Hells yes! More excited for this story I could hardly be. Why? As if I needed much more than a title of BITCH SLAP, we’ve got a sleazy ass exploitation send up featuring a gang of smoldering girlies looking to get their party on. What kind of party? A sordid diamond heist, a barrage of wicked gunplay, and a whole lot of stripping down to their skivvies (which you can see in the below).
BITCH SLAP is a post-modern, thinking man’s throwback to the “B” Movie/Exploitation films of the 1950’s - 70’s as well as a loving, sly parody of the same.
At its core, BITCH SLAP follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort and steal $200 Million in diamonds from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive for the score, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and they are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected… themselves. It’s the ultimate morality tale as, one by one, they realize the whole she-bang was a set-up and one of them may not even be human.
What also makes BITCH SLAP different is a complicated “B” story device that runs throughout the film to illuminate character, backstory and relationship histories not previously revealed. Like the film MEMENTO, these scene flashbacks take place in reverse, so by the end of the film, you have a wholly different take on who these women are and why they are behaving so badly.
Seriously, how can you not be in love with this picture. And we haven’t even gotten to the hotties comprising the cast. We’ve got Julia Voth, Erin Cummings and America Olivo as the troika in question, with everyone from Kevin Sorbo to Lucy Lawless rockin’ cameos.
