Storyline

Tromatic Super Heroine Susan Morris has to learn to fend for herself when she decides to escape from the urban jungle. While looking for a charming house in the country, she falls into the clutches of a band of brawny brutes - Mongo and his crew of corporate cretins. A once sweet working girl from the city, Susan is pushed to her limits and becomes a fearsome female warrior. She escapes imprisonment from the gang and, craving revenge, metamorphosizes into a heroic woodland creature. Armed with instruments of steel and skills derived from primitive survival instincts, she repels the evil onslaught. Macho Woman has arrived! Written by Shaithis <shaithis@rocketmail.com>

Low rent actioner shot in the Californian mountains
30 October 2016 | by Leofwine_dracaSee all my reviews

THEY CALL ME MACHO WOMAN! is another trashy low budget oddity put out by Troma, although this isn't one of their own films as it lacks the bizarre stuff and the humour that typifies a true Troma-made film. Instead it's a cheesy, low rent action film shot in the Santa Cruz mountains in California. Director Patrick G. Donahue made a quartet of similarly-themed action/revenge movies over the course of a decade or so and obviously had a thing for the genre.

Sadly, despite the outlandish title, this is very much par for the course as these things go. The plot is repetitive and merely consists of our heroine being repeatedly captured by the bad guys, managing to turn the tables and escape, only to repeat the scenario again. There is a kind of momentum that sees the story through on occasion but the lack of budget means that this is a cheap adventure indeed. The occasional gore effect is well achieved although limited in scope.

The cast members are probably the worst thing about this film as all of the assembled actors give non-performances. It comes as little surprise that lead actress Debra Sweaney was never heard of again. Hulking villain Brian Oldfield was a real-life shotput champion, if you can believe. Welcome to the world of low-budget filmmaking!
