Storyline

Following the brutal rape of a young woman by a gang of construction workers, a mysterious figure wearing a motorcycle helmet and driving a gold hearse begins hunting the perpetrators down. The masked avenger's weapon of choice, obviously, is a nail gun, with which he (or could it be she?) takes out the rapists one by one. Just who is this murderous vigilante?

Better than some
29 September 2000 | by (West Virginia) – See all my reviews

Ok, first off i'd like to say the acting was real bad but it was laughable, which was what i did alot of laughing. The killers voice got real annoying REAL QUICK, but there was something about this movie that made me want to watch it again...not very sure what THAT thing was.

Overall, very funny, and if your looking for a bad laughable B Movie this is the movie you should rent!
