After releasing the original 'Torture Fetish' which sometimes came paired up with his other short 'Dead Baby Mutilation' Swiss director Juval Marlon has returned to wreak havoc with his sequel 'Torture Fetish 2'. The two cretins from the first short are back but this time a female accomplice wants in on the killing. The two hooded male killers have a disagreement about whether or not the woman should join them. This argument doesn't end well for one of the killers.

We are then thrown into the torturing and killing action as the new team of the young woman and man dispatch a number of different victims. One man is tied to a chair and forced to eat feces before being stabbed to death, another is drowned and a bound and gagged woman is fondled. Not even animals are safe as a very fake looking dog is set on fire.

The original Torture Fetish is considered somewhat of an underground cult item but this sequel definitely lives up to it and is a great continuation. Torture Fetish 2 is an entry into the faux first person snuff style films which were very common when films like August Underground came about. The viewer gets a close and personal view into the murderous events taking place as if they are plunged into the scenario themselves.

Clocking in just over 16 minutes Juval Marlons sequel is a solid underground faux snuff entry with some harrowing footage of deplorable humans getting off on torture and killing. Adding a woman in the mix is a nice touch and definitely an angle which can be further explored if a third entry is ever made. I always enjoy when Marlon has a new piece of work available and it's cool to see some underground material coming out of Switzerland. I hope he keeps making his films and exploring more dark subject matter.

My rating: 3 out of 5
