to get her beloved candy. Unfortunately, there are some zombies in the way. That film was amateurish--the acting is, uh, variable--but that's part of the charm.
In Mulva 2, five years have passed. Mulva was put into a coma by a fiendish gang of, well I'm not sure of what. When she wakes up, she wants revenge. When she wakes up, she is also a different actress. Apparently the original actress was not available, so Chris Seaver, the writer/director, got an actual actress from Troma Films (and who was in the original Mulva in a secondary role), Debbie Rochon. No offense to the other actors, but Rochon clearly has experience & tons of presence. She has exactly the right tone: she takes none of the film seriously. There is also a running gag about how the more statuesque Rochon has "filled out" while being in a coma.
There isn't much of a plot, so don't worry about spoilers.
Basically, Mulva goes through Bill's (Teen Ape's) evil crew, and finally reaches him at the end, for a showdown. Along the way, Seaver deftly parodies key scenes in the Kill Bill films. Somehow the lack of money adds to the fun. And there's plenty of gore--people lose their heads, and I don't mean emotionally--but it's so silly it becomes a great joke (as opposed to the serious violence in Kill Bill).
And, at about 65 minutes, Seaver moves the film briskly along. It simply does not have time to drag.
This is recommended for anyone who does not have a Teen Ape up his/her butt, and can get in on the joke.
Don't believe the "rave" reviews on this.

"Well Written,Moving, Talented , Brilliant, Extravagant, Amazing, Funny!
Visionary! Comedy Horror! Bloody!
Words that have no meaning in the film Mulva 2.
To give this dvd a vote higher than 2 means one of four things.
1. You haven't actually watched Mulva 2.
2. You starred in Mulva 2.
3. You gave Chris Seaver money to shoot Mulva 2/Friend of Chris Seaver
4. You are Chris Seaver.
Whatever the writer/director/guy in blackface, Chris Seaver was on when he decided to waste more money on this "film" (I use the term only because a cheap camcorder does count as film), he should share with the rest of the world. Maybe then people outside of his circle of friends would find his films as funny and amusing as they do.
Oh, don't forget! The people who starred in this film ,who gallivant about the internet posting positive five star reviews!
It happened to be those very same reviews that tricked me into believing this was a partway decent film. Good work.
I wish someone had been honest about their review of this film , because then I would have not wasted my time or rental on it.
Let me make a couple of things clear. Don't assume that people are hating on this film for no reason, there are 62 minutes worth of reasons to hate this films.
This movie does have a message: No matter who endorses your film, no matter how much money you have , no matter who stars in it, a poorly written , produced and directed film is exactly what it is.
There is nothing funny about this movie , between Seaver in Blackface and the poor audio work, you either don't hear the jokes or you've stopped paying attention.
If you don't believe me on how bad this movie actually is, look at the "Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought", there you'll see movies that are on par with this movie," Unwatchable Garbage"
Deadlands the Rising, Filthy Mc Nasty (another Seaver film.) Quest for the Egg Salad ( another awful seaver film); But if you enjoy poor excuses for independent films, you're welcome to purchase/rent this.
Just don't say you weren't warned."
