The lowest-stakes sequel in film history
27 May 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Submit to Me Now is the only official sequel that Richard Kern has made, and being that this particular short has very little to live up to in terms of continuing or fleshing out a story, it's honestly a low-stakes sequel all the more. Much like its predecessor, it's a parade of images showing sadomasochistic tendencies, self-mutilation, male and female genitalia, and more raunchy images, all presented with blaring music from Kern's favorite band Sonic Youth.

When it comes to a plot less Kern film, we come for the visuals and stay for the outright zaniness, and that's exactly what Submit to Me Now provides. It's a wild ride through the lunacy of 1980's punk, showing Kern favorites like Lung Leg and the gorgeous Lydia Lunch how we love to see them - scantily clad and bloodsoaked. It's a fun romp that works off of its predecessor thanks to its continued use of hardcore imagery and dizzying visuals, all of which work even for the questionably long runtime of eighteen minutes.

Starring: Lydia Lunch, Lung Leg, Amy Turner, and Tom Turner. Directed by: Richard Kern.
