"Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives (2010)" Review

Synopsis: A group of transgender women are violently beaten and left for dead. After regaining their consciousness the violated vixens turn deadly divas and with their new-found confidence and courage, slice their way to vengeance.

Review: Coming from director Israel Luna and takes on the revenge film that's in the vein of 70's exploitation and adds a good dose of humor to the mix. Just by the title I already knew that this film was going to be fun and shouldn't be taken completely serious and trust me I had a ton of fun watching this film from start to finish. The humor mainly stick to sexual innuendos and the occasional scene that makes fun of old school blaxploitation and cheesy kung fu films. Which actually on of my favorite scenes in this film is when they make fun of the kung fu genre and a character by the name of  Fergus takes the 3 surviving women out to the middle of nowhere to train them to fight which has some of the funniest dialogue. The plot in this film is nothing new and follows a pretty basic revenge route ,but at the same time it does add a few new twists of it's own to the mix. Now when it comes to the cast they couldn't of picked a better bunch of ladies for the roles of the main characters, each one of them give a great performance weather they are in a serious situation or not. Personally my favorite character was Rachel Slurr because of her over-the-top acting and funny comebacks. One thing I must add is that there is alot of controversy surrounding this film which I will not get into in this review ,but let's just say that GLAAD is very stupid for protesting this film. Overall this is one of the coolest and most unique films to take on the exploitation genre that I have seen in the past few years and to me is bound to become a cult classic!
