       Way back in 2015 I reviewed Death-Scort Service which was a collaborative effort Sean Donohue of Gateblade Films and Chris Woods of The Sleaze Box.  The film would go on to be my favorite horror flick of that year and still holds strong as one of my favorite modern slashers.  The film was equal parts sleaze and gore.  Fans of gore and slashers from the late 70s and early 80s need to see that film.  We fast forward to late 2016 or early 2017 when director Sean Donohue announced a follow up to his smash indie hit.  My mind raced with the possibilities.  Fans loved the gore and nudity so I could only imagine how Donohue would approach a sequel.  After extensive crowd funding and production the film is finally finished.  Sean and Chris were kind enough to send a review copy my way to check out.  Thank you both for allowing Horror Society and myself the opportunity to see the film!
     The film picks up sometime after the events of the first film.  The lone survivor, Michelle (Adams), is recalling the events of that dreadful day to someone on the phone when she is attacked and brutally murdered.  We then move on to three other working who are working the streets hard in order to save up to buy a home for themselves.  However, two of them are reluctant to do so because they don't want to be in the business much longer.  When other working girls around town turn up dead they are instructed to be on the looking for someone stalking and killing prostitutes but what they don't know is that the killer is closing to home than they expected.
     Director Sean Donohue and Chris Woods are like modern day Jess Franco's mixed with Roger Corman.  They take stories with no budgets and turn them into sleazy masterpieces.  Death-Scort Service set the bar pretty high in regards to boobs and gore but Death-Scort Service Part 2 was able to surpass it.  The acting for this one is fun.  We see some indie horror vets and Gatorblade/Sleaze Box regulars like Krystal Pixie Adams, Bob Glazier, and Eight the Chosen One.  All are great and really do an amazing job with their characters.  With that being said, there was a few new faces that have a hard time finding their footing.  They are extremely charismatic but they are quick to show their inexperience.  The story for this one is a solid follow up to what was established in the first film but if you are paying attention you can see the killer's reveal coming.  It wasn't as subtle as they think and could easily be predicted. With that one flaw aside the film has exceptional pacing, plenty of sleazy and raunchy moments and follows the slasher clich├ęs.  Finally, this one is full of imaginative kills and amazing gore.  The kills use classic tricks and effects that are very effective.  Some of the kills fit with the theme of the film while others were there just to shower the viewer with gore.  There was on kill in particular that I was not fond of and it took a little away from the film.  Overall, Death-Scort Service Part 2: The Naked Dead is a fucked up movie for fucked up horror fans.  This is the sleaziest of the sleazy and made for those of you looking for gore.  I cannot recommend this film enough!
