Quotes

Catherine: What are you gonna do to me?
Lobo: We're gonna play a little game. Clint and I like to call it "Find 'Em and Fuck 'Em". It's kinda like Hide 'N Seek, but not. It's better. It's a lot better. You're gonna go run somewhere and pray I don't find you. "Cause when I find you, I'm gonna fuck you. I'm gonna spray my whipped cream all over that sundae. All over that cherry.
Lobo: All right, it's a run. What are you waiting for, a starting gun? Bang. Run.
Lobo: Here I come! Run, bitch, run! RUN, BITCH, RUN! RUN, BITCH, RUN!

A not bad throwback grind house revenge flick with heart

Some Spoilers may follow

Catherine and Rebecca are two Catholic schoolgirls, whose day takes a severe turn for the worst when they knock into the wrong home while selling bibles door to door. Running afoul of depraved pimp Lobo and his equally vicious gang, Catherine and Rebecca are defiled and Catherine is left to die. Catherine vows revenge, and resolves to make the scumbags pay for their deeds....

Run Bitch Run from the trailer looks almost like a Black Dynamite style parody of exploitation flicks, yet the film itself is actually a heartfelt homage to the genre. It's not nearly as tongue in cheek as one would think from viewing the trailer, and has some dead straight nasty scenes, including one iconic scene that will do for guys in the 00's what I Spit On Your Grave did for guys back in the '70s.

Although it suffers from a rather meandering middle and randomness,(Possibly due to budgetary constraints) it's overall a solid and entertaining enough homage to grind house trash cinema, and director Joseph Guzman is obviously an exploitation fan as he has a great eye and the film has a pretty kick ass feel for the era.

Overall, it's flawed in parts, and its biggest flaw is that it's actually rather restrained violence-wise, but it's still an enjoyable contemporary exploitation flick, and worth checking out overall for fans of the genre.

It's got a cool score and all so overall, grindhouse fans could do worse.
