Trivia

Originally to be titled "Killer Barbies", which is the actual name of the punk rock band that stars in the movie, but Mattel would not allow the use of their Barbie trademark name, so the word's spelling in the title (as well as all the references to the band's name in the movie) was ultimately changed to "Barbys".

Jesus Franco Presents The Killer Barbies!
19 August 2005 | by (Sacramento, CA) – See all my reviews

Killer Barbys (1996) was a vanity piece disguised as an old creepy horror film used to promote the Spanish punk-pop band THE KILLER BARBIES. The band is fronted by the hot Silvia Superstar. A lot of the band's music is played during the movie. Two of the actually band members appear in the film (Silvia Superstar and her boyfriend co-founder/Drummer Billy King). Jesus Franco creates a creepy old school horror film around the band.

The band is cruising the back roads of Spain heading towards another gig. But the band never makes it to the other town before nightfall. Their van has broken down and they need to find a place that has a telephone. Three of the band members leave the broken down vehicle to look for help. What luck the band has. They come across an old castle. Inside they find an elderly gentleman who offers them a place for the night will he calls a tow truck. Silvia has her suspicions about the place and the people that dwell within it. The countess (the owner of the castle) wants them to stay for dinner. Will Silvia and her band mates take the middle aged woman's offer. How will the two band members who stayed behind fare? Why was the elderly host acting peculiar? To find out you' ll just have to watch KILLER BARBYS!!

A fun film that doesn't try to be something it's not. If you're into vanity projects or some old school horror then you'll want to watch KILLER BARBYS. Silvia Superstar is hot and I hope you'll agree with me fellas! En espanol with English sub-titles.

Highly recommended.
