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.

In the tradition of Monty Python and the Christopher Guest's Mockumentaries, Scream of the Bikini takes the traditional spy movie of the 60's and 70's and turns it on its funny bone. Allowing a company of actors to mine every last drop of comedy out of the genre. It's is hard to watch a minute of Scream of the Bikini without laughing out loud. Only goes to show that the quality of the comedy is not dependent on the size of a film's budget. While you can tell the film was made on a shoe string budget, this is never a deficit to the quality of the film, but used to evoke the creativity of the film makers. Still the point of the film is to provide a reason to laugh and at that it succeeds.
