Beautiful Naked Ladies and Blood...
Cannibal Hookers (1987)
** 1/2 (out of 4)
A couple young ladies want to pledge to a sorority but first they must make it past the initiation, which is them dressing up as hookers and walking the streets. Before long they end up at a bordello that appears to have a sinister thing going on.
Donald Farmer's CANNIBAL HOOKERS is the perfect example of the shot-on-video releases from the 1980s. If you weren't around for the VHS craze then you probably won't understand what it was like going into a video store every weekend and going through the racks looking at the latest releases. As a horror fan you'd notice that a lot of shot on video films were right there for you.
If you're looking for Oscar-winning acting, hard-hitting drama and a film that is going to change your life and lead you on a rewarding path then you're not going to find it here. THis film doesn't try to hide what it is and that's an extremely low-budget horror film that throws a lot of beautiful naked ladies, violence and blood at you.
The film is quite short, which works to its advantage since it allows you to get what you'd want from a film like it without the movie going on too long or getting watered down with a bunch of worthless dialogue scenes. As I said, people rented movies like CANNIBAL HOOKERS for the blood and nudity and both are presented here. CANNIBAL HOOKERS isn't a masterpiece of cinema but for what the movie is it kept me entertained.
