Savage Sisters (1974)
Starts like it's based on the Cuban revolution what with the revolutionary leader being named Ernesto (Work it out you t-shirt wearing hipsters!) and the government forces using M16s and receiving money from the US, which is way too serious - what the fuck's going on? Then we're into familiar exploitation territory when our heroines are locked up in a prison camp with female guards. Whew! What follows includes some light and hilarious S&M, a John Wayne Bobbitt moment, TV style Karate, sexploitation, casual racism, great dialogue and some really funny scenes.
There are several "what the fuck!" moments that had me in stitches and I loved Vic Diaz as One-Eye and, of course, Sid Haig hamming it up as Malavasi.
Thanks for the recommendation James.
