Editorial Reviews

Four friends set out on an everyday errand and end up in a fight for their lives when they discover the body of a dead hooker in their trunk. Lead by sexy, impulsive Badass, her distant twin sister Geek, their bible-thumping friend Goody Two Shoes, and chaotic rock star pal Junkie, the group must put aside their differences to dispose of the body as they face off against persistent police, a sleazy motel manager, chainsaw-wielding triads, and a brutal serial killer. All the while they are followed by the mysterious Cowboy Pimp who wants to claim the corpse for his own. Identical twin sisters Jen and Sylvia Soska wrote, directed and produced this explosive ride filled with gun fights, extreme violence, blood, guts, gore, and goats.

First caught this at the 2010 Drunken Zombie Film Festival, and was blown away by how much friggin' fun this movie is.

Dead Hooker In A Trunk is a modern spin on the exploitation film and will be instantly recognizable to people who want their movies hard, fast, and mean -- with a fistful of black comedy thrown in for good measure. Jen and Sylvia Soska clearly enjoyed the heck out of themselves while putting together this crazy, no-punches-pulled piece of independent cinema, and it shows.

Not a lot of plot involved -- it's a bada**, geek, addict, and goody two-shoes trying to dispose of a dead hooker found in the bada**'s trunk... the origin of said hooker, unknown. On the way, eyes will be knocked out, arms will be yanked off, and even being dragged by a horse won't stop this dysfunctional gang from getting rid of the hooker... and exacting bloody revenge on those who screw with them in the process!

Amoral, vicious, and firmly tongue-in-cheek, Dead Hooker In Trunk isn't for fans of slickly-crafted, PG-13 Hollywood fare... this is a dirty little film that'll make you sit up and say, "OH S#@T!" throughout. It's a delightful throwback to the days when you could make a straightforwardly, unapologetically sleazy movie brimming with personality that exists solely to entertain its audience and raise a lot of eyebrows along the way.

Jen and Sylvia did good -- HIGHLY recommended!

5.0 out of 5 stars Twisted Twins Kick Ass April 20, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video
Jen and Sylvia Soska kick ass with their feature film debut. Working with a tiny budget but an excess of ingenuity and wicked inspiration, they deliver a fun and twisted ride. It's great to see women who can work in the horror genre without flinching. Raw, uneven, but never dull. Look for their new film American Mary coming out in 2012.

4.0 out of 5 stars Double trouble September 26, 2011
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I just finished watching "Dead Hooker in a Trunk" by and starring the Soska twins. Jen and Sylvia play the leads in one seriously messed up grindhouse-y indie horror film (their first). Originally planned to star four female leads, someone apparently dropped out and one of the characters was re-written days before shooting began to be a male.

So while this would have been a different film if it starred and entirely female cast, I have to say the inclusion of C.J. Wallis as "Goody Two Shoes" was a stroke of luck. Although he was busy co-starring in the film, as noted on IMDB he also "...edited, shot, sound tracked, marketed, and did all post on the film." He is absolutely hilarious in this film and show a key sense of comedic timing.

As for the Soska twins...what can I say. Smart, sexy, dark and a little disturbing...well a lot disturbing. At one point, I realized that they might be just playing themselves (seemed so natural as loopy twins).

So how was the movie? For an indie first time horror film I have to say hats off to these ladies. They really took on an ambitious amount of locations, story, and action for a first film. I wasn't sure what the film would look like or feel like, but having seen it would argue it's very much a "grindhouse" film as much as "horror."

Is there blood? Guts? Violence? Absolutely. The twins handle ever increasing horror, violence, confusion and surreal accidents with passion and strength. While one sister ("Geek" played by Jen) is a bit of a wallflower, it's soon apparent that she's not just a brainy beauty but able to step into the shadows. Her sister ("Badass" played by Sylvia) is a loose cannon dealing rage, violence and death blows without hesitation.

5.0 out of 5 stars OMGWTF February 13, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
It's been a long time since a movie was so interesting that I screamed at it and waved my around while trying to watch it.

It's got violence. It's a comedy. It's the bizarreness that gets me though. Things happen, and I don't know what happened, or why. But someone probably lost an eye, or an arm, or a kidney. Or maybe they've been lassoed by a man on a horse. Or the dead hooker sits up suddenly and is beaten to death again.

5.0 out of 5 stars These Two Are Going Places............. February 12, 2012
Format:Amazon Instant Video|Verified Purchase
I loved this film, I just loved it! Quirky, offbeat, different, unpredictable, and at times, hilarious, it just keeps coming from directions you would never expect. The Soska Twins, a.k.a. "The Twisted Twins", Jen and Sylvia Soska are two of the sharpest, most inventive and creative minds to come along in awhile, and I think that this is just the beginning for these two in writing, producing, directing, and performing in some great works to come. Their next film, "American Mary" is on its way this year, and I for one, will be watching out for it. The rest of the cast in this is excellent as well. I love the Soska Twins twisted minds! A classic!

Dead Hooker in a Trunk is the debut film from Jen and Sylvia Soska, the Twisted Twins. The twins wrote, directed, and star as Badass and Geek. After a night of partying, the sisters, along with Badass' friend, the aptly named Junkie, and Geek's friend, the uptight Goody Two Shoes, find the corpse of a hooker in the trunk of Badass' car. Not sure if she was somehow involved in the death of the hooker, Badass wants to bury the body and forget about it, despite Geek's objections. Their attempts to get rid of the body are thwarted by cops, drug gangs, a pimp on horseback, and a serial killer. Throw in a heap of cartoonish violence and dark humor and a cameo from the original El Mariachi, Carlos Gallardo, as God and you have yourself one awesome, enjoyable movie. If that sounds like something up your alley, dig in. Jen and Sylvia were able to do a lot with a limited budget so my hat's off to them. I am looking forward to their next movie, American Mary, starring the talented and beautiful Katharine Isabelle from the Ginger Snaps series as well as whatever else comes out of their twisted minds.
