After not having quite died at the end of Jan-Gel, the Beast from the East, caveman Jan-Gel has been taken into care by a gang of gypsies, led by Madame Mitzi (Mitzi Reid), who frequently rob video stores & use Jan-Gel as their look-out man. However, learning of a giant that helps the gypsies, FBI agent Conrad Brooks soon figures it must be his old nemesis, Jan-Gel.

But then report gets out that the giant was shot in the head at one of the gang's stick-outs ... but has not quite died. However, looking for him at local hospitals or doctors proves to be futile, so soon there is just one option left: Doctor Rockula (Joseph Miller), a plastic surgeon fallen from grace who since resides at the local cemetary, "experimenting on dead animals".

Of course, Rockula has treated Jan-Gel, but soon enough, Jan-Gel's anasthetic wears off, & he kills both Rockula & his assistant Gor (Grady Stiles III) & goes on a rampage ... but with Conrad Brooks close behind.

Eventualy though, Jan-Gel has chosen the railtracks as his escape route ... but when a train heads his way, he, the caveman, doesn't quite know how to react & is run over by the train ...

& somehow, Conrad Brooks gets a film deal out of it.

By the way, Dale Clukey, who played Jan-Gel in the first movie, is here seen as the title beast only briefly (in snippets that might very well be stock footage), but soon Jan-Gel is bandaged beyond recognition & is then played by Garland Hewlett, Marvin Kennedy & even Conrad Brooks himself.


Of course the second Jan-Gel film is about as low-budget & unpolished as Jan-Gel, the Beast from the East, & again it's not a good film, but yet again, you might find it funny for its shortcomings & its unserious approach to the genre.
