A Great Title and a Movie To Live Up to It
24 August 2017 | by See all my reviews

Hooker with a Hacksaw (2017)

*** (out of 4)

A young woman (Kasper Meltedhair) ends up working as a hooker and before long she is assaulted by a creep. Before long she's killing off men with a hacksaw and plans for revenge on the one who started all of it.

Donald Farmer's HOOKER WITH A HACKSAW is a film that has a wonderful title. I was lucky enough to go to the premiere of the film in Lexington, Kentucky and throughout the day I bragged about going to see the film. The title caught everyone's attention and I thought to myself that this was the perfect throwback to the days when a title sold a picture. With that said, more often than not the movies with great titles never lived up to them but thankfully that wasn't the case here as the film really did work as a throwback to the days when you'd rent movies like this on VHS.

For some reason whenever I write about movies like this I give a warning that one shouldn't expect CITIZEN KANE. I guess I should stop doing this because if you're dumb enough to watch a low-budget horror film called HOOKER WITH A HACKSAW expecting something that it isn't then that's on you. If you go in expecting a low-budget exploitation film with your typical revenge story that is spiced up by some interesting death scenes then you should enjoy it. I've watched hundreds of movies like this and of course there are budget limitations but I think there's a lot of quality stuff here.

For starters, the film is just barely over a hour and this works extremely well. So many times films like this get bogged down by their running time but that doesn't happen here. The story works well as it's basically a hooker going out for revenge and the film gives us some nice and fun gore effects. Again, often times these movies feature no effects but that's not the case here because there are decapitations, various slashings and one sequence that the director said horror fans hadn't seen before and he was right! The effects are a lot of fun and there's some pride taken with blood flowing down the lead actress.

I was also pleasantly happy with Meltedhair in the lead role. Obviously there's nothing here for a character study but I thought the actress perfectly fit the role. The character, a hooker, is obviously someone down on their luck and I thought the actress sold this quite well and you could look at her and feel as if you were really watching a character who would be off doing this stuff. She helped sell the film as did Farmer's music selections, which were quite interesting to say the least. I really thought the score helped push the film into some surreal moments. Linnea Quigley gets a "guest appearance" credit and her scenes were filmed a decade or more earlier on a film that never got completed. Lets just say her fans will be very happy as it's a rather raunchy sex scene with plenty of her on display. Be sure you stay through the end credits.

Fans of this type of horror movie should certainly gives this one a chance. It's certainly the best film I've seen from the director and I think it plays itself out quite well.
