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

Quotes

Jack Chandler: Oh yeah, as for Sam... well, she's a big girl. Her mother was happy when she heard Sam was safe, and I needed a secretary - like a hole in the head. But she's a nice kid, so maybe I'll let her stay around awhile. Besides, she's got a great set of tits!

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 »

Masterpiece
8 July 2008 | by psychogoreSee all my reviews

This is the Fred Olen Ray of his golden era, before start making soft core skinnemax flicks. An homage to The Chainsaw Texas Massacre, with the original Leatherface (Gunnar Hansen) and a chainsaw duel between two eighties b-movie goddess. What more do you want? Some gore? you got it. Cheese? this is beyond cheese. Fred Olen Ray is a b-movie fan and here he delivers entertainment from a fan to all the fans. Hope he come back to make this kind of stuff. Im a big fan of his old stuff like this one, like Evil Toons and all that kind of stuff. OK, the eighties are gone i understand it but the spirit of it can live. I heard that he will make a sequel to this movie. Hope so.
