Burlesque Massacre breaks out, website breaks record again.
Last February 2011 we released our retro 70s horror/exploitation film "Burlesque Massacre" on DVD and VOD. Over the past year instead of losing sales over time like most releases, 'Burlesque' actually picked up sales and VOD rentals each month. Last month and this month were the highest DVD sales ever for the film and awareness got even higher when the films awareness shot up 8000% on the IMDB. While the IMDB star ranking for the movie has obviously been mixed (Burlesque Massacre is a VERY odd, bizarrely retro film that is NOT for everyone) but, most who actually took the time to review the film have given it high marks for what it is.... whatever that may be.
Our favorite review for the film was posted back when it first came out by a Amazon member named "Explorator" who has over 90 reviews for all sorts of films. Check out the review below.
IT'S EXACTLY WHAT YOU THINK IT IS!
"This ultra low budget flick is one that wears its campy style on its sleazy sleeve and is actually a lot fun if you're a fan of B-movie horror. There's LOTS of hot chicks (yes, there is also ample amounts of nudity and several softcore sex scenes), lots of tattoos on some of the girls, a decent amount of bloody kills, several creepy strangulation scenes, an emphasis on kinky imagery / bondage and 'edgy' style Burlesque dancing. The slightly grainy 'film effect' and old style 'film color' adjustments along with the authentic sounding retro music in the background achieves an effect similar to that of a 70s grindhouse movie (almost) and is much better of an effect than you usually see in movies that try it. The script is OK and isn't annoying like so many no-budget horror movies tend to be. The actors talk like real people for the most part and don't sound like they are reading directly from a script. I was never bored or felt the need to fast forward any scenes (which is rare with these kinds of movies). I don't want to give away anything by describing the storyline or kills as they are sometimes surprising and should be watched with no prior knowledge of what is going to happen. Overall this is a fun and entertaining B-Movie that is exactly what I thought it would and should be. Check it out if you like these types of movies. You probably won't be disappointed."
We feel this review hits the movie right on the head. It's just a whole lot of fun, that doesn't take itself too seriously. While it has a few things going on underneath at a slightly twisted level for those who want to dig deeper.. for the most part its just a retro exploitation film that was designed to capture a type of film not made anymore.
