About 10 years ago, director Shane Ryan (who fortunately is certainly no stranger to this site) has left his mark on film history with his Amateur Porn Star Killer (officially released only in 2007). Now this film gained notoriety because it was just that, a guy persuading a girl to make a porn movie with him, then he kills her on camera - a very shocking film, because everything looked so real, felt so authentic. Unexpectedly, Ryan managed to top this with Amateur Porn Star Killer 2, probably thanks to a stronger chemistry between the protagonists (Ryan and co-star Kai Lanette actually became a couple several months after filming) and actual on-camera sex. Amateur Porn Star Killer 3 on the other hand was maybe the most accomplished as its main story is told in one continuous circa 60 minute take and is still brilliantly paced.

 

Now films like this trilogy cause all sorts of reactions, from utter disdain over their sleazy subject matter (a feeling even shared by veteran porn star William Margold) to utter praise for how far they managed to push the envelope regarding found footage films in general, and how far ahead of time they still are. And while some interviewees in this documentary just revel in the sickness of the Amateur Porn Star Killer movies , others do recognize the fine satire hidden behind the surface, having to do with out society's addiction to reality TV and everybody's 15 minutes of fame and everything. Oddly enough though, nobody sees the films as the perfect, almost Hitchcockian suspense pieces they are, stripped of all their nudity.

 

Interesting points are made though when the series is linked to Ryan's later, much more atmosphere driven movies Warning!!! Pedophile Released, its iteration The Girl Who Wasn't Missing, the hauntingly beautiful My Name is 'A' by anonymous, and The Owl in Echo Park, giving a comprehensive frame to the work of Shane Ryan as such, as well as his co-star in Albert Pyun's The Interrogation of Cheryl Cooper, Tommie Vegas, giving an account of what it's like working with Ryan in front of the camera (in another one-take film).

Really a rather comprehensive and fascinating film for fans of the filmmaker, but also for people just wanting to have a different perspective on "controversial" films.
