Lorenzo...William L. Johnson
Monique...Dee Dee Austin
With his supernatural powers and magical truck that transports his prey to an abandoned warehouse, Killjoy targets first Lorenzo and his pals before then turning his sights on Jada, her best friend Monique, and her new, sensitive loverboy Jamal.
It seems almost as if the Full Mooners were trying to cross Candyman with Freddy Kruger in an attempt to create a brand new franchise killer, only to accidentally wind up with Pennywise as filtered through Chris Tucker doing his best Crypt Keeper impression. That is to say, Killjoy is one of the most painfully obnoxious villains in recent history, full of bad puns delivered in a grating voice that is like nails dragged across the chalk board.
- Why did the ice cream truck teleport people to a warehouse?
- Who the hell was Killjoy, where did he get his powers, and how did Michael know about him?
- Who was the magical homeless man, and how did he know so much?
- And, perhaps most importantly, did this really call for two sequels?
Although I've not been able to procure a copy of Killjoy 2 as of yet, a review of part 3 will be coming shortly. Here's hoping the series manages to deliver the final product that it has the potential to.
"Come alive, Killjoy! Come alive!"
