Storyline

This horror story involves a woman hiding out with four pastel colored poodles in a desert gas station with the loot from a heist while her boy friend does prison time. A meteorite crashes near the station transforming the woman into an alien being with a gigantic voracious tongue and her poodles are transformed into four drag queens. The whole thing grows even weirder as her boy friend escapes from prison and also encounters the meteorite, as does a mute Nun who is converted into a sexy drum majorette. Pursued by the prison officials who are after him, the whole group eventually come into conflict. Written by John Sacksteder <jsackste@bellsouth.net>

Great gore, crazy plot
6 November 2000 | by (Porto Alegre, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Man you really can't imagine what this movie is before you see it. Well to start with the plot: a girl lives in a convent, waiting for her boyfriend to get out of jail. Something like a pink meteor falls in earth and a piece of it goes inside her soup. Then she turns into this weird woman in black tight clothes, with a 10 feet killer tongue. To complete this nonsense her poodles are transformed in three really strange gay men, all this while her boyfriend tries to escape from the mad sadistic guy in prison. A must see if you enjoy B horror movies!
