Hehehehe!! Betcha THAT title got your attention!
Every now and then this lil’ Catgirl likes a film that tells the world that we girls can be sexy and, more importantly, still kick your ass if you don’t watch out. This has been a particularly good year for such movies, with the likes of “Chocolate”, “Machine Girl”, “Left For Dead”, “Punch Lady” and “Planet Terror” hitting DVD release. (And joining the pile of discs that teeter precariously next to my TV….)
But it looks like this year just might go out with a bang….a big BLOODY Bang. Coming this December might be the best of them all….“Bitch Slap”. Goodness!! That title alone is soooo “exploitative” that it just absolutely begs for a movie!!
How this one slipped under my radar, I’ll never know. I’m blaming the fact that it isn’t an asian film….. but I’m in the loop now.
The synopsis available reads: “Bitch Slap” follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort massive booty from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive for the score, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and they are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected… themselves. It’s the ultimate morality tale as, one by one, they realize the whole “she-bang” was a set-up and one of the film’s characters may not even be human…- moviesonline.ca
And yes….. a nifty Trailer is already available too! But you’ll have to “Read On” for a glimpse of that!! Hehehehe!!
This one looks nifty…. and by nifty, this lil’ Catgirl means “baaaaddd”. But in a good, good, way!
Looks like there might be a bit of a “Hercules” and “Xena” reunion going on, as the writers have worked on both of those series as well as having Kevin Sorbo, Lucy Lawless, and Renee O’Connor doing cameos in the film.
The promotional stuff sounds promising as well: “‘Bitch Slap’ is a post-modern, thinking man’s throwback to the ‘B’ Movie/Exploitation films of the 1950’s – 70’s as well as a loving, sly parody of the same. Inspired by the likes of ‘Dragstrip Girls,’ ‘Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill,’ Kung Fu Nun’ and the pantheon of Blacksploitation films, ‘Bitch Slap’ will mix girls, guns, outrageous action and jaw-dropping visuals with a message… don’t be naughty!”
So far….so good. This one is definitely going on my list to keep a eye out for. (I’m already sizing up my “Leather Booties of Death” in anticipation of some vicarious fun!!)
Watch out guys!!! Hehehe!!
