Ladies of the night with gardening equipment has never felt so right.

Staring : Gunnar Hansen,Linnea Quigley, and Jay Richardson

Directed by
Fred Olen Ray

IMDB Plot Summary: Jack Chandler is a private eye tracking down Samantha the runaway. In his travels, he comes across a gang of chainsaw wielding prostitutes that like to carve people up for their cult.

This is the kind of movie that we just don't get anymore. Yeah, you get your skin flicks, and your super cheap blockbuster horror rentals (of which Jay Richardson and Linnea Quigley have stared in frequently) , but they don't have the same charm as a Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers. It's pretty easy to understand when you see this little warning at the start of the film. This movie had it all, nudity, the allure of Hollywood, nudity, the religious significance of the chainsaw, nudity, and of course, hookers galore (and nudity). Ok, so this movie is obviously a piece of shit. But it's a piece of shit with a likeable attitude. it went about its mediocrity with a wink and a smile, And that helps the medicine go down smoothly. So many movies of this type put out today are so "oh here is a spoof of planet of the apes called Play Mate of the Apes and it's nothing but terrifying lesbian sex scenes". No, that's not how you do it. I want my awful story, I want my ancient Egyptian cult of the chainsaw lead by the guy who played Leatherface. I want my shitty film noir attempt, and yes God damn it, I want hookers with chainsaws!
