Exploitation is Back: Soldiers of the Dead!


Some of my favorite films go back to the era of the grindhouse. Most of those films included heavy amounts of blood, gore and nudity. Well they had to contain heavy amounts of at least one of those three elements. Director Scotty JX plans on bringing those times back with his new film, Actiongirls: Soldiers of the Dead.

Amazingly he has managed to film the movie with a budget of $5 million dollars. Now I don't say that because I can't believe he could make it without that much but the fact that getting money to make these films is NOT easy. With that budget he was allowed time to shoot for 110 days which is unheard of when it comes to the exploitation/horror genre.

To get down to the nitty gritty of the story here is the official synopsis of the film: Based in the future, the world as we know it has been destroyed. Menacing gangs loot the cities searching for new members. The most notorious of the these gangs is known as Helman's Death Squad. Helman a female slave trader searches for female fighters to compete in his Arena of Death. Winners have a chance of escaping their slavery by leading by his side as his queen. Adriana Zarcova (dressed as nazi) Helman's most prized possession tires of her boyfriend's love affairs and decides to start her own organization when she accidentally stumbles upon secret government plans to create super soldiers of the undead. Adriana uses her newfound plan to to raise a super army of the Undead to crush her boyfriends most prized female fighters. Alone and outnumbered the Actiongirls must battle Zarcova'a growing army of dead soldiers in a fight to the finish.

Now he also has two versions of the trailer up as well.. One is for everyone who is at work or can't handle nudity which you can check out here. The other is for men like me who have hair on their chest! Check that bad boy out here.
