Review:

 

Several attractive porn stars have been invited to join the cast of what is sure to be an event picture in the porn industry. The mysterious director is in disguise, but nobody seems to mind. As the scenes play out (both on the set and off) there is a sense of optimism in the air. The actors are enthusiastic (two may actually be falling in love) and the goofy crew members are pleased with their work. There is one problem: a masked killer is on set and steadily killing off the talent.

 

Porn Shoot Massacre is a title that is almost critic-proof. Nobody watching this should be expecting Kubrick. Terrible actors wander around cheap sets under the direction of a man wearing the worst disguise in years. The film is more focused on character than plot, which is a nice change of pace. The script may not be the strongest, but the writing attempts to bring some depth.

 

The film is strongest when it mocks the ultra low budget world that has spawned it. There is ample nudity, as there should be with this title, and the ladies seem quite comfortable in the silly scenarios that even include a little person in a king-sized three-way. The actresses are quite capable of acting sexy or bitchy, but most other emotions (like fear) seem foreign. There are a few twists along the way as to who will be the Final Girl (a cheat prevents a fair guess). The identity of the killer, however, is never really a concern.

 

It is difficult to say whether director Timbrook is paying homage to the shittiness that runs rampant through both porn and low budget horror or if he is simply making the same mistakes. The film manages to constantly offer more breasts as a distraction, but there is a gnawing vibe of phoney-baloney highjinks lurking behind the camera. Again, the title sets the stage, and this film delivers with all the elements you would hope for, but leaves a void where satisfaction should be the result.

 

Video, audio and special features will not be graded, as this is a screener.

Conclusion:

 

The love of blood and boobs has brought a somewhat entertaining title to the world of micro-budget cinema. The film was shot in a week and the indie spirit is on screen, but the actual crew should be more talented than the buffoons on screen. Director Corbin Timbrook (Blood Ranch) has mixed two of my favorite genres (horror and porn) and included the right mixture of key elements (blood and boobs) to make a tasty treat for most audiences.

 

As a personal aside my favorite crew member can be found in the scene where the Final Girl makes her triumphant escape. As she walks down the street, the crew member can be spotted crouching behind a light stand next to a hedgerow.
