It’s about an hour long.
Okay, I guess I should get more into it than that. Here goes:
A couple of years ago, a group of people, led by director Joe Ostrica, decided to see if they could make a movie over the course of one weekend, at the Cinema Wasteland horror convention in Ohio. Unfortunately I have never seen it, but from the clips I have seen, apparently it is an orgy of visceral kills, punk rock music, and naked ladies doing terrible, naughty things. Sounds like a recipe for success to me.
Unfortunately, it does not work out so well with this second installment. Part 2 is a tedious bore punctuated by mindless bloodshed and slightly skanky women licking booze off of each other. Maybe I am just showing my age, but vicious kills without any emotional ties are boring. Which is not to say that some of the grue isn’t impressive for such a guerrilla affair, but with no character development, or story arcs, or personalities more in-depth than a semen puddle on the floor of Penn Station, it ultimately means nothing. And as for the nekkid chicks, if I want to see hot lesbian action, I can rent a porno and see the full monty.
Now, to counter Ostrica’s claim on the commentary that to complain about this kind of movie is silly, since you knew what you were getting into when you watched it, I will say that I honestly didn’t. I was sent the DVD-R, with no image or even title, save THCM2 (which meant nothing to me) so I am forced to review it based on its own merits…of which it has few (my two favorite scenes are one where you can see, plain as day, the cameraman reflected in a glass door, and another where you can hear, plain as day, the director feeding lines to the killer). Maybe if I had sought out this film, and knew the score before watching it, I could afford to be more generous. But hey, Nathan Schiff made his films for pocket change in people’s backyards on Long Island that were less insulting than this movie.
But if you decide to make a part three, call me, okay?
There is no information on the disc, and there is no information about it online, so I don’t know. It is shot on video (duh) and generally looks good for what it is. The sound is mostly even as well, so no real complaints about image or audio quality.
If you are looking for a quick film showcasing lots of blood and titties without asking much from your frontal lobe, than this is your movie. You have been warned.
