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.
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.Read more ›
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!
