OFFICIAL TRAILER NOW RELEASED
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!
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.
DONNA SLASH (BENJI)
KATHY CORPUS (BABY)
ELISSA DOWLING (NURSE GRAVES)
JP NOMI MALONE (LOVELY PSYCH WARD RESIDENT)
JULIE ANNE PHILPUTT (JUDGE FLOWERS)
ANASTASIA ELFMAN (CAKES)
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":
