It's so trashy, it must be cult
30 August 2005 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

The main characters are two college girls who have to act as prostitutes for one night as a test to enter a student fraternity. As a parallel story their two boyfriends also have an adventure in the same milieu. For those who succeed to watch the film over the entire 89 minutes, there is a little surprise in how the story ends.

The DVD quality was bad, the music terrible, the story inconsistent, the script was bad or maybe didn't exist at all. The actors weren't helped by bad directing.

The obviously low-budget film does not fit in any genre. Part thriller, part action and part college, part tragedy and a bit of romance, non of it convincing.

When watching I tried to guess the year of production. My bet was mid-80s, but obviously I was wrong. Even in 1990, this film must have looked outdated.

So what's cult about this film? It's the 80s, the fashion and what people then thought is cool. I give it a second star, because it is the first film for most participants including the makers.
