Plot / Synopsis
Bitch Slap is a post-modern, thinking man's throwback to the "B" Movie/Exploitation films of the 1950's - 70's as well as a loving, sly parody of the same. Inspired by the likes of "Dragstrip Girl"; "Faster Pussycat, Kill, Kill"; "Kung Fu Nun" and the pantheon of Blaxploitation films, "Bitch Slap" will mix girls, guns, outrageous action and jaw-dropping visuals with a message... don't be naughty!
At its core, Bitch Slap follows three bad girls (a down-and-out stripper, a drug-running killer and a corporate powerbroker) as they arrive at a remote desert hideaway to extort and steal $200 Million in diamonds from a ruthless underworld kingpin. Things quickly spin out of control as allegiances change, truths are revealed, other criminals arrive for the score, the fate of the world hangs in the balance and they are forced to confront a villain much worse than they ever expected... themselves. It's the ultimate morality tale as, one by one, they realize the whole she-bang was a set-up and one of them may not even be human...
What also makes Bitch Slap different is a complicated "B" story device that runs throughout the film to illuminate character, backstory and relationship histories not previously revealed. Like the film "Memento," these scene flashbacks take place in reverse, so by the end of the film, you have a wholly different take on who these women are and why they are behaving so badly. Bet you never saw THAT in "Jailbait Babysitter"!
So grab your popcorn and fasten your safety belt. With "Cult Classic" written all over it, "Bitch Slap" is gonna be one wild ride...
