Overview

Part of Fred Olen Ray's "Night Owl Theater" series, the 1988 sleazy horror flick Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers gets a DVD release from Retromedia Entertainment with a widescreen transfer and Dolby Digital Stereo sound. Special features include a making-of featurette, original theatrical trailer, and special introduction by Fred Olen Ray. This is a certainly adequate presentation for fans of exploitation.One of the few sleaze-horror movies that actually delivers on the lurid promise of its title (and what a title!), this trashy treasure from the irrepressible Fred Olen Ray also sports a classic exploitation cast, toplined by "Scream Queen" Linnea Quigley. Quigley plays a cute young runaway whose desperate dive into the Hollywood prostitution racket lands her smack in the middle of a demonic chainsaw death-cult, presided over by none other than Texas Chainsaw Massacre's "Leatherface," Gunnar Hansen. This deliberately over-the-top item makes no pretense about its primary mission -- the display of female nudity and severed body parts -- and comes through with flying colors, so to speak. Highlights include a decidedly un-subtle cross-dressing hooker, an Elvis-loving cultist who covers her movie posters with plastic before chainsawing her next john, a victim's-eye view of a chainsaw attack, and a body-painted Quigley performing the "Virgin Dance of the Double Chainsaws!"
