KILL DOLLY KILL: DOLLY DEADLY 2 - PRODUCTION PROGRESS (UPDATE: TRAILER)

OFFICIAL TRAILER NOW RELEASED

dd22.jpg

It's been over a year since we first viewed Heidi Moore's grisly little coming of age thriller, Dolly Deadly, but its impact still remains. Benji's heart breaking tale was one juxtaposed against an at-times dazzling aesthetic, giving the film a mashup of emotion and the audience a deep look into the sub-conscience of a troubled child; a visual representation of internal turmoil ultimately bearing fruit in the most gruesome, violent of ways. Dolly Deadly 2 will continue where the first left off, chronicling the events of Benji's adult life - murderous rage intact - presented in musical fashion. Yep, that's right, Dolly Deadly 2 will be a rock-musical slasher film in the full spirit of Troma, and as a fan of musicals in any genre let alone my favorite, it goes without saying that - holy shit - I cannot wait!
 

BENJI is back! Now living as his alter-ego DOLLY DEADLY, he’s all grown up and ready to kill...AGAIN! Welcome back to the trailer park! Paradise Park that is, where hot rods and barbecue are the order of the day and punk rock music blasts all night...throw in a gang of murderous Drag Queens and a visit to the Psychiatric Ward and you’ll get a taste of the new horror-comedy, DOLLY DEADLY Part 2 from Director Heidi Moore!
— Tom Komisar (Writer for Dolly Deadly 2)

Currently half the film has been shot, with the rest slated for 2018 and the location moved from the bustling "Sin City" of Las Vegas to the quaint little town of Winamac, Indiana. Cast and crew pretty much locked, so let's run through some of the key players.

MUSIC TO KILL TO

What good is a horror musical without a solid score to fuel the narrative? Well, if the below sample is any indication of what we can expect from the completed product, then we are in for a real treat. My guess is that I'll be humming these Dolly Deadly tunes long after the credits have rolled. Check out "Welcome to Paradise Park":

HOW CAN I HELP?

While production is now fully underway, many aspects of the process can beneift greatly from budget increases. The Dolly Deadly 2  film is still open to monetary contributions on the partner hmmfilms.com website. If you're able, give what you can, and make this the best version of Dolly Deadly 2 that it can be. Here is the official word on the matter:

Wretched Productions and HM&M Films have both worked on several micro budget films and we believe that with our talents combined, we can accomplish great things with a small amount of money. We seek approx $10,000 to produce this movie; This amount will both allow us to create all the visuals we have in mind, and will be frugal enough to make back with sales.

What we already have in place: a talented in-house crew, our own equipment, and we have several actors standing by ready to get involved with whatever we have coming up. With those aspects of the film already covered, we can focus the funds we seek on the actual production.

Both production companies have completed several projects and are fully capable and completely driven to see this project to the end.
