The main character, Claudia is the only one attending school, and as the movie progresses we see her struggle with her relationship to a homicide detective and her dreams of getting into law school. The most annoying stripper is Star, a woman who seems to be scared at some points, but who continues to do things which put her in danger.
Star is the only character in the movie who I continually hoped would die. I disliked her so much, and really didn't see what the point of her character was, unless it was to annoy the audience.
This was not a perfect horror film by any means. It was poorly acted by some and well acted by others. Both Claudia and Molly were well rounded characters, although I would have liked a little more backstory to both of them since they seemed to have some similar life situations. Too much time was given to the bad behavior of Star, and the bumbling of the homicide detective.
As the movie ended I was interested in who the killer was, and while it did become quite obvious in the later scenes, the reasoning was interesting. The one huge problem I had with this movie was that is seemed as if it were to have a sequel. The killer disappears, and the audience is left waiting for a sequel, which I would have watched to see more development in both Claudia and Molly's characters. I also would have liked to know if Claudia went to law school, and what Molly did after, since I am sure she didn't go back to stripping after her experience.
This wasn't a bad movie, but some of the characters could have been cast better, or written better. The most interesting characters weren't developed as much as they could have been, and the sequel that should have been made never was, which is a shame. If a sequel had been made, more people might have seen it, and it could have become a cult classic like THE TOXIC AVENGER or other horrific slasher movies.
