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.

For someone who is not a L.O.L.er, I found myself guffawing from beginning to end! What's not to love about Scream of the Bikini? The premise is wickedly clever, the writing is spot on. The director OBVIOUSLY knows what he's doing. Shot so well, so enjoyable to look at and you truly do believe this is footage from the 60's. Well acted with the two lead actresses taking the cake with their pitch perfect performances. Both drop dead gorgeous AND hilarious? When do you ever witness that combo?! They hold you in the palm of their tiny super model hands and you are theirs until the lights come up. And believe me when the lights come up, you let out a sigh of disappointment that it's over. Yeah, it's that good. The only negative was when I discovered it was just a special screening and that Scream of the Bikini isn't in the theaters! Considering it's better than 90% of the big budget movies out there, I know it won't be long before it hits the big time and when it does I'll be there to watch it again!
