This is a slasher movie bared to the bones: A filmmaker (Bill Zebub)
lures young woman to his place with an ad saying something like
"scream queen wanted for film, no experience necessary" - and a
bunch of naive girls fall for it, wanting to have their face up there on
the screen, trusting their director no matter what - and when things start
to get ugly, it's far too late, as they are already tied up and at the
mercy of the director ... only, the director shows no mercy, stripping his
victims whether they agree to nudity or not, sometimes raping them
(Heather Taylor), torturing them with electroshocks (Debbie D) or just
humiliating them (Kerri Tayler), or simply putting their life on the line
actually (Sica). In the end though he murders all of his victims, just for
the sake of making a horror film for interested customers -
figuring everyone else, even the film lab, will mistake his real murders
for special effects.
Only one girl (Elena Kagan) fights back, figuring
she has nothing to lose and biting off his penis when he forces her to
give him a blowjob. But even that mishap can't keep our villain from
finishing his film, ending it with a scene involving a razorblade and his
last victims vagina ... ouch!
With some justification, you can
regard this movie as no more than a piece of worthless, even misogynistic
trash - but that's only half the truth, beneath the sex and violence, you
can also spot some commentary about the public's infatuation with
celebrity and the I-wanna-be-a-star-no-matter-what-syndrome, in a
world in which TV has tought us that to become famous, talent is not a
necessity as long as there's a camera around. Of course, to regard this
movie as a full-blown satire would be giving it too much credit, after
all, it's still a low budget genre movie first and foremostthat makes a
point of showing as much female breasts as humanly possible, but there's
no doubt more than one layer to this film ...
