Storyline

Filmed in Kentucky and drawing on the true story of a Lexington killing spree by LaFonda Fay Foster and Tina Hickey Powell, 100 Proof is a disturbingly authentic drama that portrays what kind of environment and events might lead up to such horrifying, seemingly random violence. Barely able to support their drug and alcohol habits, two women in a small, impoverished southern town turn to hustling and prostitution to get by. When the more forceful of the pair runs into her alcoholic and sexually abusive father (Jim Varney, in quite a change of pace from his Ernest films), it triggers a brutal series of murders. A startling debut feature from director Jeremy Horton.

If you liked BOYS DON'T CRY, try this one.
19 January 2001 | by Eegah GuySee all my reviews

Like BOYS DON'T CRY, this film takes place in the milieu of the small-town Midwest where alcohol and drugs are the main focus of life for the bored people who live there. The first hour meanders a lot but stick with it because once these characters pile into a car and day turns to night this film take a steep downward spiral into senseless violence. The acting can be a little amateurish but the last half hour does pack a real punch. Seeing funny-guy Jim Varney play a small serious part here was a special treat.
