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.

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. These two excite, frighten and subdue all who come in their way.
The plot is a bit light and confusing at times (essentially a serial killer stalking hookers and following the twins after said hooker ends up in the trunk of Badass's car), but overall it keeps moving at a frenetic pace and you don't often linger on any scene.
I guess I am a twisted, dark soul (see my book "Dark Bites") so much of the blood, violence and guts was very familiar to me and often made me laugh out loud. There were some genuine, "I didn't see it coming" moments that made me jump (batter up).
Is it perfect? No, but it's a really great, ambitious first step to the dark side. They wrote something and made it happen-that alone should be demand our support (in particular from those of us in the horror community). But you'll also enjoy some great music (a trifle loud over the dialogue at times), kick ass gals put in insane situations and a lot of gory/violence. I suspect and anticipate that with success, more time/budget/equipment they'll have ever increasing success making horror films we can all fall in love with.
I recommend you rent this movie and leave a review here and follow these ladies as I do on Twitter (@twisted_twins). Stay bloody!
The film attempted too hard to be a clever indie with a bunch of disjointed characters whereas they should have concentrated on just a few characters with better development to set up better dark comedy.
Guide: F-word. Sex. No nudity.
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.
