Yes, they actually made a sequel to the Nicholas Cage disappointment 8MM.

Well, sort of. Originally titled The Velvet Side of Hell, Sony saw a chance to make some extra bucks and ran with it by retitling the movie for its direct-to-video release. With two unknowns, Jonathon Schaech and Lori Heuring, in the lead roles, this was probably the best decision.

I knew this wasn’t an actual sequel to 8MM going in, so I didn’t allow myself to be offended or any such nonsense about the lack of actual relevance to the first film. In the end, it wouldn’t matter if this were called 8MM 2, The Velvet Side of Hell, or Body Chemistry V; this is still a really awful movie.

Tish Harrington (Heuring), daughter of a U.S. Ambassador who may just get a Supreme Court nomination, and the Ambassador’s legal counsel David Huxley (Schaech), are engaged to be married. Despite the Ambassador’s disproving of David, their relationship is strong. The two take off to the outskirts of Hungary for a brief vacation, where they wet their sexual pallets by engaging in a threesome with a beautiful female. This was intended as a gift of sorts to David from Tish, but it turns into a curse when she receives a letter containing nothing but a few photos of the three engaged in the act. Since this could destroy not just their lives but also the career of Tish’s father, the two are adamant about retrieving the incriminating evidence. In hopes of avoiding blackmail, the two search through Budapest’s sex industry for the young female, and soon find themselves knee-deep in sex, murder, and non-existent intrigue.

There’s a pretty good reason why director J.S. Cardone’s only movie to hit theaters in the past ten years or so has been the utterly forgettable The Forsaken. He’s just not that good. The only thing he shows himself to be capable of doing is filling the screen with naked Hungarian models. And while that’s not a bad thing, the fact that the story is eighteen sorts of bland and feels like it lasts an hour longer than it actually does just kills it dead.

It might actually beat out Witch’s Sabbath when it comes to sheer number of breasts on display, but most of the ones in 8MM 2 are in the background and nothing more.
DVD: After yearning for someone to just put a bullet through my head during the final half of the movie, I really wasn’t into watching a forty-eight minute behind-the-scenes featurette. I tried to sit through it, but it was just too much for me to handle.
