Amateur Porn Star Killer Star Jailed

Michiko Jimenez, who played the innocent 13-year-old character who is humiliated, raped, and beaten to death in the mock snuff film “Amateur Porn Star Killer”, is serving time in jail once again.

The actress, now 25, is known to have a severe drug problem and has been in and out of rehab consistently for years, but sources say this doesn’t look to be the reason this time for serving a lengthy time behind bars. Filmmaker Shane Ryan cast the then 19-year-old Jimenez to play the 13-year-old lead in his film because she actually appeared to look and act very young. The film, which was made for absolutely nothing, turned into a trilogy that went on to become a major cult hit in the independent film community. Ryan frequently works with the same actors though Jimenez and him never worked on anything together again (one film credited on IMDB with Jimenez and Ryan as a 2009 project actually is credited on Ryan’s website as being shot way back in 2003).

Jimenez was both praised and criticized for her performance in “Amateur Porn Star Killer” as was the film and its  director. The movie is described as…In the style of a true snuff film, this “intensely fierce” horror expedition illustrates the capture, rape, and murder of a young girl, as soon through the killer’s POV. “Picture Ted Bundy with a camera, and you get a pretty good idea of what you’re going to see (Film Threat).” “Both mesmerizing and terrifying” Amateur Porn Star Killer is “a malevolent classic” not to be missed. Fans of 8MM, Hard Candy, L.I.E., August Underground, The Brown Bunny, Murder-Set-Pieces, The Blair Witch, Peeping Tom, Vacancy and Irreversible won’t want to miss this “terribly disturbing” cinematic event.
