Bad Writing, Bad acting, Bad Editing - Great Locations!

Well, after seeing this movie over the weekend on a big screen in Hollywood I have to say it's not the worst movie I've ever seen but close! The writing is full of clichés, the editing looks like it was done with a machete and the directing was either non-existent or he was loaded while filming. The lead actress, Indus had maybe two expressions throughout the whole movie. She wandered around the old Bunker Hill section of Los Angeles in a stupor most of the time. Her strip scene was a laugh riot. She was supposed to be looking seductive and instead looked like she was grimacing from a gall stone! There is a nosy old woman who lives in her building who overacted to the point I thought she was auditioning for Halloween Haunted House. Her hair perpetually up in curlers and a face that looked like Peter Lorre IN DRAG! Plot concerns a stripper who gets murderous at the same time she gets aroused. The only thing interesting about this movie was the great seedy locations provided by Bunker Hill, a location that city officials should have been executed for destroying instead of restoring. Great old Victorian Homes that were bulldozed in the late 60's to make way for tall office buildings. Watch this curio piece for that alone. I laughed out loud at the intended high drama!
