Cannibal Girls (1973)

Director: Ivan Reitman

Starring: Eugene Levy, Andrea Martin, Ronald Ulrich, Randall Carpenter

More info: IMDb

Tagline: These girlds do EXACTLY what you think they do!

Plot: A young couple spend the night in a restaurant, only to find out that it is haunted by three dead women who hunger for human flesh.

My rating: 4/10

Will I watch it again? No.

#66 on Dusk to Dawn Drive-In Trash-o-Rama Show Vol. 1 (part of the TRAILER TRASH PROJECT)

It's Ivan Reitman's second feature and it stars Eugene Levy & Andrea Martin, two funny as fuck people. It's also a horror/comedy. The comedy works (thanks to Levy & Martin) but the horror fails miserably. Levy & Martin are hilarious. You'd almost think the picture was written just for them. Too bad the whole thing wasn't. When they're not on screen, it's a by-the-numbers dull horror picture that has nothing new to add nor does it seem to care. I would recommend it if you're a fan of Levy & Martin. It really is worth watching just for the two of them. They work wonderfully together. I bet they were fuck buddies in real life. Yeah, that's what it was. They had chemistry.
