Storyline

Mean and domineering Jane and the sweet and ditsy Jackie are two radically contrasting sisters who suffer from severe trauma after witnessing the murder/suicide of their parents as well as seeing their other sibling Janice raped and killed by her assailants. The pair are deemed fit to re-enter society and get released from a sanitarium where they have undergone extensive rehabilitation therapy. However, Jane and Jackie prove to be anything but sane and harmless as they embark on a vicious spree in which they torture, murder, and mutilate any man luckless enough to cross their lethal paths.

The director goes all out to put on an entertaining show...and he has succeeded!
21 May 2003 | by (Ohio, USA) – See all my reviews

Here's a movie that's sure to offend! As children, Jane and Jackie Sicole witnessed their mother kill and castrate their Nam-vet rapist father before blowing her brains out. As teens, they saw their baby sister get gang raped and strangled to death by some obnoxious punks. So, needless to say, as adults, the Sicole sisters have a bone to pick with all men and don't hesitate to kill them whenever a chance comes their way. They keep the severed penis' of victims in mason jars and a bunch of investigators are hot on their trail.

All of this, as sick and tasteless and exploitative and offensive and gory as it is, is also surprisingly well done on a very low budget and thankfully teeters on camp, so the twisted violence and sadism ends up being more amusing than nauseating. The director (who co-scripted with James L. Edwards) fills his film with action, sex, violence and such a surprising amount of clever and amusing comedic touches, that they completely offset most of the grisliness. The performances delivered by Theresa Lynn and J.J. North are also very fun. This was a remake of a shorter version of the same story, made by WAVE Productions in 1995.
