For those that don’t know Tom Dong was a performer who was slain trying to protect coworkers from being attacked by a recently fired Steve Driver. Driver would end his life shortly after running from the law.
This just seems like the most soulless possible thing that could be done in this situation.
Robert Hill Releasing has released producer/director Mike Ramone’s ”Porno Samurai Killer,” a comp featuring the greatest scenes of murder/suicide suspect Steve Driver and his alleged victim, Tom Dong.
Police say Driver, 34, snapped last month and used a prop samurai-type sword to kill his friend and fellow porn performer Dong and slash two others.
A few days later, Driver, with sword in hand, leapt to his death from a cliff in the San Fernando Valley – aka Porn Valley – as police closed in on him.
”This movie is in honor of Steve Driver and Tom Dong (let them rest in peace) for their dedication and hard work for the adult business,” Robert Hill owner Lynton said. ”There is no business without all the actors and actresses.”
Honoring him? Have they seen their own box cover? “He Murdered Him!” is the focal point of not only the terrible cover but the entire morbid movie. I would hate to think that anyone that could work with someone, live around someone and even write memorials for them could be involved in capitalizing on their death is such a morose fashion.
I don’t know what’s worst the badly photo-shopped sword or the ghastly taunting about the death of a man that died trying to rescue his friends? Perhaps its the honoring of the killer a lot more so than his innocent victim? In any case it’s disgusting.
