A woman (Debbie D) is tied up in some basement helplessly and stripped
toher panties - so of course, it doesn't take long for a member of the
D.O.L.L. Squad (Violetta Storms), a team of superheroines, to show up. In
an unexpected turn of events though, the tied up woman frees herself,
kills her tormentor, then steals the superpowers and kills her ... because
you know, the woman was no other than the Dark Witch, who has been paid by
a syndicate of baddies to get rid of the D.O.L.L. Squad altogether.
another member of the D.O.L.L. Squad, Ravenwing (Tracey Lixx), shows up at the Dark
Witch's doorstep to come looking for her colleague - but she finds death
instead, handed out by the Dark Witch, but not before a nice round of
Next on the dark Witch's list is Firebrand (Laura Giglio), a
woman whom the Dark Witch tried to kill even before Firebrand had
superpowers, and who in a later fight banished the Dark Witch to the Dark
Dimension, an inhospitable world filled with giant spiders, dinosaurs and
the like, for three years. This time around though, the Dark Witch manages
to steal Firebreath's superpowers, then she ties up and dortures her
before killing her as well. Now all that stands between her and having
erradicated the entire D.O.L.L. Squad is killing the teamleader Topaz -
but that's a story for another day ...
A superheroine-movie made
on a shoestring - so don't expect any first-rate special effects and tons
of explosions ... in fact, the special effects in this film are all very
basic and hardly convincing, and probably the movie could have done with a
few thousand extra dollars to fix that (probably much more money that the
whole thing cost to make, acutally).
That all said, if you can overlook
certain shortcomings in the effects-department, the film is anything but a
disappointment but rather an enjoyable hommage to movie serials of old and
a throwback to the times when a superheroine-movie was just that, a story
about supergirls doing superthings and having superfights - there are no
forced upon psychological undercurrents here, the girls have no
self-reflexive traits, and there is no endless barrage of explosions to
distract from the simple story.
Nope, this film just tells its story, very
much aware of its simplicity and always tongue in cheek (like featuring
the Dark Witch actually riding a broomstick) - but hey, this is
about sexy girls in campy costumes (with several of them getting
topless, too) fighting it out with a witch on a broomstick, so the whole thing
just can't be disappointing,
And it isn't, too.
