Editorial Reviews

Entering a seamy underground world of peep shows, nude clubs and live Internet sex is David Huxley (Johnathon Schaech, Hush), an aspiring politician who has everything to lose. Secretly filmed in asteamy three-way with his fiancée Tish (Lori Heuring, Mulholland Dr.) and a gorgeous young model (Zita Görög, Underworld), David is desperate to find the extortionist who's demanding an exorbitant amount of money for the negatives. But when the blackmail trail ends in murder and David's kidnapped, Tish must come up with a $5 million ransom or her fiancé's once-promising career, and life, may come to a dead end.

Even with a cursory perusal of the cover art and the use of a few excess brain cells not killed by drinking, it is obvious to the casual viewer that 8MM 2 - Unrated and Exposed bares no resemblance to the fantastic original starring Nicolas Cage & Joaquin Phoenix (get that out your head right away), and written by the dude, Andrew Kevin Walker, who wrote the earth-shattering "Se7en". The film-makers are using the "8MM" brand for recogniton-sake (i.e. they owned the rights, ergo - they can sell this "brand as something familiar). However, the movie manages to combine solid acting, nice locations and good production values to make a dark thriller that is both salacious and entertaining. The film is about an attractive young couple (played by gorgeous, fresh faces Johnathon Schaech and Lori Heuring) whose vacation "indiscretion" with a Euro-babe played by Zita Görög (a gorgeous girl who hosts Hungary's version of American Idol in real life) leads to big trouble, secret videos, back-mail, murder & the whole 9 yards. Nice twists and turns lead to some surprising outcomes - some may keep guessing (I did), some may figure it out, but still well-crafted entertainment.

What separates 8MM 2 from most of the drek in this genre (you see these flicks all the time on late night Skin-a-max and just outside the"adult" section of your neighborhood video store) is that it is skillfully made, has talented actors and is filmed in Budapest, the real life sex capital of the world. These touches elevate the film above most of the low-budget, T&A soap operas being cranked out by auteurs looking to make a quick buck by titillating the audience. The settings are authentic, explicit and even a bit sleazy (many scenes have acres of leggy Penthouse Pet-like Euros, walking around naked, having sex, etc...).

The original film 8 MM deals with the theme of why people commit horrendous acts of violence, as it deals with an 8MM film that contains a real murder. These films have been dubbed snuff films. Director Alejandro Amenábar even makes a better story of his terrific thriller called Thesis (1996) that portrays a female college student studying violence in media who also comes across a snuff film. Thus, when a title comes out with the name 8MM 2, the audience will make the logical deduction that it will also deal with a theme of why people commit vile murderous acts on film. In addition, to set the film in east Europe enhances this notion of brutal violence, as many films and news updates contain dreadful crimes in Eastern Europe that have links with organized crime. Thus, the implications of another tense and suspenseful cinematic event is set to bring viewers down the horror lane.

However, it would be complete miscalculation by the audience to make the inference that the sequel would follow the same theme. Here in 8MM 2, which does not even have any of the same actors, director, or theme, merely applies the title of a successful film in order to attract viewers. The film tries to evoke a similar atmosphere of depravity and immorality among the upper class, as Joel Schumacher's 8MM. It succeeds to some extent, but does not have the same grim and dark touch.

8MM 2 opens with a shot of a courtroom where a number of people are talking while the sound of a passionately active couple sexually pleasure one another. Here the story advertises the film's path, as David (Johnathon Schaech) tells his fiancé, Tish (Lori Heuring), about a sexual fantasy of his.

This movie has many twists and turns, quite a bit of graphic sex, it takes place in Budapest, which has an international reputation for all sorts of adult pleasures. But there's more to this than just a bunch of different sex scenes, there is a genuine thriller of a story and an ending that makes you say, "Now that was good flick."

8 MM 2's biggest flaw is its title. I've heard that it was originally released as "The Velvet Side of Hell". The latter title would have done the film justice by correctly setting the audience's expectations. 8 MM 2 is a guilty pleasure that's the equivalent of making dinner out of a Chunky bar dipped in a jar of Skippy. This film is simply a competently filmed erotic romp with sexy leads and interesting scenery. Johnathon Schaech and Lori Heuring are gorgeous but not plastic...or silicon (remember this as you watch the film, ha ha). The erotic content is lavishly filmed and very sleazy but not cheesy.

In a miscalculated attempt to leverage a tie-in to 8 MM, the producers / distributors / studio reached the wrong audience and the scheme backfired. And "wrong audience" doesn't just mean the wrong individual viewers. It also applies to the cinematic appetite of the viewer at the time that she's considering a film. For instance, I very much enjoyed the original 8 MM. It was a well written, well made, well acted, relevant film. And surprise, I also very much enjoyed 8 MM 2. This "sequel" is fun and pretty good for what it is. When I first popped it in, thinking that it was a true sequel, I was put off, but also titillated. So I put 8 MM 2 aside, watched a more serious film and then enjoyed 8 MM 2 when I was in a lighter, more...um...adventurous...mood.

8 MM 2 has an attractive professional cast, expensive sets, competent camera work, good lighting and compelling scenery. The plot is as trivially functional as a plot should be in a film subtitled "Unrated and Exposed". (At some points, the film seems to be poking fun at itself and even if it's not, you sure can.) So just mentally edit the title to "The Velvet Side of Hell" before you decide whether or not such a film will satisfy your current cinematic appetite.
