Storyline

Entrusted with finding the whereabouts of the teenage runaway, Samantha, the experienced private detective, Jack Chandler, embarks on the seemingly easy mission to track down the girl in Los Angeles' seedy nightclubs. Suspecting that the missing woman has fallen prey to a Hollywood prostitution ring, Jack goes undercover, only to discover that a blood-thirsty cult of lethally beautiful and chainsaw-wielding prostitutes is terrorising the city. Could innocent Samantha be part of Hollywood's demented Chainsaw Hookers? Is Detective Chandler going to be the demonic sect's next victim? Written by Nick Riganas

Crazy Credits

The CHAINSAWS used in this Motion Picture are REAL and DANGEROUS! They are handled here by seasoned PROFESSIONALS. The makers of this Motion Picture advise strongly against anyone attempting to perform these stunts at home. Especially if you are naked and about to engage in strenuous SEX. My conscience is clear, (signed) Fred Olen Ray. See more »

Delivers what it promises

Amongst all the 80's B-movies defined by oceans of fake blood, pervasive nudity, sex puns, and a boilerplate script, Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers is definitely one of them.
