In an age where Hollywood can't seem to find any original ideas, we rely on the indie film makers of the world to deliver fresh ideas. Director Greg Lambertson (Dry Bones) does just that with his latest offering KILLER RACK. The film, written by co-star Paul McGinnis begins by introducing us to the self professed mad scientist Dr. Thulu (Debbie Rochon), who is determined to please the dark gods she worships. Along with her trusty side kick Nurse Herbie (Robert Bozek), she waits for the right woman to extract her evil plan to conquer the world. Enter, Betty (Jessica Zwolak) a flat chested girl in a big boob world. Poor Betty has a problem, she just can't catch a break with her boob-less figure. She has a low self esteem, a failing love life and a dead end job. Her only real friend is Tim (McGinnis) her co-worker secretly in love with her. As a last resort, Betty seeks the help of Dr. Thulu to remove a mole but, is talked into enhancing her bust size. Unwittingly, Betty has become Thulu's pawn, thus becoming the KILLER RACK. With her new hypnotizing boobs, Betty is taken over by the great boob dark lord and starts a killing spree. It's up to detectives Bartles and James to solve the case. Will they be able to figure out what is going on before the boob lord rules the world? Like the great Troma films, KILLER RACK relies on dark comedy and horror to tell it's story. KILLER RACK's humor varies from subtle to in your face. Lloyd Kaufman even has a cameo as a doctor with a boob fetish.
KILLER RACK is a cleverly written comedy/horror film that delivers something fresh. Jessica Zwolak was likable as poor Betty, Indie horror veteran Debbie Rochon was nefarious as Dr. Thulu, the whole cast was an ensemble of talent. You are guaranteed to have the theme song "FUN BAGS" stuck in your head for a very long time, I promise you that.
An IndiGoGo hit, KILLER RACK relied on fans to help co-fund the project. Thankfully they delivered, the end result is a humorous romp in a weird world. Killer Rack is making the festival rounds right now, if you get a chance to see it don't miss it.
