Product Description

A lunatic with a grudge against g-strings, pasties, and pretty women is slaughtering the sexy strippers who work for strip club impresario Marzdone Mobilie (Henny Youngman). Not content with mere murder, the psycho enthusiastically mangles and mutilates the women, thus turning Marzdone's go go girls into The Gore Gore Girls. Trying to solve the gruesome goings-on are private eye Abraham Gentry (Frank Kress) and a dizzy reporter Nancy Weston (Amy Farrell). Burrowing through the underbelly of the sleaze-and-tease business, Abraham eventually offers the killer the perfect bait by coercing a drunken Nancy to perform in an amateur strip contest...


This movie has its great tone, it's very good!

4.0 out of 5 stars "Ghastly Beyond Belief!" is right! 22 Dec 2002
Another uncut release, after decades of unavailability in the UK, this was one of H. G. Lewis' last gore epics. The plot, set in and around a strip-club, concerns the string of murders of beautiful young girls....that's original! The acting is as terrible as ever, but in this case, the male/female lead duo pull off some entertaining performances, and both seem to be having fun, so it makes this one of Lewis' more watcheable films. But the scenes of murder on display here are worse than ever, with one girl's head being rubbed in a broken mirror, another's being held under boiling oil in a kitchen fryer, a hot iron is pressed into a face, and of course, the famous scene of a girl's nipples being cut off with scissors. Writing it down, it all sounds appalling, but on viewing, it actually strikes you as ridiculous, especially as the sickest moments are accompanied by rousing brass band music! Trust me, this has to be seen to be believed.
Other highlights are the hilarious scenes set in a strip club where the dozy strippers are interviewed in search of clues, while the strip routines themselves are jaw-droppingly bad, guaranteed to make you laugh, so if you can stomach the grosser than gross atrocities on display, you will not be disappointed. One last thing, all the Tartan DVD HG Lewis films come with the film trailer as an extra and this is definitely one of the funniest.

4.0 out of 5 stars Extreme gore...for laughs 4 Dec 2002
After decades of being banned, UK viewers can finally start seeing the blood drenched movies of H. G. Lewis, and he really goes all out in this film, one of his last gore epics. The plot, set in and around a strip-club, concerns the string of murders of beautiful young girls....that's original! But the scenes of murder on display here go way beyond the usual horror flick fayre, with one girl's head being held under boiling oil in a kitchen fryer, and another's being slammed into a broken mirror, We also get to see a hot iron being pressed into a face, and the famous scene of a girl's nipples being cut off with scissors. It all sounds appalling, but on viewing, it actually strikes you as ridiculous, which is something of a relief! The rest of the film concerns the "Keystone Cops" style hunt for the killer by a male-female partnership, which, for a change(as some non-gore scenes in many of Lewis' films are tedious beyond belief), is pretty entertaining on its own, as are the hilarious scenes where the dozy strippers are interviewed in search of clues. Incidentally, the Z-grade scenes of the girls actually performing strip shows in the club are absolutely priceless, and bound to bring the house down (with laughter) when watched. If you like a good turkey of a movie and can stomach the grosser than gross atrocities on display, you will be in for a trash treat.

