Amatuer Porn Star Killer 2 (Review)

Amateur Porn Star Killer 2

Amateur Porn Star Killer 2 (2008)

Directed by Shane Ryan

Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz.

Oh sorry about that. I'm up now. So your here for a review of APSK2 right?

No problem.

Here's the really short review.

Talking. Killing. Porn. Killing. Porn. Killing.End.

Good enough? No? Arghhh. OK. Let's see what I remember from this flick before I dozed off.

Everybody has that friend that when you go over their house, they always turn on the video camera and videotape everything. That same friend also makes you watch old video footage of him/her with her friends doing something goofy on camera. Everybody has that friend. The amatuer video star. The person who loves seeing themselves on camera. He/she is in every shot, every interview and every embarassing moment.

If you watch APSK, that's Shane Ryan.

I never watched the 1st one, just watched the trailer and a clip on YouTube. But I got the entire gist of it. But I got curious. Could a POV serial killer flick with porn work on both levels???

Umm. Ehhhh. Sorry dude.

It doesn't.

Porn and Horror (though very similar) are like oil and water. They kinda don't mix. Yeah horror initiates it's world through sex and violence, but porn is raw. And I really can't say this works.

The pseudo snuff movie genre seems to be making a come back. With the release of the Poughkeepsie Tapes, somehow we've got a new genre of POV killer movies clammoring to be seen in the world of the over drenched world of torture porn.

But thats it. If your playing in the world of torture porn (which is what APSK2 tries to do) and you add real porn, somehow it loses the point.

If you read all that, the plot revolves around a pseudo doc about Brandon who has murdered over 22 girls. Between the main storyline which he stalks a victim played by Kai Lanette (who cowrote the movie), we see various old video footage flashbacks of Brandon and his murders of various girls (being identified as "Victim #3" and such)

The dialogue is cluttered, improvised and reality tv show-ish. The slow tension burns into obliviousness. And the climax (pun intended because I'm fuckin bored of writing this review) was just boring. Real porn movie endings are better.

I quote a line from Scream to end this rather jaded review.

Sidney: "You sick fucks, you've seen one too many movies!"

Billy: "Now Sid, don't you blame the movies, movies don't create psychos, movies make psychos more creative!"

Shane Ryan wanted to be a porn star and instead made a torture porn flick with real porn.

Kudos to him for being creative.
