Review by

Virgins From Hell has all the makings of a classic B-movie, and yet it manages to fall flat. The first problem is that despite plenty of action scenes and an amusingly sleazy plot concept, it is surprisingly dull. The performances are hammy or nondescript, and the direction is rather limp. Also, the action, though plentiful, is ineptly staged: the many fight scenes are choreographed and enacted in a way that suggests elementary school play-fighting instead of a gritty, convincing action sequence. As a result, it is tough to get into Virgins From Hell, even on a B-movie level. There are some amusing elements in the film -- the garishly colorful costumes the heroines wear are an eyeful and the decor in the villain's mansion is hilariously ugly -- but such elements can't make up for the film's lack of energy and inspiration. In short, even hardcore trash fans might want to give Virgins From Hell a pass.
