A totally outrageous 70s style exploitation
horror film, with a modern twist that just
doesn't hold back.
Crystal is the lead dancer in her own Burlesque
show, but she has other plans for her troupe on
this tour. While visiting Crystal's brother, the
Burlesque girls start to be picked off one by one,
and its anyone's guess who will survive.
Dark, gritty, violent, mixed with tongue in
cheek comedy, this horror film flaunts
bizarre uneven mix of film making styles
and harks back to the simpler days of the
1970s drive-in and second bill indie movies.
Contains violence, gore, language,
sexual content and nudity.

This movie is homage to 1970s/1980s exploitation horror films, utilizing all of the classic staples of the genre yet providing some modern twists. The plot is that a bunch of girls whom are burlesque dancers decide to take a couple days off at one of the dancer's home to relax and practice for their next show. It isn't long before these girls start meeting their demise. There is a little more to it, not much but I believe the less said the better.
This film is very low budget and in no way shape or form is going to win any major awards. In contrast, I found it to be gritty with a tongue in cheek vibe that is very honest to the source material, which is to exploitation horror. The film makers even distressed the footage and provided "cigarette burns" to the movie it give it an aged effect. The acting was believable yet amateurish; I found this to give the movie charm. The special effects were decent and the gory was plentiful. Even the dialogue seems rather candid.
I must stress that there is a great deal of female nudity and sexual content. This didn't bother me; it really reinforced the old horror films of yesteryear. However, the level of nudity and sexuality was very close to soft core pornography. Notwithstanding, in many aspects the sexual content is also a ruse for a plot device. This is just a friendly warning to anyone who is turned off by gratuitous female nudity.
Overall, I really loved this movie and I took it at face value, a sleazy little horror flick that recaptures the nostalgia of horror films 30 to 40 years ago. It is very entertaining and the production company really seems to know what they were doing given what they had to work with. I'd like to see more recent movies that have this same vibe. As for the DVD-R, it worked fine having clear audio and picture. There is no special features or subtitles just the flick. This movie gave me hope for the future of independent horror movies.
