I attended a screening of the new titsploitation epic, BITCH SLAP at the Nuart theatre in Santa Monica this last Saturday evening and the event was almost as huge as the racks on the three buxom young starlets that are featured in the film! If you don’t know what BITCH SLAP is yet, check out this trailer…
BITCH SLAP is a crazy patchwork of exploitation films from the 50′s, 60′s, 70′s and 80′s, with an emphasis on “girls behaving badly” movies like FASTER PUSSYCAT KILL KILL and CAGED HEAT. The majority of the film was shot in front of a green screen and that gives it a nice cartoonish look throughout.
The story involves three hot babes named Camero (AMERICA OLIVO), Hel (ERIN CUMMINGS) and Trixie (JULIA VOTH), who are trying to stay alive after robbing a ruthless gangster named Pinky. To be honest, the plot in this thing doesn’t even matter, because this movie is all about big boobs, big explosions, hot lesbo action, water fights, massive gore and cool cars. There is an amazing chick fight that goes on forever and it was choreographed by KILL BILL’S own ZOE BELL, who also has a cameo in the movie as a streetfighter named Rawhide.
There are a lot of really colorful characters that populate the BITCH SLAP world, like the weird assassin duo of Hot Wire (a crazed meth head punk) and Kinki (a hot Japanese school girl with a razor yo-yo).
There are also a lot of great cameos in BITCH SLAP, that include KEVIN SORBO as Mr. Phoenix, LUCY LAWLESS and RENEE O’CONNOR as the lesbian nun team of Mother Superior and Sister Batrill, and DEBBIE LEE CARRINGTON (the midget prostitute from TOTAL RECALL) shows up abruptly as a machine gun toting killer named Hot Pocket (OH!).
BITCH SLAP will not win an Oscar or a Pulitzer. It is however, a very fun time and is as visceral and crazy as the title would suggest. The movie never takes itself seriously at all and director RICK JACOBSON is clearly having a blast throwing every exploitation cliche he can think of at you. It is a B-movie that knows it’s a B-movie and wants to be the biggest, loudest and sexiest one around.
Check it out if you’re fortunate enough to be in one of the cities that’s playing it in limited release. It’s also available On Demand, so if you’re in the mood for hot girls with huge boobs firing big guns and kicking ass, this one’s for you. Nerd out!
