As Zipper's Clown Palace (a strip bar) closes, Neil wanders in and decides to hold the dancers, bartender, and remaining customers hostage. He torments them with little tasks he wants performed, playing on their weaknesses and relying on his gun for intimidation. Eventually the hostages begin formulating plans to thwart his control. Meanwhile, two policemen are observing the outside of the strip joint, realizing that something's wrong and trying to decide if it's worth ruining their buzz to intervene. Written by

This movie has an interesting premise. A supposedly blind man (Rick Dean) enters a strip club. You wonder for what purpose. Clearly he can't see anything behind his shades. Perhaps, he's there for the drinks. Or maybe, he has an acute sense of smell. This is after all a fully nude strip club. Well, to make a long story short, the answer is OBSESSION. You can't blame Rick. Maria Ford, the lead dancer, is a 9/10. She's all-natural, but her best assets are her lovely face and legs. A beautiful woman is a wonder of nature. In a sea of a thousand faces, hers is the one that stands out. Your libido is aroused by her every move, you can't wait to put $100 in her garter. In one of Maria's dance numbers, she wears high-heel sneakers. You know, the kind Little Richard or Mitch Ryder rhapsodize about. Every beautiful stripper has more than one admirer, though. Lance August plays a stuttering customer, who apparently comes to this bar just to see Maria. Naturally the plot develops to the point where Lance and Maria become strange bar-fellows, who must cope with madman Rick, when he draws a gun on the bartender, patrons, and other dancers. This movie has something for all fans of exploitation films to savor. In addition to a gun crazed loonie, a sexy blond, and a shy geek, you also have two lesbian or bi-sexual strippers (one being tiny, and the other buff), the usual horny drunks, two cops who half-work, and a cozy venue for all to interact. Without going XXX, this is about as realistic a depiction of strip clubs as you'll find in any film. Forget about Showgirls (Elizabeth Berkley) and StripTease (Demi Moore). I wouldn't give those ladies a $1 tip.
