Blood Orgy; Gore Gore Girls, The

2995. BLOOD ORGY (The Gore-Gore Girls) (1972-USA) COLOR. With HENNY YOUNGMAN. Produced and directed by HERSCHELL GORDON LEWIS. The legendary Mr. Lewis is famed for his low-rent chillers which are crammed with non-stop sex and thoroughly gruesome gore. He is in top form in this murder mystery which opens with the graphically depicted killing of a sexy “striptease artist” named Susie Creampuff. In the tongue-in-cheek story which follows, newspaperwoman Nancy Weston hires dapper detective Abe Gentry to look into the stripper’s death. Her paper will pay the gumshoe $25,000 now and the same amount upon his solving the crime. Gentry begins his assignment by visiting the strip club where Susie worked. He and Nancy then attempt to roust out the various individuals involved in the deceased’s life. They have barely started their investigation when another stripper, this one named Candy Kane, is also murdered in the most ghastly manner. Will Gentry be able to unmask her and Susie’s fiendishly sadistic killer before every last stripper is transformed into raw meat? There is plenty of in-your-face nudity as various strippers peel down to their pasties-and beyond. The creativity Lewis employs to devise his blood-and-gore murder sequences is nothing short of extraordinary. If all of this is not enough to whet your appetite, comedian Henny Youngman makes a cameo appearance as an overwrought strip club owner. Waiting around for him to crack his first wife joke is alone worth the price of admission. Take my movie…please! 84 minutes Splatter
