The sequel to the critically acclaimed [url=http://www.dennisandronnie.com/movies/horror_small.mov]Slash Movie![/url], Slash Movie 2 has nothing at all to do with the original.

Featuring the largest cast ever assembled for a Dennis & Ronnie Films production, and the longest running time of just under 14 minutes, Slash Movie 2 follows the story of an ex porn star who gets her revenge on all of the people who got her fired.

The amazing cast includes some of your all time favorites! Including Janson Fangio! Josiah White! Jordan Rousseau! And also some young actors making their film debut! Such as Whitney Hayes! And Paul Romero! And keep an eye out for Dennis & Ronnie veterans Drew Powell! And Bryce Morrison! And then some!

Shot over three days this last December, and slowly roasted to perfection, Slash Movie 2 is your new God.

Enjoy it, or suffer.

Thanks to Cantaclaro for doing the special effects! They look good. Worship him.

Amazing!

You're really crafting yourself quiet a style here, Aculag. The specific style of storytelling, acting and humour appeals to me directly, and it's great to see a director really stamping his own personality onto his work. You're one of FXhome's true auteurs. smile

This was definately a step up for you in just about every area. Brilliantly warped and quirky characters, portrayed superbly by the whole cast, who all seemed to have a wilful disregard for their own dignity.

Technically this was an improvement too, with camera and sound work doing some interesting stuff with definite style. Makeup and costume design was absolutely spot-on, too - really sold the characters. It's an area most people seem to overlook, but you hit it right on the money.

Fabulous.

To me, that was an interesting story, with a couple of good laughs.

There are a few problems with camerawork (autofocus shifts during one scene, and some of the camera/lens moves seem a little off), which I feel could have been avoided.

Also, the audio is pretty poor, as the dialogue is very quiet in some scenes, and the music just stops at scene changes etc.

I really liked the idea of rewinding the film, and explaining what had happened before, but I think that would have been much better to have that acted out fully, rather than just having the text explaning what had happened.

Some of the death scenes were pretty funny, and the little guy with glasses is pure class.

Overall, I'd give 4 stars smile

Cheers,
Arktic.

I enjoyed this. Fun plot, & excellent camerawork on the whole. I liked the texts explaining what'd happened - it fitted in with the character's entrances. Acting good, although I was hoping for something different watching the first couple of minutes (oops, did I say that out loud? or rather, write it - well, whatever) Credit to you guys for assuming funny, convincing roles.

A couple of things I didn't like so much:- Your sound is usually a bit sub-par, but it usually doesn't matter; I thought though it should have been better in the dining room, when the actors were doing their thang. They were coming out with some funny stuff & it's a pity we have to strain to hear them, when it's their performance which helps make the film enjoyable. The editing seemed a bit inconsistent. Some places it was excellent, others it wasn't. And what was that "BEAT" about?

Good work, though it's not my favourite from you.

Hello!

Anyone who saw the first Slash Movie knows that we tried to pack as many horror movie cliche's into it as possible, and it ended up being one of the worst movies we've ever made, while still being quite funny.

We tried to do the same kind of thing with this one, in that all of the murders take place rooms away from where everyone else is, but no one ever finds the bodies, and everyone goes off looking on their own.

Thanks for the comments!

That kitchen scene where we're all talking is one thing that I definitely wish I could change, because I want more shots in there, and better sound, but certain sacrifices have to be made when your actors are all on screen at once, and you're one of them, and the four of you are the only ones there. Hehehehehee. Excuses, excuses...

A fall so good, I wasn't entirely sure whether it was deliberate or not. Funniest thing I saw in the whole of Friday.

I loved this movie. I didnt think the audio was bad at all, except for a few things that we'll blame on compression. The story was good and I did like the text explaining what happened, I think it worked better than if you would have had them act out each scenario. Good job.

Objective analysis follows...


Acting, while not particularly entertaining (except Mcmurphys part), was at least well done and interesting.

Plot was original

Shot composition was ill concieved on more than on occassion.

Actual camera work was handheld and thus, very obvious.

amount of skin? excellente.

Overall? i'd say that i like some of your others better.

My favorite Eugene Levy line is from Splash when they are all three getting away in the taxi at the end.

Levy, turning to the other two: "I'd tell my friends...if I had any."

I'm a fan of Soderberg, and I do believe we're all Eugene Levy fans. I don't see the influence, though.

Porn, intrigue, and murder! who could ask for more? Brilliant, my boys Brilliant!

Your odd sense of humor still appeals to me as well. I guess that means my sense of humor is odd too. Vivica's death scene was classic!

Ditto on Tarns comments
Ecceptionally composed
Elequeintly executed
S'uppurbly rendered
Not bad at all
Ubiquitously presented
Timeless entertainment my friends
Sorry I did not see it sooner.


Thanks again for a good laugh.

I liked it man. It had a campy feel to it that never dipped into just plain silly. There were a few scenes where the camera work was a little wonky, but not enough to take away from the story. You seem to have a knack for establishing tone and atmosphere, and I appreciate the dry wit of Dennis & Ronnie flicks. Those elements hold my interest in the story and make it easy to overlook a few shaky handcam scenes.

Well, that and a hot chick in a black bra wearing a thong. Good stuff!

This film contains the most painful, agonizing and creepy dead ever. The stabbing of the butt. That sent chills down my back and made my bung hurt, I couldn't sit down the rest of the day.

In some ways I liked it a little more that Slash 3 because this one had more of a story line.

Overall: OK
