“Avalon – Episode 2″ from SHG-Media

Avalon – Episode 2 is now available at SHG-Media in both standard and high-definition formats.  This sequel to the original episode of Avalon features more action and much more peril.  Avalon faces a variety of foes in this episode, and is almost always at a disadvantage—a fact her enemies take advantage of on multiple occasions.  For those of you disappointed with the lack of action and/or peril in the original Avalon, I think this episode should provide more of what you’re looking for.  Fans of a victorious heroine, however, might be happier with episode 1 (although episode 2 is still entertaining with Avalon getting a couple of chances to display her superiority).

I don’t want to give away the plot for this episode, so I’ll just repeat what Rye has mentioned in some of the comments sections here.  The storyline revolves around Avalon having her powers taken away.  She encounters some thugs on her way home and gets beaten up by them.

She then has nightmares about the thugs and about her enemies in which she images receiving some more beatings.  Finally, Avalon faces off against Syren in a violent showdown (with Spawn watching on a nearby monitor).

Episode 2 of Avalon is definitely much darker than the previous episode, with our heroine constantly outmatched by her opponents.  There’s more peril, and even a brief scene in which Avalon is tied up, although she escapes before the bad guys arrive.  Most of the episode is full of action, a few Avalon wisecracks, and lots of Avalon getting her ass kicked by the villains.

As viewers of the original Avalon know, the production values are higher in the Avalon films than in most American-produced heroine videos.  The acting is better, and the overall quality is generally higher.  I especially like Amy Johnston as the title character.  She has the acting chops and physical ability to pull of the role very well.

The Avalon films seem to be aiming for a slightly more general audience, which is great for fans of Superheroine adventures, whereas viewers more interested in specific “fetish” aspects of these films might be disappointed since Avalon is so non-specific from a fetish point-of-view.  In other words, Avalon doesn’t focus exclusively on, say, heroine peril, or on a dominant heroine.  It has a little bit of both.  It’s a more mainstream take on heroine films, and I think it’s really entertaining.  Just know that you’re not going to see tons of peril nor an intense focus on a victorious heroine.  All in all, I enjoyed it and give a B+.

    I just checked out the second episode. I heard great things about Episode 1 even though I hadn’t purchased it, but Episode II seemed like a better pick and I was right. The peril, the action and the story were all very well done. The actress who plays Avalon is perfect in the role, switching back between sexy and sarcastic smart ass to helpless and powerless heroine at the drop of a hat. Spawn seems like a great villain and I wish we got to see more of him in action, but I guess that is what Part III will focus on. Can’t really think of any real ‘cons’ to this vid. it was very well done and worth the download time. Cudos to Rye and his return to the superheroine peril genre. If you’re reading this dude (Rye), I don’t suppose you could give us a quick clue as to what we might see in Episode III or any of your other upcoming projects?

    Great job rye ep. 2 was alot better than 1 and i thought ep 1 was really good. You cast the perfect girl in my opinion for a heroine movie, will she ever do punished heroine type movies? Or is she too goody for that? It wood be awesome to see her do one of those. Can u give us a status on episode 3? If it does happen? Like what stage in development is the movie in and a release date that would be great, Thanks Rye.

    I really liked episode 1, but episode 2 is even better. Amy Johnston carried the first episode. This time she is helped out with a far more developed story. She is absoulutely perfect for the role. I like the darker turn episode 2 has taken and I really hope episode 3 goes even further.

  7. Thanks guys,

    Episode III will be a while as thebattleforearth.com wants me to do other heroines first. You will likely see a WonderousGirl style heroine next followed up by a SuperiorGirl style heroine. (quite possibly the Supergirl vs Nuclearman parody I have been rambling about on MH’s board)

    I have also been told the Avalon DVD will be coming out soon which will include both episode I, II, outtakes, and some behind the scenes footage. The extra footage should have a ton of Amy Johnston in it and give you an idea of how Avalon came together. I also pushed for some blooper reels because those are just awesome. There were a few times that Amy didn’t know her own strength and broke props lol.

    When will the dvd be released and where can we purchase it?

    Sounds great! oh, and where can i find MH’s board?

  10. Avalon is played by actress and martial artist Amy Johnston. (Rye revealed her name in a comment in another post, so I hope I’m okay in revealing her name here :) )

  11. Searched Amy Johnston in Youtube, and came up with a few martial arts videos of hers. She looks good enough in those videos, but nothing compared to when she wears the Avalon costume. :-P
