Very entertaining horror comedy romp
Woodyanders23 May 2012
Warning: Spoilers
Mean and domineering Jane (the luscious Theresa Lynn) and the sweet and ditsy Jackie (adorable J.J. North) are sisters who suffer from severe trauma after witnessing the murder/suicide of their parents as well as the rape and murder of their sibling Janice by a gang of nasty punks. The pair are deemed fit to re-enter society and get released from a sanitarium where they underwent extensive rehabilitation therapy. However, Jane and Jackie prove to be anything but sane and harmless as they embark on a brutal spree in which they torture, murder, and mutilate any man luckless enough to cross their lethal paths. Director Peter Jacelone, who also co-wrote the cheerfully demented script with James L. Edwards, pours on the hilariously tasteless pitch-black humor and blithely excessive over-the-top gory carnage with considerable glee and gusto as our titular wacko duo do their delightfully crazy thing. The spirited performances by Lynn and especially North keep the picture humming throughout; they display an utterly charming chemistry and really have a ball with their fierce verbal sparring scenes. Anthony Bruno contributes a likable turn as Jackie's nice guy love interest Todd (he works at a sperm bank!) while Michael Devlin and Stacy Matthewson are funny as the two sleazeball detectives on the case. Better still, both female leads bare their beautifully bountiful breasts and the movie pulls out all the stops with a gloriously wild and surprising climactic confrontation between the police and a bunch of greasy bikers. An absolute hoot.

Psychotic sisters on a manhunt ..........
merklekranz29 June 2012
Now I am not saying "Psycho Sisters" is a good movie. It certainly does not fulfill the directors vision as a frightening serial killer film. What it is, is an entertaining over the top "dark comedy", that wears it's low budget proudly. Hateful sisters, Theresa Lynn and J.J. North, creatively kill a nice assortment of guys, adding their "members" to a rapidly growing collection of male sex organs. Exploitive? Certainly. Entertaining? Definitely. Although the "black comedy" element is sporadic, scenes such as killing a couple bikers with a well hidden machete is a good example of the macabre humor. Remember the sisters credo, "The only good man is a dead man" . - MERK

Sexy slasher sisters
Stevieboy66625 July 2017
Two blonde, buxom sisters go on a male killing spree after being released from a psychiatric clinic, all to avenge the rape & murder of their other sibling. Very low budget, bad acting and cheap special effects, but there's also plenty of humour to be found here & thankfully it works! If you're a fan a trashy slasher/exploitation movies then this I recommended.

Three sisters who witnessed their mom cut off dad's part private and then kill herself grow up to be loners. One day, all three of the sisters are raped. One of them ends up getting murdered. The two sisters keep seeing their dead sister tell them to kill all men. So when they get out of an asylum, that is exactly what they do. They kill every man in site. However, one of the sisters falls in love with a man which creates some serious problems with the other sister.

If your in the mood for a film that is so bad it is good, then give this a try. It is a lot of fun and features plenty of bad acting and over the top moments along with some sex and nudity to keep you interested. Ineptly directed remake of the 1995 film of the same title.

Unrated; Graphic Nudity, Strong Graphic Violence, Profanity, Rape, and Sexual Situations.

The director goes all out to put on an entertaining show...and he has succeeded!
capkronos21 May 2003
Here's a movie that's sure to offend! As children, Jane and Jackie Sicole witnessed their mother kill and castrate their Nam-vet rapist father before blowing her brains out. As teens, they saw their baby sister get gang raped and strangled to death by some obnoxious punks. So, needless to say, as adults, the Sicole sisters have a bone to pick with all men and don't hesitate to kill them whenever a chance comes their way. They keep the severed penis' of victims in mason jars and a bunch of investigators are hot on their trail.

All of this, as sick and tasteless and exploitative and offensive and gory as it is, is also surprisingly well done on a very low budget and thankfully teeters on camp, so the twisted violence and sadism ends up being more amusing than nauseating. The director (who co-scripted with James L. Edwards) fills his film with action, sex, violence and such a surprising amount of clever and amusing comedic touches, that they completely offset most of the grisliness. The performances delivered by Theresa Lynn and J.J. North are also very fun. This was a remake of a shorter version of the same story, made by WAVE Productions in 1995.

Where are the scissors, Jackie?
pumaye7 July 2004
A very good B-movie from E.I. Indipendent, casting a couple of gorgeous looking girls (Theresa Lynn and my favorite J.J. North) as demented serial killers slashing all the men they may put their hands over - well, quite all. You may expect a cheap movie, full of breasts and buns, of horrible gags, similar to dozens of others. Well, it is not so: both the lead girls are far better actresses than you may think; the nudes are really, really limited - at least in the version I've seen, perhaps more in the unrated version - gore is a plenty, but not so diffuse. Still, you are able to enjoy this rape-revenge slasher from start to finish, with its simple, but workable plot, and when you reach the end you definitely have not added a remarkable opus in your collection, but still you are glad to have seen and enjoy it.
