One of Donald G. Jackson's best films ever
21 February 2011 | by (Austria) – See all my reviews

I'm not kidding: this is really one of Donald G. Jacksons best films.

As a huge fan of Lori Jo Hendrix I'm glad that she has the female lead here: she plays Jeannie, the owner of a Strip Club. Due to some gambling debts of her father, the dubious Rinaldi (played by a very charismatic Jeff Conaway) is co-owner of her club. And he does everything to get the club closed. Great to mention are also the scenes Conaway has here with Indie veteran Gino Dentie as Sal.

Robert Z'Dar in a few great but much too short appearances plays the Barkeeper Jack, who gets fired after offering the girls they should play in his porn movies. Jack wants revenge.

Tim Abell plays Mark, who just came into town. He saves Jeannie from Jack and Jeannie and Mark both start a beautiful romance. Jeannie offers him a job as barkeeper.

A lot of beautiful girls dancing around naked in the club (one of them is Jill Kelly who also was dance consultant here), and Don Stroud has some great scenes as Banger dancing around in the club and scaring people (and Stroud was always at his best when he played heavies).

The whole film has been given a Grindhouse-Look, like Robert Rodriguez did it with "Planet Terror", and it does well to this film, too. It gives him a nice 70ies Look.

Beautiful girls, the prettiest of them to me is the lovely Lori Jo Hendrix, a charismatic Jeff Conaway and great appearances by indie veterans Don Stroud, Robert Z'Dar and Gino Dentie and a cool Dance-Soundtrack - this is really a good film.
