“One part classic horror literature and one part Skinamax.”
Gabriella Hall, Blythe Metz and her breasts
Jackie Hyde is a telemarketer with no friends (which is somewhat redundant). She loses her job when she can’t keep any customers on the phone (subtle message: fuck you if you ever hung up on a telemarketer). Just then a lawyer tells her she has inherited a huge house from a relative she didn’t know she had. She moves in and discovers a lab that contains numerous vials of a glowing red liquid. After drinking some she becomes a shape shifter (I swear I’m not making this up) and she manipulates her figure and becomes Jaqueline – a seductive, sexy version of Jackie who screws (literally and figuratively) a bunch of guys.
Why Mr. Krueger, what beautiful blue eyes you have.
This movie was pretty low-rent, but that’s not a deterrent. Just because a movie was shot on the cheap isn’t a reason to avoid it. There are times when the production value could have been better (at times the sound was flat or hollow – like there were no microphones near the actors) and some of the special effects are really cheesy. But, nothing that detracts from the overall movie.
As far as features go… it has a surprisingly large number of them. The producers definitely seemed to want to give the customer everything they had, so commentaries, deleted scenes, the trailer and photos are all included. There is also a Making Of documentary slapped on too.
“Why, yes! My breast are amazingly saggy! Thank you for noticing."
I put this movie in a similar category as Troma’s Tromeo and Juliet. It’s a low-budget horror flick with lots of skin, based on a classic story. You know, there aren’t enough cheap skin flicks based on classic literature. I’d love to read something like The Great Gatsby and realize there was a soft-core fest based on the same book that I could go rub one out to later in the evening. I think there’s a new sub-section of film waiting to be fulfilled here.
One problem I had with the film was suspending my disbelief in one scene. I was OK with the premise – drug turns woman into shape-shifter who wants to screw and kill. No problem. I can buy into that. But, before Jackie finds the formula, she does what any new-in-town horny girl does – she goes to a strip club to meet guys. Sure, OK, I guess I’ll even buy that. However, she can’t pick up one guy. NOT ONE. She has SCREW ME tattooed across her forehead and not one guy at a strip club is loaded and hard-up enough to stick it in her. That just doesn’t make sense.
That aside, I found the movie to be rather enjoyable, in a "So bad it is good" way. I cheered along as Jaqueline went crazy and started killing people and laughed at some of the acting and special effects. This movie probably isn’t for you if you are looking for straight scares. But, if you like a lot of humor (both planned and accidental) and some eroticism mixed with your chills, it’s worth a look.
Candy cigar, real intern, hi-jinks ensue.
