All the while they are followed by a mysterious Cowboy Pimp who wants to claim the corpse for his own. Will they uncover the truth behind the body and be able to stand up to their demons? Buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life filled with gun fights, extreme violence, blood, guts, gore, and goats.

Trivia

The film came from a fake trailer inspired by Grindhouse during the twins' disappointing time at a poorly run film school in Vancouver. When the measly $200 a short budget was taken away from them for their final project, the twins decided to write, direct, produce, star in, and do the stunt work for their own project out of spite. The title 'Dead Hooker in a Trunk' came from Jen Soska wanting something as cool as Jason Eisener's 'Hobo With A Shotgun.' See more »

Really terrible debut movie from the Soska Twins.
6 August 2014 | by (Edinburgh, Scotland, UK) – See all my reviews

I recently saw the film American Mary which was directed by the Soska Twins. I was pretty impressed, as it was quite an interesting and fairly original horror concoction. With this in mind I had to see their debut movie, the brilliantly titled Dead Hooker in a Trunk. Well, after seeing it, all I can say is that they definitely got a lot better. In fairness, this movie seems to have been made on an ultra-low budget, we're taking peanuts here. But even cutting the Soska's some slack on this front, that doesn't change my view that Dead Hooker in a Trunk is a really terrible movie.

Its plot-line is certainly high-concept - four friends find a dead hooker in the trunk of their car. That's it more or less. A strong story is certainly no requirement in a good film but a movie needs to get other things right in the absence of one. And on a technical and artistic level this is an abomination. It has terrible camera-work and sound; really bad acting and an awful script. It's overall just too amateurish to offer very much to anybody. I am nevertheless pleased that these two Canadian sisters have gone on to do better things – as apart from anything else, there should be more women directors out there – but this debut just isn't good on any level I am afraid.
