Storyline

With his magazine, "Image", in financial trouble, Rex needs one spectacular issue to pull it out so he flies his editor, Kate, and a group of his top models to an isolated island paradise for a photo shoot. From the beginning, the trip is marred by Rex's designs on Kate's younger sister, Rachel, and his ruthless manipulation of the models and crew. Finally, he pushes one of the women into a stunt that costs her her life, beginning a pattern of death and murder reminiscent of "Ten Little Indians". Written by Marg Baskin <marg@asd.raytheon.ca>

**SPOILERS** Having trouble with the sluggish sales of his top fashion magazine "Image" owner and editor Rex Kingman, Lee Majors,plans to shoot his anniversary issue in an exotic and deserted Caribbian island far from civilization. With a bevy of his most gorgeous fashion models, to jump start his lagging publication.

Being a man who knows what sells and what doesn't Kingman takes advantage of everything that goes right or wrong in selling his magazine. At that out of the way island things go a lot worse then anything that he could have even imagined. One by one almost all of his fashion models end up getting killed and their bodies lost under the warm Caribbians surf and waters. Until the only one's left are his lover Kate and her younger sister Rachel, Jennifer O'Neill & Venessa Angel. Kingsman is so distraught over what happened to his girls and even worse the impending collapse of is magazine "Image" that he starts to drink heavily and even take pills on the side. Where he becomes a total wreck of a man.

The last straw is when Kingman,drunk and out of control, attacks and tries to rape young Rachel which has Kate, who still had some affection left for him, tell Kingman just where he can go. Kate also threatens to report him to the police when they get back to the states. The next morning waiting for the plane to show up, and take whoever is still left on the island back home, Kate is found dead floating in he swimming pool. Meanwhile Rachal, in a struggle with the now blind drunk and almost insane Kingman, ends up getting shot and killed by him.

By now the man, Kingman, is a complete and utter wipe-out but wait there's more to the story then what you've seen up until then. It has to do with Kingman's past a past that finally caught up with him. Lee Majors as Rex Kingman is as sleazy and manipulating as anyone you'll ever see in this movie about revenge and retribution. A story that has to do with what turned out to be, for everyone in the movie, the swimsuit fashion shoot from hell.

"The Cover Girls Murders" keeps you guessing to just what's going on until the very end. When it finally exposes to it's audience what was really going on in the movie, and what Kingman is really all about, you'll know what the the saying "What goes around comes around" really means.
