Timberwolf Entertainment give us their take on late night Cinemax ( or as we called it when we were kids Skinomax) horror. This is the story of Crystal and John. Thru flashbacks we learned that Crystal was molested by her dad. Until John killed him. Which started a love affair between brother and sister. Do not worry they do not talk much about it. But, they do show a lot about it. Crystal is a burlesque dancer who has a troupe of women or fellow dancers she gets to stay with her before they start their tour. And a crazed psychopath is targeting each one of them.
This is the Marie Lynn vehicle, which you get her for 3 minutes. Thru a flashback scene, who stands around and watches John and Crystal have sex. So this is the part where I am supposed to trash the film and tell you how bad it is and the acting was awful and do not see this ever. But, you know what, this film was fun. I mean almost every female in this film was completely nude, except for Marie Lynn. The acting was not as bad as you would think. I mean the script is a joke. But, the acting worked for the non existant script. The gore scenes, there are a few, were ok if not just totally laughable and cheese fun. I mean the budget was small, what do you expect? Scream 3 was made for 50 plus million and it was not this fun. The incest scenes were disturbing. So much so, they gave them to you quite a few more times. Each time more graphic than the last. And, whoever played Crystal as a teenager, those nude scenes were scary. I want to see a ID for this girl. She looked all of 13. And yes, those were graphic as well. ( I think I may have sold some dvds with that last line)
As a whole,I would recommend it to anyone who knows what they are getting into. I mean, if you are a horror fan and you are looking for scares and awesome blood. This is not your film. But, if you are a pervert and love to look at hot nude women, who just ham it up and give you cheese fun. This is the film. I can just see it now, you hated Hobo with a shotgun, Troll Hunter, Hatchet 2, Mold! and Rubber but you like Burlesque Massacre, your serious? I thought the film was well shot and fun. Movies like this make my job just fun sometime. With all the problems in the world, a film like this does not at all take it self serious, and just gives you a dose of old school 70’s sleeze. Plus the ending opened itself up for a sequel, which Marie Lynn has since confirmed.
