Showgirl Murders

Comparison:

  • R-Rated
  • Unrated
Release: Mar 25, 2018 - Author: brainbug1602 - Translator: Tony Montana - external link: IMDB
Compared are the R-Rated Version (US DVD by New Concorde) and the Unrated Version (German DVD by Screen Power/EuroVideo).

Mitch and his alcolholic wife Carolyn run a bar but they barely make a living. One day, sexy Jessica shows up. She starts as waitress but it does not take long and she dances on stage. The bar becomes a strip club with Jessica as main act and Mitch makes lots of dough. He falls in love with Jessica who then suggests to take out Carolyn. Since Mitch is only thinking with his penis, he gets stuck deeper in Jessica's web of lies and schemes.

The movie contains a lot of striptease scenes with Maria Ford and a rather simple-minded thriller plot in between. Most impressive is Maria Ford's talent as dancer though. But other than that, one should not have an aversion of watching trash flicks. Otherwise, Showgirl Murders is not recommendable at all.

Unfortunately, the US DVD by New Concorde (Maria Ford Collection) only contains the R-Rated Version which lacks almost any detail of the strip scenes resp. there is some alternate footage as well. In addition to that, the knife attack on Carolyn is a few secnds shorter. All in all, the US DVD simply sucks.
