Storyline

Apocalypse and the Beauty Queen is a hip, sexy, thriller with a strong protagonist, a horrifying tyrant, and a series of disturbing twist that build into a shocker of an ending. Amber, the main character is a mixture of beauty queen and revolutionary. After being told she was ugly through childhood, her self loathing became confused once she conquered the competitive world of fashion modeling. Being rejected by the same fashion industry that loved her just a few years earlier (she was in her late 20's), she returns to her small rural hometown. Suddenly the world ends, and Amber finds she has the charisma and strength to help rebuild her corner of the world in her own way. Written by Thomas Smugala

A thousand red roses have merely brought a thousand stains upon my heart
23 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

It is impossible to watch this movie and not see it as the final result of watching reality TV and celebrating vapid starlets and beauty queens. The fact that some 90 million people voted for someone exactly like the beauty queen (Beverly Hynds) in this film is testament to our fascination with the lowest common denominator.

It is a post-apocalyptic world, where warlords rule. In this case, the county is ruled by a fading beauty queen who kidnaps young girls. Sylvie (Courtney Kocak) is one such girl, who also narrates.

This queen, much like the Blood Countess soon starts killing the young girls to add their blood to her bath water. She is obsessed with beauty and loyalty.

Gunner Hanson (Hellblock 13, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre) plays a very prominent role, and gives a great talk on aging.

Like all people in power, there is always someone waiting to dethrone you. In this case her assistant (Katie Rudisel) is waiting for her to finally flip.

Great nudity from Kocak and Rudisel, and a great view, although very very short, of our lovely Debbie.
