Goofs

When Tom makes love with Cherish, Suzy and Marcy, the girls are wearing see-through nighties and underpants and Tom's hands are untied. It soon cuts to an overhead view in which the girls are only wearing underpants and now Tom's hands are tied to the bedposts. This is followed by various shots in which Tom helps each of the women take off their nighties, with his hands untied for the rest of the scene. See more »

Sexy horror/comedy was not Cirio H. Santiago's forté (but then what was?).
18 November 2011 | by BA_HarrisonSee all my reviews

Take one word from group A (Ninja, Robo, Samurai, Vigilante, Zombie, Vampire, Alien, Cyborg, Barbarian) and one from group B (Cop, Princess, Assassins, Hookers, Warriors, Strikeforce, Muthaf***kers) and you'll have yourself a movie title that sounds awesome. Get Ciro H. Santiago to direct it, and it'll be crap.

Vampire Hookers, for example, has the potential to be a hugely entertaining piece of bloody, sexy schlock horror; in the hands of Santiago, though, the idea becomes a dreadfully unfunny camp comedy/horror full of juvenile humour (bumbling 'Abbot & Costello' type sailors; a flatulent vampire; lady-boy gags), embarrassing performances (poor old John Carradine as a poetry spouting vamp), and cheap props (styrofoam 'stone' blocks), but zero gore.

About the only thing Cirio does right is to cast three absolute stunners as his titular ladies of the night and get them naked a lot—although, somehow, he even manages to botch a scene in which the lusty bloodsucking babes tag-team a lucky sailor: torturously long and amazingly unerotic, it's hard to believe that anyone can make a three-on-one sex session seem so boring!
