Cast: Kei Mizutani, Nao Eguchi

Huh? Here's a very strange and extremely low budget video about a trio of strippers who kill someone and are trying to get rid of the body. They get stopped by a cop, so they kill him too. When a young girl sees them murder the cop, they go after her as well and learn that she's a slave to a crazy, crippled, rich man. They decide to let the girl live and plot to kill the old geezer for his fortune. And then almost everyone winds up dead. The story ends the same way it began, only with Harry (Kei Mizutani?) trying to get rid of seven bodies instead of one.

Pretty terrible on all accounts. The film was clearly inspired by Russ Meyer's classic "Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill!" (1965), but the execution is just awful. More than anything, it banks on the prospect of getting genre actresses Kei Mizutani and Nao Eguchi naked, which never actually happens. Thankfully, it's only 43 minutes long, but it leaves a lot of unanswered questions. Like why does this video exist in the first place and who thought it was a good idea? Easily forgettable trash.
