Cocktail Girls Killer.
1 May 2011 | by HumanoidOfFleshSee all my reviews

"The Swinging Barmaids" by Gus Trikonis is about a serial killer who stalks and kills cocktail waitresses.Three murders are pretty harrowing and misogynistic and there is plenty of soft-core nudity.The first victim of drooling psychopath is played by voluptuous Dyanne "Ilsa" Thorne and let me tell you one thing:she is the blast and her fight scene with the killer is gloriously hysterical."The Swinging Barmaids" also contains oodles of bare breasts with so many of the film's featured actresses seen in various states of undress and it's this kind of welcomed gratuity that further enhances its raunchy cult status.If you liked "The Centerfold Girls" you can't go wrong with this sleazy spectacle.8 out of 10.An essential and unfortunately forgotten exploitation classic.
