An abused woman
Jamie Garnes (Cara Jo Basser) leaves Los
Angeles to get away from her brutal
boyfriend Bobby (Eric Bishop) and heads
to Las Vegas and thinks that she was
closeted so she falls in love with a
stripper as a lesbian bar Brooke
(Monique Chachere) and gets a career as a
Bobby seems to still be fixated with
Jamie and has a sex operation and heads
to Las Vegas and kills her friends or
anyone associating with her during a
bunch of New Years Eve parties until that
they are reunited again.
impressive beginning with an abused woman
named Jamie Garnes trying to pack from
her abusive boyfriend Bobby with an
answering machine turning on with this
creep acting freaky which is impressive
to a beginning of a slasher flick which
will make anyone cringe who has
experiences this type of experience
There's a good shot zooming across with
dancing as well as many other good camera
takes on this.
Of course there's the first kill with
Bobby after having a sex change which
seems quite impressive at a railroad yard
but then a train runs over this vicitm as
you can tell this effect was very
computerised but don't forget that this
was an independent film so not many
people can afford to have a closed set
and hire someone driving a train.
There's nice impressions with Bobby
stalking Jamie at her new home as well as
at a strip club while he/now a she kills
other stripper to get to her which has a
nice traiditional slasher feel to all of
A nice but cheesy moment with
a woman acting
lustful in a room with good blocking
moments on her as well as a good dark
shot with a red light shining on Bobby talking low and freaky to her. Then some
nice moments with her sitting back on his
lap and taking off her top talking kinky
to him and a nice side shot on him
holding up a knife and plunging into her.
However alot of the story sinks with some
pointless moments at new years dance
clubs which seems a bit overly long and
not getting to alot of a point on this
while the murders keep happening but it
does seem to pick up later on with
surprise attacks with Bobby hiding and
then killing her next victim as well as a
moment where she is about to make out
with a guy only to kill him too.
A good camera shot looking into a
window with Jamie and then an
indoor shot on her with Bobby staring at her.
There's a nice circling shot on Brooke lying in a bath with her answering
the phone as well as good setting
discussions with her and Jamie acting nervous about a situation as well
as Brooke herself in the end acting
unimpressed and hanging up which seemed
pretty natural. There's a nice shot
looking up on a woman bending down in a bathtub
making out with Brooke which
looked lustful with all the close up
shots with this.
A cheesy discussion between Jamie and a nerd in a bar which looked
corny on how this moment was done.
There's some good intense flashback
sequences with abusive moments which
works incredibly well and making this
moment convincing for the storyline
showing what's happening afterwards.
There is good moments on Jamie confused
about her sexuality too and finally
denying that she's a lesbian and later on
finds out the sex change that Bobby had
which showed alot of creepy elements to
the plot giving the film a perfect horror
twist to this.
There's a good moment with a supporting character Casey Lewis slowly
poking her finger at another supporting character Justin Riley and speaking smoothly towards
him which almost seemed pretty deadly.
There's a nice camera shot zooming up on
both of them and getting
it on in a hottub which looked quite
lustful too on the two of them.
A good shot on Casey walking
up a staircase petting a cat with nice
shots on the cat walking away and her
following it. Plus a good shot on Bobby picking up a cork screw rising in the air
as well as her facing Casey and plunging
her in the breast with a good close up
There's a nice shot on Justin lying
in bed but his words acting kinky was
cheesy but then a good approach on Bobby entering the room speaking to him as
well as getting on top of him and pushing
his head down which looked impressive
that he was going to do something to him.
There's a good moment with Bobby entering a room and talking to Jamie with her trying to recognise him which
shows greats shots on each of them as
well as him removing his clothes to
reveal on what he did to himself. There's
a good moment on the flashback scene
with him getting demanding towards her
and slamming her head against a steering
wheel in their car which looked very
brutal and disturbing.
A good moment on him wandering
through a crowd of people with a band
performing as well as good tense shots on
him stabbing some people and the rest
fleeing which looked a bit corny.
There's a great shot on her running away
from him as well as good shots on her
behind a wall with a sharp kitchen knife
stabbing through near her face with a
great scared expression. There's also
nice close up shots on him trying to
charge at her.
There's a good menacing shot on her as
well by bringing out a chainsaw along
with good camera shots looking up on him
with blood splurting in his face.
Many of these moments
seems to borrow alot from Texas
Chainsaw Massacre and Halloween.
Plus this film seemed to also borrow
elements on The Crying Game.
Bottom line is this is a fun looking
indepdent horror film but it lacks in
some spots and what's a bit disappointing
is we all know who the killer is as in
most slasher films it's usually a secret
till close to the end of the story but
that's not a big deal. Check it out for
the fun of it but it's not the most
original horror film by any means which
shows alot of skin too.
Jo Basser (Jamie Garnes) seems to do
with with her troubled attitude trying to
carry on with her life showing a nice
natured attitude at the same time. She
also shows a good mellow tpye of behavior
in many scene's of the film. She also has
the nice sharp looks and descent behavior
too which works well adding a plus to her
work in the film. A
great scared expression when someone tries to stab her.
Eric Bishop (Bobby) portrayed a
perfect transsexual serial killer using
his deep feminen voice and evil
expressionless face when he is about to
kill his victim. He draws alot of great
intensity with his role and shows other
characterisitcs before he had a sex
operation as if he was a totally
different person alltogether. A
great reaction on him by challenging
someone to a fight which was performed nicely
in a good lesbian style fashion. I could see
him getting other work in independent
horror flicks playing other kinds of
Monique Chachere (Brooke) portrayed
a perfect lesbian in the film showing a
good charming and lustful attitude as
well as having a good butch behavior too.
She really knew on how to come across
very aggressively with her obnoxious
attitude when she doesn't like something
and portraying some good characterisitcs
with her role bringing out a ton of
energy to her performance.
There's a supporting role by Jennifer
Autry (Sylvia 'Bunny' Dane) who
seems to be a little too melodramatic as
a bisexual stripper in the flick buit
does okay by talking smoothly with her
lustful attitude. She wasn't much of a
character actress though.
scene's with strippers dancing in a strip
bar in many different moments of the
There's a lesbian dance scene in a bar
caressing one another
A stripper takes off her top while
sitting on the killer in a private booth
One of them is topless in a hottub too
along with her vagina exposed and walking
up some stairs while trying to pet a cat
A transexual exposes his body from top to
bottom even if it looks a bit dark
A woman's stomach
is stabbed as well as blood pouring out
of her mouth.
A knife is stabbed in the back along with
a slit throat
There's some other bloody stabbings with
a kitchen knife
A transsexual is sawed by a chainsaw with
blood splurintg out
clicking sounds as was as windy and
hissing moments with the scene's when the
killer is about to kill her victims.
There's also the high sounding keyboard
piano sounds too for a typical sound on a
slasher film. Not too much involving
interesting music for the film composed
by Thorn Arwood.
