A gang of female bikers - the Cycle sluts - stops at a typical
American smalltown in order to get some food & some men. At the same
time, a bunch of flesheating zombies developed by mad scientist Willum
(Don Calfa), break out & a bus with blind orphans is stranded
nearby. The Sluts turn out to be real do-gooders, too, when they finally
meet the zombies, saving a baby from a fire, helping the blind orphans
& even agreeing to help the townsfolks who a mere minutes ago wanted
to lynch them. Only the gang's leader Rox (Catherine Carlen) does not
want to help out & rides off, but has a sudden change of heart when
Dede (Jamie Rose) saves her life nevertheless. So its the chicks vs. the
zombies with the chicks - with the help of the blind orphans & Bob
(Eric Gale), Willum's dwarf assistant who gives them some pointers -
having the upper hand until Willum provides the zombies with weapons.
But just in time, the chicks find some dynamite & come up with a
plan to lure all the zombies into the church & then blow it up. It
works, of course.
Billy Bob Thornton has only a small role as Dede's
former fiance, soon falling victim to the zombies.
combination of female bikers, zombies, blind orphans, a mad scientist
& a church blown up should make a good movies, not to speak of a
combination of them all ... But directos Dan Hoskins relies solely on
the strengths of these premises & does nothing to make them work -
his direction is so soulless in fact you don't even know if you're in a
horror-film, a comedy, both of them or neither of them. & as for the
cycle sluts, they don't seem like wild bikers at all but mislead girls
all looking for men to finally make them proper housewives, & are
do-gooders to a point when yozu have to throw up. The operetta-style
theme-music of the zombies is pretty funny though.