5.0 out of 5 stars Zombies, pasties, and french fries, anyone? 3 Feb 2004
By Pamela Scarangello - Published on
Ladies and gentlemen! H.G. Lewis, the Godfather of Gore, proudly presents an amazing shockfest of striptease slaughter! Released in 1972, the "Gore Gore Girls," a stomach-churning and brain-twisting follow-up to Lewis's infamous "Wizard of Gore," is one of the first horror films ever to be rated X! While assembled upon a generous budget of $63,500, "The Gore Gore Girls" is a cult masterpiece of blood, black humor, and burlesque. With its smart dialogue, laughable acting, and plenty of bare exposure, this movie will entertain and nauseate even today's audiences. Best of all, despite the slightly crude subject matter, the overall content manages to stay risque without excessive raunch.
Actor Frank Kress adapts the role of Abraham Gentry, a snobbish and arrogant private eye who is offered $25,000 to investigate a series of gruesome murders. He's hired by an attractive Globe reporter named Nancy Weston (Amy Farrell), who will do anything for a scandalous story. Thinking that Nancy is merely a novice in solving crimes, Kress doesn't want anything to do with her, and he doesn't make that obvious just by whipping his cane around. Thanks to his charms, poor Nancy spends the entire second half of the movie drunk on zombies and tequila shots (not to mention the winner of an amateur strip contest). Still, the two manage to travel from one strip bar to another. Audiences will be given the pleasure of watching several voluptuous women in their tassels and pasties...up, close, and personal. Eventually, Abraham and Nancy gather enough clues to target four suspects:
Joseph - a shy student who was seduced and jilted by the killer's first victim, Suzy Creampuff.
Grout - a sadistic ex-marine who crushed and disfigured the faces of several Viet Cong soldiers.
Mary - a radical feminist who thinks that topless dancers are degrading to women.
Marlene - a fuming barmaid who was once a famous female wrestler, only to have her perfect figure horribly disfigured in a fire.
A lot of dark and sexual comedy is laced in the plotline. Viewers will especially enjoy how Abraham's bon mots test the patience of the Police Department's hotheaded Lieutenant. Not only does Abraham refuse to provide accurate information to the Lieutenant, but he even tricks him into thinking that the killer is a devout Christian! And, of course, let's not forget the outrageous stand-up comedy of Henny Youngman, who plays the ambitious club owner Marzdone Mobilie.
Meanwhile, the mysterious psychopath is killing the dancers one by one, slashing their throats and mangling their bodies beyond recognition. Like "The Wizard of Gore," this movie makes the art of mutilation the main attraction. Even before the opening credits appear, the murderer grabs Suzy Creampuff by the hair and smashes her face against a glass mirror! From there, each victim's demise gets more grisly than the last, and the seemingly cheap effects will make viewers cringe to this day. In the film's latter half, Lola, a ditzy lady with false eyelashes, is attacked by the unnamed psychopath, who then bludgeons her buttocks with a meat tenderizer! The final two murders are perhaps the grossest ones ever to be filmed. The sick assailant burns one woman's face with an iron. Then, he/she has the other victim's skin sizzled in a pot of cooking oil!
If you are a fan of H.G. Lewis's lurid legacy, "The Gore Gore Girls" is worth buying. But, it's not for the easily squeamish. In fact, once you see this movie, you will never want to eat french fries again!

5.0 out of 5 stars The most outrageous gore film ever made! 11 Feb 2005
By Alan Mora - Published on
This has got to be the most outrageous gore flick I have ever seen and by far the funniest. The gore effects in this movie are so outlandish that it is actually not frigthening at all but extremely humorous (for those of us with a taste for black humor). A movie like this could only have been created by the "Godfather of Gore" Herschell Gordon Lewis. Known for his mix of sex and extreme gore, Lewis out does himself in this one as Go-Go girls at a nightclub are hacked to pieces one by one. A hot iron is used to melt the face of one helpless victim, another has her face fried in french fry oil, still another has her rear end turned into hamburger meat and of course the infamous scene where a girl has her nipples cut off (the left bossom spews out whole milk while the right spews out chocolate milk!). Faces are mutilated, eyeballs are squished, and even the killer appears to have a dark sense of humor (a lit cigarette is found between the toes of one dead girl and the word "OK" is written on her leg in blood). There is even a cameo by the "King of the one-liners" Henny Youngman (who denies ever having been in this film to this day). After making this film, Lewis retired from the film making business and went on to become a successful investor. That is untill 2002 when he is coaxed back into the director's chair for "Blood Feast 2: All you can eat". Gorehounds will LOVE this flick...most others will be repulsed by it but then again, that is the point of the movie.

5.0 out of 5 stars DEATH BY FRENCH FRY! More at eleven... 7 May 2009
By Pamela Beam - Published on
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is my first and, so far, only Herschell Gordon Lewis movie I've ever seen, much less put in my DVD collection. I must say that, as a connoisseur of fine cheeses, this one is quite delectable.

Being the last film made by Mr. Lewis in 1972, it's mainly tongue-in-cheek, while you can keep one in your head. But don't worry; if you're not an early-seventies stripper working in Chicago, you're safe. With names such as Suzie Creampuff, Candy Cane, and Lola Prize, these groovy go-go gals weren't being very modest, which kind of made them large targets for this particular killer.

