In entirely disturbing and totally unnecessary news, it would seem that someone has decided to make a sequel to the HORRENDOUSLY bad (but horribly fun) schlock film Showgirls (which was directed by Paul Verhoeven and stars Saved by the Bell‘s Elizabeth Berkley) which apparently bears no resemblance at all to the original film. A trailer for Showgirls 2 has made its way to the Internets … here are a few screencaps and some deets about this sequel film:
When we reported last fall that unknown filmmaker Marc Vorlander had developed a sequel, and managed to raise $25 million to shoot a sequel to Paul Verhoeven’s infamously terrible “Showgirls,” we frankly didn’t believe it. Well, he may not have got the $25 million (it looks more like $25 and shot on a cellphone), but Vorlander now has a trailer for “Showgirls 2″ and it sort of has to be seen to be believed. Warning, it’s NSFW and incredibly bad, but we’ll probably see it, if for anything out of gross curiosity. At its best moments it looks like one of those “Emmanuelle” movies, as if it were shot by David Lynch, but then by the end the actors start talking and it quickly spirals into a D-level atrocity. Vorlander said he wanted Rena Riffel from the original to star, but by the looks of it, she’s not in this. The plot, which can easily be gleaned from the trailer, is (roughly translated) about “a stripper who died from a dose of contaminated cocaine. Her brother comes to Frankfurt to find the person responsible and get revenge.” We’re just still trying to figure out what that dumbbell scene was about, and what the skulls were for and frankly what the hell was going on for most of this.
I never would’ve dreamed that it was possible to make a WORSE film than Showgirls but this just goes to show you how terribly wrong I was. Lord, this looks bad. Check out the pretty NSFW uncensored trailer after the jump and judge for yourselves …
I honestly have no words. I suppose we can only hope and pray that this film never makes it to theaters … I mean, really, hasn’t the film industry suffered enough? What do y’all think of this trailer? Does Showgirls 2 look like a film that YOU would pay good money to see?
