The Killing Club

"Weak"

The Killing Club Review


Somewhat clever yet pretty damn obvious, The Killing Club is about as dead-on a title as they get. The film stars Ed hottie Julie Bowen and porn legend Traci Lords as buddies who accidentally murder Julie's boyfriend and decide, hey, why not murder "the bad guys" for the betterment of humanity?

Cute, but derivative, though the leads seem to be having plenty of fun (and the guys they off are such total pricks it's hard not to laugh). Ultimately this is a trifle worth a peek, but I lost interest when the girls started to plan to murder a fat, necrophiliac coroner. The ending is pretty darn stupid, too, with Lords' character being left behind at a factory while Bowen escapes in her car... as if Traci doesn't know how to get a ride and hunt down that skinny bitch!

Whatever!

Aka You're Killing Me...
