Not as horrible as you might think!!
8 September 2009 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

Considering that the film has a score of 2.1 and it was made by Al Adamson, you'd expect the film to be a lot worse. Now I am NOT saying it was good--it really does suck. But the film isn't nearly as bad as I'd assume--and I definitely assume the worst when I see an Adamson film!! He definitely ranks in the top 10 of worst film directors of all time--along with such great "auteurs" as Ed Wood, Ted Mikels, Hershell Gordon Lewis, William Grefe, Ray Dennis Steckler and the like. If you don't believe me, try watching Adamson's Dracula VS. FRANKENSTEIN, HORROR OF THE BLOOD MONSTERS, HELL'S BLOODY DEVILS and FIVE BLOODY GRAVES (the only one I listed that I managed to rate as high as 2 and most of his films have overall ratings in the range of 1.5-2.5). He truly was a genius at creating garbage--and bad film fans like me enjoy laughing at the ineptitude of the man and his films. But, as I was saying, this film isn't nearly as bad as this list of dreck...though, naturally, it still is dreck! The film is about a team of two female assassins who use a prostitute to kill a man. THe prostitute has no idea she's being used when she slips a pill into the man's drink for the assassins. When the man then dies, the prostitute takes off for Mexico. But, the assassins' boss is a careful man and he orders the two to follow her and kill her--he wants no witnesses. The rest of the film is a cross-country journey to complete this hit.

At no point in the film is there any real excitement or thrills. The chases are amazingly low-speed, dull and filled with Ford Pinto vehicles (now THAT'S the perfect chase car!). As a result, the best the film can deliver is a mild break from the tedium. This break from the tedium also occurs when the ladies in the film inexplicably take off their clothes--often at the most inopportune and ridiculous moment. The worst example is the sick and degenerate scene involving one of the lady assassins raping a retarded guy and shooting him in the head during this! It's not funny but gross and even Adamson should have been ashamed of himself for this outrage. But, even with this sick touch, the film manages to entertain at times (particularly at the film's climax--no pun intended), though this is quite accidental. I'd score this one a 2 and because of the retarded rape scene, I DON'T recommend you see it--some things are better left unseen.
