This is a gory, fairly enjoyable low-budget slasher movie about two sisters, Jackie (J.J. North) and Jane (Theresa Lynn), who are prematurely released from a mental hospital. They were gang-raped as teenagers, and their other sister Janice was murdered. The trauma has left the women as vicious serial killers who murder college boys in a small town, keeping their manhoods in jars in the kitchen cupboard. The murders are well-handled and extremely bloody, so gorehounds should be pleased. The humorous touches, including the bondage games played by the sisters' kinky neighbors, don't come off as well, and the scenes with Janice's ghost are fumbled and unclear. In the world of direct-to-video horror, however, one must be thankful for small things, like the engaging characters and some clever moments. Fans of bargain-basement splatter should check it out.
