Somebody is bumping off all the strippers in town, so nosey reporter Nancy Weston (Amy Farrell) hires supersleuth Abe Gentry (Frank Kress) to investigate. Besides bickering with Nancy, bickering with strip club waitress Marlene (Hedda Lubin), stumbling from murder to murder (each more gruesome than the last), and making a fool of the investigating cop (Russ Badger), Gentry soon enough comes up with quite a number of suspects, including the wannabe boyfriend of one of the strippers, a Vietnam vet who likes to smash fruit, and women's lib. However, Gentry totally lacks evidence ... so he persuades a local stripclub owner (Henny Youngman) to run an amateur strip contest, then tricks Nancy into participating and sees to it that she wins - and really, that night, Nancy is attacked by the killer, who turns out to be none other than bitchy waitress Marlene, a former star stripper who since a fire couldn't strip anymore and now bears a grudge against all strippers that even drives her to murder. Naturally, Gentry can interfere before Marlene can do anything to Nancy, and upon escaping, Marlene falls out of a second floor window right in front of a truck and is squashed.

And Gentry ?

In the end he gets the girl - Nancy -, whether he likes it or not ...

 

Of course, the whole story of The Gore Gore Girls is merely a device to show some gore and nudity (strictly topless), but that doesn't keep Herschell Gordon Lewis from making the narrative sequences as funny (in a tongue-in-cheek-way) as humanly possible: His supersleuth character is something of a poor man's Jason King,  the girl reporter is almost ridiculously naive, and the other characters are basically caricatures. Add to that the waitress Marlene, who wears a different outfit and wig in almost every shot (even consecutive shots), a guy smashing fruit at a bar, and murderscenes that are so grotesquely gruesome (example: a girl gets her faceburned in a bowl of boiling French fries) you cannot take them seriously anymore and you have one hell of a black comedy, and maybe Herschell Gordon Lewis' best, but surely his funniest film.

Definitely recommended.

 

After The Gore Gore Girls, Herschell Gordon Lewis quit the film business and did not make another feature film for 29 years, until Blood Feast 2.
