DVD review: Porkchop II Rise of the Rind (2011)
When young Simon Robertson (Sam Qualiana) moves with his family to a new town, he thinks the biggest peril will be the local bullies. Unfortunately, Simon's friend Meg (Angela Pritchett) informs him that this town has a much darker secret: a body count stretching into the hundreds - all the handiwork of Porkchop, a deranged madman with a pig mask. When the killer resurfaces, Simon and Meg will experience the most terrifying night of their soon-to-be short lives. Porkchop II Rise of the Rind is written and directed by Eamon Hardiman. The acting is intentionally bad, at least I hope that´s the case. The camerawork and editing is decent in this micro-budget feature. After a strong start the flick loses some of its momentum but it picks up the pace again after awhile. The biggest wtf moments in Porkchop II Rise of the Rind are when two of the main characters burst into song. And it doesn´t happen once, it happens twice... There is some gory scenes, practical make-up fx but some of the kills occur off screen. There is plenty of topless nudity in this, in fact the first nudity occurs within 2 minutes and it´s girl on girl action. Now some of you might think "wow" but sadly there ain´t much of a wow-factor in it.. It´s badly shot and features two pretty unattractive actresses.
Porkchop II Rise of the Rind is also known as Porkchops.
This review is based upon the region all (Region 0) DVD release from Independent Entertainment.
Rating: 1½ out of 7. Porkchop II: Rise Of The Rind is a better movie than the first one, better pacing, better plot, more kills, more T & A and more gore. If you liked the first Pork Chop then you should enjoy this one
