Scream of the Bikini is a 1960s action-spy-thriller by acclaimed South American director, Fernando Fernandez. Jasmine Orosco and Paola Apanapal - in their English language film debuts - are Bridget and Sophia: gorgeous super models by day, brutal bounty hunters by night. Murder, intrigue and pillow fights await our beautiful leading ladies at every turn, as they match wits and martial arts with a coterie of madmen and women bent on world domination. Filmed somewhere in South America in 1966, and poorly translated and dubbed by Germans, this unintentionally funny James Bond meets Barbarella love child plumbs the seedy depths of the international fashion model/psycho-killer underworld with a boldness that only a gun to the head can provide.

An instant cult classic for this generation in the tradition of Monty Python's Holy Grail and Rocky Horror Picture Show. From the title to the movie poster to the film itself, Scream Of The Bikini is everything I love about the movies... inventive, sexy and brilliant. Beneath the James Bond cloak and dagger plot, the writers and Director find a rhythm that is refreshing and compelling. There is even a nod to Antonioni's Blowup that, among other references, makes you realize that you are watching a film that loves other films as well as the experience of watching films. The actors make this world of eccentric characters believable, accessible and lovable. At the same time, the cinematography adds its own character to the plot with striking colors and composition. Like the pillow-fight between the beautiful protagonists, Scream Of The Bikini is smart and flirty. It is only a matter of minutes before Scream Of The Bikini dominates the world.
