Storyline

Set in beautiful Vancouver, four friends set out on an everyday errand and end up in a fight for their lives when they discover the body of a dead hooker left in their trunk. Lead by a sexy, impulsive Badass, her distant Geek twin sister, their bible thumping, Jesus loving Goody Two Shoes friend, and a chaotic, rock star Junkie pal, the group has to put aside their differences to dispose of the body before they're next. Thrown into their own personal purgatory, they face off against persistent police, a sleazy motel manager, chainsaw wielding triads, and a brutal serial killer. All the while they are followed by a mysterious Cowboy Pimp who wants to claim the corpse for his own. Will they uncover the truth behind the body and be able to stand up to their demons? Buckle up and get ready for the ride of your life filled with gun fights, extreme violence, blood, guts, gore, and goats.

Modern grindhouse classic.
22 March 2011 | by krachtmSee all my reviews

After reading some glowing reviews here (which, unfortunately, always triggers my suspicious and cynical nature), I was willing to give this movie a chance, though I was a bit worried that, from the title, I might be in for a cheesefest or someone trying way too hard. Luckily, neither is the case.

There are some distracting things wrong with this movie, but what's surprising is the sheer number of things that are RIGHT. If you're a fan of grindhouse movies, you're probably pretty forgiving of cheap-looking special effects, watery fake blood, and poorly developed characters. In fact, one could make a pretty good argument that a true grindhouse movie almost requires these elements.

This is an impressive debut, and I'd like to see what comes in the future. It'd be a shame if the Soska sisters never got any attention and a chance to prove that they can make really good movies. In the future, however, I'd probably suggest bringing in a script doctor to tighten up the script and give the characters a little more... well, character. Also, less singing in the next movie, please. Whenever someone gets up on a stage and sings, I immediately think to myself, "Filler!" It was admittedly a decent method of contrasting the characters, but that doesn't mean it wasn't also a bit tedious to sit through. I'd give this movie an 8/10, if they cut the musical numbers out.
