Synopsis: As Johnny Blaze hides out in Eastern Europe, he is called upon to stop the devil, who is trying to take human form.

Reaction: Over the top and a bit psychedelic. Fun if it's what you're in the mood for, but it's not a great film overall.

Personal Rating: 8/10

Random Trivia For This Title:

  • Unlike the previous film, a full transformation from Johnny Blaze to Ghost Rider is never shown. We see the before and after, but never the actual transition.
  • While Carrigan is driving the ambulance and testing his new powers of decay, one of the items he picks up is a Twinkie. Nothing happens to it, thus bringing to mind the urban legend that Twinkies last forever or simply that plastic wrappers do not decay.
  • Eva Mendes turned down the option to reprise her role.
  • The Ghost Rider's skull has been redesigned for this sequel. The new skull appears to be black and charred, indicating that the skull is actually on fire as opposed to the clean fleshless skull simply cloaked in fire in the previous film.
  • The flashing image of the "devil" is Jerry Springer.
