Editorial Reviews

The term "snuff film" first originated in the early 1970’s. Also known as "white heat" and "the real thing." In 1975, the FBI investigated rumors of snuff in America. For the past 30 years, thousands of people have claimed that they’ve seen an actual snuff film. To this day it remains an "urban legend." Amateur Porn Star Killer follows a Ted Bundy-like serial killer, Brandon, and his next victim, Stacy, who is about to become an unwilling participant in Brandon's movie.

I would rate this movie as one of the worst that I have ever seen.
Amazon Customer
As for the second part, the fact that Brandon is so hard to believe in this movie makes it kind of a moot point, no matter how good Stacey may be.
Robert Beveridge
The lack of any real dramatic narrative or characterisation makes it a completely unabsorbing experience.

What can I say about this film but it was differnt than anything I ever seen. If your looking for that realistic film with that home movie feel this is it. Its not your typical film its more like a snuff film or what one would be. Don't expect over top film making here but a creepy realistic type home video. Its the kind of movie that makes you feel kind of bad for watcing it. Its not very long and it really has one direction and thats the torure and death of this girl. If your looking for something shocking and diffrent this is it. It has some other very strange shorts on this DVD that might peek your interest also. I have to say this one needs to be seen at least once.

Amateur Porn Star Killer is a sorry excuse for a film.

Don't be fooled by the professional artwork or the lame exploitation title, intended to attract the emotionally subnormal and cash in on a particular subgenre of Horror cinema; a title that makes no sense and certainly doesn't really say anything about the film itself. Don't be fooled by the cheesy film-look filters applied over poorly lit and staged serial killer footage - supposedly deliberately shot in a headache inducing `amateur camcorder user' style - although why anyone would go to the trouble of documenting their crimes in such a poor fashion and then trying to fake it as film I'll never know! `Experimental' (or inept - you decide....) sound and muddy dialogue and atrocious acting / staging. If you buy this you're in for a tedious viewing experience.

The plot - if you can call it that - is simple. It's about a wannabe Ted Bundy armed with a camera, called Brandon (Shane Ryan), who brings an underage girl, named Stacey (Michiko Jimenez), back to his apartment, bores her with his shoddy camera antics, before having sex with her and beating her to death. Most of the action is deliberately poorly framed or happens off camera. It is technically without inspiration and is lacking in any redeeming quality.

Fans of this Guinea Pig style snuff-esque footage may get a kick out of it, but I have seen it done much better. This is completely uninspiring. The footage of sex acts could be real but who cares. It is pretty uninspiring stuff. The lack of any real dramatic narrative or characterisation makes it a completely unabsorbing experience. Dredging footage up of one girl to superimpose over another is a thinly veiled technique to try and liven up this turkey.

Amateur Porn Star Killer (Shane Ryan, 2007)

The best thing about Amateur Porn Star Killer is watching its director and "star", Shane Ryan, absolutely destroying his career. Not that you can call guest appearances on such deathless TV shows as That's So Raven (possibly the worst show on television), Arrested Development, and The O.C. a "career". But it is what it is. Or was, until Amateur Porn Star Killer, made on an estimated budget (according to IMDB) of forty-five dollars(!) and seemingly successful enough that Ryan has helmed three(!) sequels in the intervening two years. Why is this? I have no idea.

Plot: a guy (Ryan) picks up a girl (Ryan regular Michiko Jimenez) and takes her back to his hotel room. This occurs after some unrelated scenes and a couple of title cards about snuff films, so you can guess that the outcome of this tete-a-tete will not be a happy one. What you don't expect is how intensely, incredibly, awe-inspiringly boring this supposed snuff film is going to be. The opening scenes and the description give us the idea that we're dealing with a serial killer, but this isn't a slasher film; this is, in real time, everything that happens between Brandon (the killer) and Stacey (the victim). Given two actors capable of handling the material, which is actually delivered in what might have been a surprisingly effective script (co-written by Ryan and Jimenez), this would have been riveting stuff. Two-person movies, done right, are wonderful--Closetland, My Dinner with Andre, etc. This is not one of them. Jimenez does have some real potential, as she manages to infuse Stacey with a healthy dose of nervousness. We always get a sense that Stacey is real.

Format: DVD
It took roughly three hours to shoot and has one of the lowest budgets ever of any film that's been nationally distributed. But neither stops underground filmmaker Shane Ryan's "Amateur Porn Star Killer" from being one of the most disturbing and thought provoking films you will see on violence, sex and nudity.

Shot on miniDV for $45, "Amateur Porn Star Killer" is the story of a girl being preyed upon by a vicious predator. Playing on the illusion what you are watching is a real snuff film, the audience follows along as Brandon (played by Ryan) takes Stacy (Michiko Jimenez) to a hotel and proceeds to victimize her emotionally, physically and sexually, before ending her life.

Love it or hate it, you can't deny the power of Ryan's film. When PollyStaffle.com reviewed it in June 2006, it was called "mesmerizing and terrifying" and "downright painful to watch." It was also noted that the film is "so close to being a masterpiece that even though it repulses me I have to praise it." It later went on to win a Polished Apple award in the Second Annual Pollies for best use of sex/nudity because of the film's impact.
