MOVIE REVIEW: The Gore Gore Girls 1972
A black-gloved sicko has been murdering beautiful young skrippas ("strippers" in plain English haha). Not content with just killing them, the murderer tortures them in comedically evil ways. We're talking eyeball popping, face ironing, head frying and an infamous scene involving a meat tenderizer and salt. A local reporter Nancy Weston (Amy Farrell), hoping to get the story of a lifetime, hires prissy, obnoxious detective Abraham Gentry (Frank Kress) to take on the case. Ditzy Nancy decides to play amateur detective and joins Abraham on his crime-solving spree. There are several suspects: the strip club owner Marzdone Mobilie (Henny Youngman), a bar patron who draws faces on fruit and then smashes them, and Mary, the leader of a Women's Lib organization who pickets the strip joint(her picket sign says "Quit the Tit" I can't make this up y'all). The pair make frequent trips to the strip club where the audience gets to see the legion of the Rhythmless Nation.....i.e, these skrippas can't dance a lick(haha). In order to solve the crime, Abraham must use Nancy as bait to catch the killer. No more spoilers from me y'all.
This is a hilarious, gory, ridiculous mess, and it was intended to be that way. The scenes of gore and nudity are plentiful. Some of the killings may be hard to watch but don't close your eyes, it always ends in a comedic manner. The gore is so over the top.....it's almost cartoonish in nature. Det. Gentry is such a putz, you'll be rooting for the killer to off his ass. Henny Youngman, the King of one-liners and famous for the "take my wife please" jokes makes a small cameo in this film. It is said that he denied ever being in the film, but I have the video to prove it (guffaw). After seeing this film, you might want to remove french fries and chocolate milk from your diet! This is definitely in the "so bad it's good" category. So lock up the kiddies, pop in this dvd and prepare to be sick with laughter.
VERDICT: 3 Soul Claps
