It was late on Friday night and I couldn’t sleep. I was leaving on a trip the next day and I really needed to get some rest. Unfortunately for me, the flu had me in a headlock and would not let me go. So there I was, on death’s door, coughing and sneezing my guts out. I needed something to get me through my darkest hour. If I couldn’t live through the night, I needed my last hours on Earth to be as pleasant as possible. It was this frame of mind which led me to putting “Bikini Bloodbath” into the DVD player. Let the bloodbath take me away.

A bunch of women decide to hold a slumber party to celebrate the end of school. Debbie Rochon shows up long enough to die in the first twenty minutes. Meanwhile, an insane guy in a chef’s hat wants to fillet everybody he sees. He ends up at the girl’s party and kills, kills, kills. Somewhere along the way, the girls decide to put bikini’s on so that they can add some legitimacy to the movie’s title. More asinine things happened as I wrapped myself in a blanket trying to fight back death and run of the mill B-flicks.

“Bikini Bloodbath” is a goofy B-flick. It starts off with a topless woman hopping out of bed to some cheesy rock music and rolls from there. There is a nice scene in the girl’s shower as they lather up for our viewing pleasure. Once the chef slasher enters the picture the movie becomes fairly ridiculous. Rochon bites the dust early which leaves us with a bunch of actors who are there only to get chopped up as soon as possible. The kill scenes are not scary and the gore was not the bloodbath that I was hoping for. Everything here is done for laughs but since I was knocking on heaven’s door when I watched this it didn’t really work for me.

Overall, “Bikini Bloodbath” was not the over the top sleaze fest that I was praying for. It’s a fair B-flick with a juvenile sense of humor and lots of cheap blood. Not quite a blood bath, but the usual slicing and dicing for the undiscerning viewer. As for me, I went straight to bed after this was over hoping I’d live to see the dawn. When the sun came up, I was thankful that I got another chance to see more B-movies. I won’t be seeing “Bikini Bloodbath” again, but I’m sure it will be something very, very similar.

SCORE: 2 out of 4 bikinis

Juvenile sense of humor and lots of cheap blood? I couldn't agree more. I only wish we thought of that line for the cover box!

Thanks Bruce, I am feeling a little better. I've been drinking lots of orange juice. I want to live to see more B-movie carnage. But don't we all?
