A murderer who wants to open a shoe store? What a loser., 8 March 2008
Author: ElijahCSkuggs from Happy Land, who lives in a Gumdrop House on Lolly Pop Lane

I knew it'd happen again one day, another poor CAT3 film came my way. With quotes such as The Chinese Texas Chainsaw Massacre, it's a movie you almost HAVE to see. Well, that ain't the case. Really, this is a completely passable CAT3 entry that is utterly a completely below average flick. And if you compare it to other classic CAT3's, it feels much worse.

The story is about a killer who takes the skin of his victims to make....duuhhh, High Heels. Well, neither the killings nor the high heels are very impressive. There are a few nice scenes involving some sleazy rape n sex, but besides those choice scenes, even the murders and death is almost yawn worthy. All actors involved are very forgettable, well besides the killer, he may fit in the "so bad it's good" category for acting. Everyone else is emotionless and just plain bad. The story itself sucks. Big surprise there! Combine crappy actors, weak writing and not enough of the "good stuff" the movie begins to become boring and feel uneventful.

Horrible High Heels isn't completely horrible, but it isn't even close to be worthy of being talked among some of the classic CAT3 flicks. Film such as Chinese Torture Chamber Story, Untold Story, Red to Kill, these are where it's at. If I were you, I'd pass on this and re-watch one of the classicks. But if you are like me and are in love with the CAT3 universe, then I suppose check it out. Just don't expect anything fantastic.
