TIFF 2009 MUST SEE LIST: Bitch Slap
#8 Bitch Slap
Directed by Tick Jacobson
A post-modern, thinking man’s throwback to the ‘B’ Movie/Exploitation films of the 1950s-70s as well as a loving, sly parody of the same, Bitch Slap stars Julia Voth, Erin Cummings, America Olivo and Michael Hurst, with cameos by Lucy Lawless, Kevin Sorbo, and Renée O’Connor. Director Rick Jacobson cleverly delivers nods to the down-and-dirty sexploitation classics, with this tongue and cheek, hard and hitting thrill ride, that is guaranteed to please its audience.
