A masked psychopath is loose on the streets -stalking, torturing, and ultimately murdering his victims, who all happen to be Strippers. As the horrific murders increase, a ditsy reporter hires a private investigator to help solve the mystery behind these grisly murders. Herschell Gordon Lewis' The Gore Gore Girls is an extremely low budget sleaze-fest that is a lot of fun due to its willingness to embrace the type of film it is. Using a self-aware, comical soundtrack the film understands what it is, completely embracing its low-budget, campy style. The acting and plot of the film are nominal, as they just kinda exist for the sole purpose of stringing the murders together in a sensible way. The film lives up to its name with some absurd murder sequences that are both extremely gory, yet very creative. To give one an example of what you can expect, the murders range from a simple throat slitting to one poor girl getting her face deep fried. Given all this, it's not surprising in the least that this film received the X rating upon its release. While the plot is almost inconsequential, a major reason why this film works lies in the performance of Frank Kress as the private detective. He is so charmingly sleazy in such a playful way that he brings a nuanced sense of tongue and cheek humor to the whole film. The Gore Gore Girls is close to a masterpiece of trashy, low-budget cinema - if that is something one enjoys, there is no reason to believe they won't find The Gore Gore Girls to be a ton of fun.
Love of all things cinema brought me here.