Right off the bat, I must strongly agree as to how much Frank Kress, who played the hero, Abraham Gentry, private investigator par excellence (as he so modestly announces every five minutes), resembles Allan Arbus, who appeared several times in M*A*S*H as Dr. Sidney Freeman, psychiatrist. His character is kind of a throwback to the thirties. I was oh-so-slightly projecting Nick Charles' picky, arrogant, yet nattily-attired and gentlemanly nephew onto Mr. Gentry.

Said Mr. Gentry is wooed into helping Nancy Weston, girl-cub-reporter, to solve the case of the Chicago Stripper Killer And Creative Mutilator. There's a "spirited" mob scene in one of the clubs, meaning that they all looked to be three sheets to the wind at the time. Strippers are dispatched, french fries, cucumbers and chocolate milk are served, and the sleazy food chain is established. A few hangover-free Zombies later, Miss Fancy Nancy finds herself entered into a stripping contest hosted by the owner of the local strip joints, Marzdone Mobilie, played by Henny Youngman (!). I must admit, Henny did a good job in this. Later he chose to absolve himself of ever appearing in this film. Such a pity.

One of my favorite parts of this DVD is Something Weird's promo of some of their other juicy celluloid tidbits. It had me cracking a wide smile the first time I saw it. It also reminded me of John Waters' Serial Mom, the scene where one of its characters is watching a Chesty Morgan movie. Plus, there's a clip from a movie featuring some wild women and a most hapless blond guy who's about to spill his guts to them.

If you never thought you'd meet a stripper talented enough to work to Strauss' Radetzky March or My Old Kentucky Home, this movie will set you straight, pickle!

Okay, having said all that, I have one the very beginning of the movie, where the Hell did Mr. Gentry put his pretty black cat? Was that a cat door? I hope it was.

3.0 out of 5 stars GOREY GOSH!! 8 Oct 2002
By BD Ashley - Published on
Herschell G Lewis is one sick puppy!! Anyone who has seen any of his gore movies will realize I mean this as very high praise. Many thought this would be his last movie, but thankfully he's come back recently with a sequel to BLOOD FEAST (which isn't available in NZ to my knowledge). GORE GORE GIRLS sees Lewis going into overdrive, the humor is blacker than before; the gruesome sequences are repulsive and of course there are endless sequences of go-go girls shaking their groove thangs to campy, bizzare jazz music composed by none other than Mr Lewis, under the name Sheldon Seymour. The plot (what there is of it) revolves around a detective and a reporter investigating the violent deaths of strippers at a night club. We are subjected to hilarious sequences of feminists picketing the club (one placard says LEWD IS CRUDE)and awful dialogue ("I'll tell you one thing, this murderer sure isn't weak" and "You're resting your foot on my crutch"). The stripping sequences themselves are more embaressing than titillating, but Mr Lewis outdoes himself in scenes featuring an iron, a deep fryer and demonstrates a novel way of dispensing chocolate milk. And how could you forget the meat tenderiser scene, the movie's pièce de rèsistance? All these grim delights make up for the movie's flagging bits. (And that goes for some of the strippers too). When you watch GORE GORE GIRLS there is no doubt you are watching cheap garbage, but the difference is this is cheap garbage made by a marketing genius. So grab a nice rare rump steak and a big glass of chocolate milk and sit yourself down in front of the box for what could well be the most gruesome eighty minutes of your life.
This is only the third Lewis movie I've seen after BLOOD FEAST and GRUESOME TWOSOME. I just hope our censors let more through. Gore fans shouldn't be denied these movies. They're part of horror history.

1.0 out of 5 stars Banned in Australia? 20 April 2008
By Mr. Luke Hutchinson - Published on
This film has been banned in Australia and will not have a dvd release. How the censorship board could find a badly made horror film from 1972, too graphic for public consumption is confusing. This film plays more like a comedy because of the bad production values (yes gore also), why is this unavailable to adults? Yes, there is violence against women, but have the censors seen the brutal violence on display in "Irreversible"? Have they released the dvd? Yes!
What is happening to our freedom of choice?
