Storyline

The Landers sister star as twin sisters (obviously) in this oddly disturbing film. The girls, who are budding performers, are booked for a club date, which quickly turns into a nightmare. Brutally gang raped, they get no satisfaction from the police, so they carry out their own brand of justice. Written by Fryingham

Deadly dull; little-seen with good reason
14 October 2004 | by FieCrierSee all my reviews

Pretty poor movie that was shot on video (perhaps for foreign television?). Two sisters move from New York City to Germany to further their joint singing career. Meanwhile, a man and his friends are collecting protection money and committing robberies. One of the sisters becomes pregnant, and their manager isn't happy, but they feel they'll do OK. The four robbers happen to notice the sisters, and assault and rape them in a parking garage (very little of the assault and none of the rape is shown).

The sisters are hospitalized, and the pregnant one had a miscarriage, and makes an unsuccessful suicide attempt that knocks her legs out of commission. All of this occurs quite early in the movie. They're able to give the police enough information to identify their attackers, but the police are unable to do anything. The sisters devise a plan to get revenge, but early on it starts going awry.

Despite being shot on video, there had to have been something of a budget for this movie. Several cars get badly wrecked, there's explosions, helicopters, a train, chase scenes.... However, the acting is pretty unexceptional, and the dubbing isn't particularly good either.

There are some oddly funny moments. Two cops run all over a series of abandoned buildings looking for one of the rapists. They jump all over the place, and one of them at one point bursts through the tiles of a roof in order to jump on top of the building. At another point, a young child is held hostage at gunpoint. The kid is completely unconcerned, and when the abductor makes the cops drop their pants, the kid smiles widely. Odd!

The movie's end seemed hastily done. There's a voice-over, updating us on what happened, and a few short shots illustrating some of those things.

The copy I saw lacks end credits; there are only a few in the beginning, poorly applied. Curiously, a shot of the NYC skyline lingers for several minutes while music plays. Perhaps credits had been left out when given to the English-language distributor, so English credits could be placed over this sequence, and the distributor failed to do it.
