In this allegory on capitalism, director of a known car corporation invites one of his employees to his country villa to give him the good news. He just got promoted. However, the old man is not what he seems and promotion has a price.
Promoted as France's first gore film, Revenge of the Living Dead Girls (La revanche des mortes-vivantes) is a consumate shocker of horror and sex that as grown into a legend as being one of the sickest and most perverse of zombie films.

Liz is a New York prostitute/model whom tries to go straight by having an affair with a good-natured guy, named Michael, only to have her employer, Sam, and his mafia connections refuse to let her leave the business.
An imprisoned model recalls the debached times with her degenerate boss, her drug dealer, and a clean-cut young man whom wants her to quit her nude modeling profession to make a life for herself elsewhere.
An utterly insulting envoi for fringe-cinema's venerated pariah
Andy Milligan's last gasp before he bought the farm was this criminally unamusing slasher-genre lampoon which finds a hospital violently beset by an unidentified serial killer. The eccentric but loyal staff does everything possible to keep the situation under wraps while a bumbling police investigation is underway.
This painfully unfunny dark-humor pasquinade won't likely appease the small-but-avid coterie of Andy Milligan enthusiasts. In most cases, Milligan's monogram directorial flourishes evince a bizarre, dissentient singularity...an unpremeditated aspect with considerable appeal to a niche viewership. Critically speaking, these films are indisputably wretched. To a discriminate audience, however, they transcend critical assay by virtue of their waywardly off-center peculiarities. SURGIKILL is lacking in this distinction, however, as failed attempts at comedy rarely outshine their deficiencies with abstract or specious incidental charm. This film is an improficient blaze of inanity which is entirely non-evident of professionalism in any facet of its lazy fructification. Quite simply put, SURGIKILL is possibly the worst comedy I have ever seen. An unfortunate final coda to a career as diacritic and fascinating as it was inglorious.
Saul Bellow once said..."Any artist should be grateful for a naive grace which puts him beyond the need to reason elaborately." These words could have been a fitting inscription on Andy's grave-marker.
