Ellie and Myra are sisters. They live with their stepfather Charley. He's a vile bastard.
One night, Ellie comes home from work and catches Charley assaulting Myra. So she kills him.
Both of them head to the big city to see their maternal uncle Ben. He gives them food and shelter.
Uncle Ben gives Ellie a special task, that involves half a million dollars.
Ellie and Larry - a private detective her uncle hired - decide to run away with the money.
Unfortunately for them, her uncle's hit men are wise to their plan, and the shit hits the fan.....
Myra: "What's a matter step daddy?!.. Jealous?.. Afraid there ain't going to be any left for you?!.. You dirty old man!"
Ben: "Every time you tell me not to worry, I begin to worry"
Diana: "Rape me, dear husband... Rape me"
Ellie: "What's a matter, baby?.. Don't you want a little excitement in your life?"
Myra: "You're a dyke, a lesbian, a no-good queer!"

DO I WANT MY MONEY BACK?:
There's action, backstabbing, coldbloodedness, sleazy behavior, and murder.
I really loved watching this flick when I was a kid, and I still love it.
There have been many good FAUX grindhouse movies in recent years, but nothing beats the real thing!
Watch for an appearance by Sharon Gless, as a waitress. FYI: She was Mr. Marks secretary.
Also Max Showalter ( 1917 – 2000 ), has a small but significant role in this movie. I've never forgotten him, or his trademark laugh.
I loved watching him in NIAGARA, INDESTRUCTIBLE MAN,THE MONSTER THAT CHALLENGED THE WORLD, LORD LOVE A DUCK, and as the grandfather in SIXTEEN CANDLES.
I don't remember if this movie ever had a legit VHS release.
A region one DVD was released by DARK SKY.
The DARK SKY disc is housed in a transparent case. The cover is printed on both sides. The inside of the cover has a pin-up of Tiffany Bolling.
There are plenty of extras on the DVD.
There's only one thing that bothered me about this disc, some of the topless scenes are cropped. Especially Ms. Bolling's scene at her uncle's office building.
