Various clips and images for Rick Jacobson’s cleavage-heavy B-movie homage “Bitch Slap” have been circulating for over a year now, a number of which have appeared on this very site. However, yesterday several trailer-centric websites debuted a slightly retooled promo for the upcoming “Sin City”-esque actioner, leading me to believe that the picture may, in fact, be creeping closer to a release date. If you’ve already seen some of the older trailers floating around the ‘net, chances are this isn’t going to show you anything you haven’t already seen. The rest of you are in for a serious treat.
Here’s all you need to know:
“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 same. Inspired by the likes of “Dragstrip Girls,” “Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill,” “Kung Fu Nun” and the pantheon of Blacksploitation films, “Bitch Slap” mixes hot girls, fast cars, big guns, nasty tongues, outrageous action and jaw-dropping eye candy with a message… don’t be naughty!
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 massive booty 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 the film’s characters may not even be human.
Excited? You should be. The latest trailer lies below.
