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".

Not One of Franco's Greats

While driving on tour late night through a lonely road in the countryside of Spain, the van of the punk band Killer Barbies has an accident and breaks down. A creepy old man invites the group to spend the night in the castle of Countess Von Fledermaus and presents himself as her secretary Arkan.

How many times can you play the same terrible song in one movie? I lost count after a while. Are the Barbies a good band? I have no idea. Maybe. Maybe not. If I got to hear more of their music and not just the one or two tracks, I could better decide. So if this film was some sort of promotional deal for them, it did not work on me.

The one good thing about the movie? It had midgets. And that is the only thing making this film get a 2 rather than a 1 in my book.
