Movie Info

An extortionist threatens to derail the career of a prominent politician by revealing visual proof of his lurid sex life in this sequel to Joel Schumacher's disturbing 1999 hit. In the world of politics David Huxley (Johnathon Schaech) is on the move. A crafty political visionary with lofty goals and an eye towards the future, Huxley's only Achilles heel is the sexual obsession that drives him into some of the city's seediest sex clubs. An unnamed extortionist has captured Huxley and his fiancée Tish (Lori Heuring) in a kinky three-way with an attractive young model (Zita Görög), and the high price he puts on the photographic proof send his target reeling. When the blackmail attempt takes a dark turn and Huxley is kidnapped, his fiancée must come up with $5 million in ransom or risk losing both her future husband, and her life as well.

Audience Reviews for 8MM 2

Having absolutely nothing to do with the original film, 8MM 2 is a dark sexual thriller that's formulaic and uninspired. The story follows an ambitious politician and his fiancee who are being blackmailed with a sex tape that was secretly made of them, so to protect their future they delve into the underworld of the pornography industry in order to recover the tape and find the blackmailers. It's a ridiculous plot that couldn't be less interesting, and the acting is pretty mundane. However, the visual style of the film is impressive and carries an air of mystery and suspense. Though the stylized directing adds a lot of intrigue, 8MM 2 is a predictable and absurd piece of trite.

The acting is horrible, the plot is mind numbingly unoriginal and extremely predictable, but really the worst offense is the idea that this is a sequel to 8mm. No suspense, very very slow moving. And to top it off it's not only another of those fake sequals, it was never intended to be a fake sequal. While it was being made it was called The Velvet Side of Hell. Awesome title. But Sony came in and said nope we'll call this 8mm 2 instead. So fuck this movie.But about ever 5 minutes there are tits. Seriously.

This thriller sequel is getting more better than the original about the couples in Hungary risking their life on a blackmail, kidnap and murder.
