Editorial Reviews

For the first time ever, the entire Amateur Porn Star Killer trilogy is in one complete set! With short films, interviews, music videos and more. But that's not even the best part. Experience the APSK trilogy in 3D, causing it to look feel as if you made these faux snuff films yourself! Hailed by critics as "a masterpiece!" An "intensely fierce" "malevolent classic". It is a "terribly disturbing", "nasty", "haunting", "horrific", "bombastically explicit", "almost too realistic" "dark new wave experiment", and "the most uncompromising, repugnant and necessary film for all fans of sleaze and boundary pushing cinema."* When Amateur Porn Star Killer first hit the indie horror scene in 2007 it stirred up quite the debate and outrage. Even its theatrical debut caused the theater chain's own employees to vandalize and destroy the film's promotional materials after they deemed the film morally offensive, and both A-list Hollywood actors and actual porn stars demanded the movie be banned. Despite its controversy, the film became such a hit that a sequel followed in 2008, and another in 2009. Now you can own all 3 movies today!

When Shane Ryan released his first installment in this series, it was truly a unique take on the torture-porn genre, which I usually find too misogynistic to enjoy, let alone a turn on. But I have a feeling I'm not the target audience for these films, yet I enjoyed viewing them all... go figure.

The hand-held camera technique actually works in the context of these films, unlike almost every other attempt I've seen at utilizing them for a 'you-are-there' perspective POV.
It's insanely chilling at times, making you feel like you are right there riding shotgun in the car as the abductions take place and the violence ensues. It's fiendishly captivating.
Once you've been drawn into the film, it's impossible to look away, like an auto crash scene when you can't help but look for carnage, blood or bodies. It appeals to the darkest parts of our psyche.

The first one is very good, the second even better, but by the third flick Shane's run out of steam and there's nothing new, just a re-tread of the first two. The 3rd actually features a porn star, so you'd think it would add something, but no such luck (read my review for details).

At the price asked for the package of all three flicks, it's a no-brainer for the curious or casual viewer (though there's nothing casual about this stuff). Frightening, fascinating, compelling and off-putting all at the same time, it's a must-see for the 'Amateur' in us all.

The concept of this series of movie is the make believe that snuff movies exist. In reality, this movie was very convincingly filmed. The male star, getting frustrated and in some cases humiliated, kills his sexual partners in anger with believable violence. The concept of the movie and the adaptation is well done. Clearly, the movie is NOT 16MM as it's filmed with a handheld digital camera but they do throw in 16mm graininess etc, so in some ways, the continuity is a little lacking but aside from that aspect, it is a really good attempt to show the perverse and frightening attempts of a sick twisted mind to brutalize and kill his partners during and after sex. The film is very graphic in rare scenes showing full nudity and sexual acts. The lighting is specifically poor so as to not make this seem like a choreographed porn movie. Most is shot in zero or low light, with shaky camera angles to simulate the pretense that the camera person is this psychotic killer who's primary interest is to have forced sex. There's not an over abundance of violent acts per se but that doesn't overshadow the fact that he does kill his victims. In some cases, the lead up to the sex is very long winded so don't expect to be watching a porn movie as this does not fall into that category. Considering the time it takes on film to actually convince his victims to get undressed (always very slowly), the poor camera angles and poor lighting (all for effect), it's really more about the psychology of a killer.

The down side to the movie. THE 3D VERSION IS A COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME AND MONEY. I cannot stress enough how awful the 3D is. It's pitiful, pathetic and totally NOT 3D.

These films, especially the 1st, are minor masterpieces in this - maybe never-before-realized horror/torture/porn category. I mean, it's not an uplifting experience but these are carefully and artfully done. The first one is a minor masterpiece in hypnotic deviance. You won't leave any of these feeling good, but for what they are - top of the class. And now they finally put it all together in one amazing package - RUINED BY OLD SCHOOL 3D THAT DOES NOT WORK IN ANY WAY except to muddy the image completely and make this whole thing useless. There is not even an option to turn OFF the 3D. What a waste. Truly. Just buy the originals.
