Hey there Freaky Darlings! Finally back from vacation and ready to take over the reigns. Just as I suspected, my two Ghouls have totally trashed everything. But they are currently serving out punishment in the dungeon. At any rate, we have a new writer in our midst. Our very own Psychotik Girl Luci will be helping with some of the work load around her. She’s a lovely fallen angel with a penchant for tormenting humans. She likes long walks on a blood soaked battlefield and candle lit inquisitions… Did I also mention Lucifer’s sister… Fun detail…ANY WHOOOOO! She is debuting today with a throw back review of the movie, Bitch Slap have a look see…
Psychotik Review: Bitch Slap
Bitch Slap is a B-Movie that revolves around three outlandishly sexy women from three different walks of life. A down-on-her-luck stripper, a drug-running killer, and a ball-busting business woman all trying to retrieve stolen jewels from a gangster’s hideout while competing with other crooks pretty much spells out a movie full of hot chicks with guns. Julia Voth, America Olivo, and Erin Cummings star as Trixie, Camero, and Hel respectively. The movie dives right into gratuitous tit shots and slow motion entrances, and Camero having some sort of orgasmic breakdown due to pills she’s popping. There is already obviously a lot of tension between the three ladies; be it angry or sexual. Hel is the businesswoman, and the ringleader of the group. Camero the killer and it’s given very early on that she’d rather not work with either girl. Trixie, the stripper, doesn’t seem to want to be involved at all and spends a lot of time whining. And I do mean a lot of time.
The main plot line happens in one area, a seemingly abandoned trailer in the middle of a desert. The flashbacks take place in a handful of settings, including a strip bar, underground fight ring, and prison. Though I don’t believe it’s said, the viewer is lead to believe that the story takes place in Vegas and the surrounding desert. The plot line starts dead center, so there is already development between Hel, Trixie, and Camero. They seem to just be women working together on a job. As you get deeper into the movie, it is revealed that the girls’ pasts intertwine more than any of them had previously thought. The movie timeline jumps from current events to an event that previously happened, but at random time intervals, and can be a little confusing at first. As the movie goes on the facts revealed tie in together better, but they still jump sporadically.
A host of supporting characters show up to the trailer looking for the girls. Most of them are faced from the flashbacks with the exception of a local sheriff, who is also not what he appears. All of these people seem to be tied together around one central person, a fabled man named Pinkie. Pinkie seems to be a sort of mob leader, but he’s never seen and his skill with a blade is near legendary. The girls are all after millions of dollars worth of diamonds that a gangster stole from Pinkie, hoping to snatch them and get away before anyone is the wiser. Alliances are easily shattered and it turns to an all out brawl, but the final fight is between the three girls themselves. Camero absolutely loses her mind, Hel’s past is revealed, and the final twist was something that I did not see coming at all.
There are obvious “service” scenes, like the girls’ water fight and the extended hookup scenes verging on soft core porn that really have no contribution to the plot. Outside of those, the acting of Cummings as Hel is phenomenal. She has the perfect amount of grace and sass to pull of her part. Voth and Olivo can both get a little over dramatic, but they also portray their characters well. All three have good on-screen chemistry together. The supporting cast members also have decent acting skills, though I wasn’t a big fan of the characters Hot Wire and Kinki. The pair were both very overacted. Actors who were solely in flashbacks – as well as the flashbacks themselves – were extremely overacted. Most of the fist fights seem very staged to the point of parody, but weapon oriented fights are choreographed well. One of the things that amused me the most about this movie was the names they gave to extras. Titles such as Nasty Nubile Escort, Mercenary Rebel Yell, Totally Awful Background Artist, and the duo of Here Comes The Bride, There Goes The Groom are abundant in the cast list.
While some of the overacting and a few of the characters were a turn off, and the almost parodic nature of the script, the ending twist did it enough for me that I would watch this movie again. Well honestly, hot chicks with guns, I probably would have watched it again anyway. I give this movie 3 Top Hats out of 5.
So how did she do? I think she’s a keeper. Be sure to look for more of her here and at the Psychotik Girls Facebook

Until Next Time, My Freaky Darlings,
