Just when you thought it was safe to be on your honeymoon.....

Ham and cheese.

Two thoughts of this film when I was watching this.

The ham represents the acting of the actors in this low budget gore-fest, as they ham it up.

The cheese is the plot of this film, mainly swiss and full of holes.

The film opens with a person driving down a road, and the car radio is playing facts from that year. The driver pulls up at a hotel and the hotel clerk falls for the person and finds out she was a he, which leads to the demise of the drag queen, any more than three beers and you would have thought Jackie was a lady, not a guy in a wig, make up and high heels.

When the spirit of the dead drag queen comes back at the hotel clerk's wedding fifteen years later, he is shocked to see he/she and then the body count continues to clock up.

The gore scenes are pretty simple, somewhat borrowed from Friday the 13th films. As the film progresses, you can pretty much guess who is going to die.

I found this film for sale on ebay and watched it on VHS. Interestengly enough, the trailer was featured on another video I saw and the trailer was good, which grabbed my attention.

Laughable yet easy going film.
