Former pin-up model and actress Ginny (Lynn Lowry) had been cast aside by the heartless and exploitative modeling industry when she was a young woman due to her body type. Ginny didn't take rejection well and over the years developed into a revenge seeking, blood thirsty, broken woman.

Scott Hallam praises star Lynn Lowry, noting that she "literally has to serve up equal parts frail old woman, sexy temptress, good Samaritan, and bat-(expletive) crazy killer all while offering some really thought-provoking dialogue about what true beauty is and what type of beauty is valued by society. Lowry absolutely crushes it in every aspect of her character." Hallam is right, and those who are saying that Lowry has given one of the best performances of her career are correct.

Dave Dubrow, usually a champion of independent film, describes this one as "Muddy in theme, terrible in script, and inconsistent in performance, the movie failed to rise above the shoestring production quality." He also (correctly) points out the excessive profanity, shaky camera and often out-of-focus scenes. (By no means am I anti-profanity, but there were far more f-bombs than anyone could ever naturally use in one sentence.) I have to say that the camera was really what killed this film. The casting is great, the acting ranges between adequate and excellent (some actors were more invested than others), and the concept is clever. But everything just looks horrible – too bright, too dark, too jittery. When you have one of the goddesses of the silver screen, Tiffany Shepis, and you find a way to make her look unflattering, you know your camera is garbage.

Despite its shortcomings, the disc may be worth picking up if you're a fan of any of those involved. The special features alone are a good draw. The DVD from Wild Eye Releasing includes a feature-length commentary with director Debbie Rochon, deleted scenes, a Babette Bombshell short, Voltaire interview and much more.
