Thomas Edward Seymour
Robert Cosgrove Jr.,
Amazingly Hilarious Comedy Film With Horror Elements
A group of college girls work with Miss Johnson (Debbie Rochon) to run a car wash... with plenty of bikini action. All is fine and good until Chef Death is raised from the dead following a communication with him via a Ouija board.
This is one of those reviews where, with all due respect to the people who made this film, I have to be brutally honest. Guys, you really impressed me. I'm serious. As a reviewer for Killer Reviews, I often get contacted by independent film makers who send me films that should never have even been conceived of on those long, drunk nights. I feared this was another one... I mean, "Bikini Bloodbath Car Wash"? Who can take that seriously? But they proved me wrong. While the actors are largely amateurs (with Debbie Rochon being an exception and taking a surprisingly large role as the lesbian matron of the college girls) they are all, without a doubt talented and funny people (and attractive, too, if you're worried about the car wash scenes). I laughed out loud many times, and to my surprise my girlfriend loved it, too. In fact, I think her laughter was longer and harder than mine. For a woman who has only been exposed to such films in the past month, she's really grown fond of them and this was one that stands out.
I want to single out Bruce Seymour, who played Community College Commander. I loved the numerous G.I. Joe references and the Michael Jackson references and many of the more obscure bits. But Seymour's role, although brief, made me want to blow liquids out of my nose if I had any liquids with which to blow. Sadly, my cup was empty.
The "blood" part was actually pretty minimal, whereas the "bikini" part was much greater. And yes, friends, there's some nudity. I think this worked well. I'm all about senseless violence and blood and gore. But comedy is so much harder to achieve, which this film did well. Not to say the gore was awful. There was one effect involving a nipple that shows a level of skill and ingenuity rarely presented at this level. Well played, folks.
For anyone who loves bad jokes, pop culture references and the like... you'll really dig this flick. Don't let the cheese factor fool you, these guys are hilarious and deserve more credit than I can give them. The closest I ever saw to a film like this was "The Janitor", or perhaps "Filthy McNasty". I'd place this between the two -- not as great as "The Janitor", but better than Chris Seaver's "McNasty" (sorry, Debbie, I know you love defending Chris, but he has been beaten). If your video store carries this, rent it. If not, it wouldn't be a bad idea to buy it. Support independent film at its finest.
