Audience Member Well ladies find out what the real world has in store! That's secrets, greed, sex and murder--Gold Star Canuxploitation!! Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member A fun sleazy little slasher set in and around a strip club, well worth a look for fans of the lower end of the horror spectrum. Rental. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/07/23 Full Review Audience Member Don't let the title fool you, this is a Canadian film and a bad one at that despite appearances from Tom Harvey and Michael Ironside. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/13/23 Full Review Audience Member i loved this as a kid and i still love it to this day Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Good enough for a free rental...I was looking for a cheesy horror movie and got it. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 02/02/23 Full Review Audience Member A pretty good bad movie. It's actually a rather unique sleazy slasher. Produced by Ray Sager, a regular actor/crew member of H.G. Lewis, and executive produced by Paul Lynch (director of Prom Night (1980)). This is a relic of a great time in North American film (it's Canadian) and should be appreciated for what it is, and enjoyed in the company of many, cause there's plenty to laugh, cheer, and jeer about, as well it will help you get through the slower parts.
