Cliche example of the “Women In Prison” genre, so bad it’s fun now. While it pushed the boundaries back in 1969, this schlocky film includes the requisite sadistic dykey warden, lesbian prison sex, and women-in-chains escape scene. Sexploitation cinema at its best. Makes a good dyke movie night drinking game – spot a straightboy fantasy [...]

Possibly the worst movie ever made, certainly the worst lesbian vampire movie ever made. Honestly, the best thing about this movie is the boxshot. This is so unbelievably bad it does not even qualify as funny Dykesploitation or Processed Cheese Food – it is simply indigestible, unwatchable crap. We include it here only to serve [...]

Self-absorbed rock opera about a self-absorbed singer who stalks her thieving, unjustly successful ex-boyfriend and triumphs in the end. Surprisingly good drag king turn by Miriam Shor (‘Swingtown’, ‘Damages’) as Yitzhak, the hapless bandmate hopelessly smitten with a Tommy-obsessed Hedwig.
Bad lesbian cinema attempts to explore post-feminist social politics. Poorly conceived and executed, but nonetheless popular with the younger crowd. Plot: young heartbroken lesbian joins a post-feminist micro-cell; vandalism, bickering, sex and more heartbreak ensue. Proof that the bar for lesbian cinema is low enough for a limbo contest. Watch it if you like youthful anger and rebellion, riot grrrl music or if you just need to see a slice of young lesbian life. Enthusiastically acted.
Modern dykesploitation straightboy fantasy, we have to say that overall, just pass on this turkey. Unless, of course, you want to see two hot, gorgeous actors getting very steamy. If you can put aside all cravings for plot, narrative, direction, originality, creativity or anything other than two hot actors getting steamy, then this is the [...]
Faster, Pussycat! Kill! Kill! No, it’s not that cult favorite, but you’ll be wishing it was when these two hokey ’script? we don’t need no stinkin’ script!’ excuses for stringing together a bunch of pseudo-lesbian scenes overheat your VCR. Another fun stinkeroo from the great golden era of 1969 dykesploitation flicks, “Kitten In A Cage [...]
Frederique is wealthy and bored. Why is a young starving artist who lets rich Frederique whisk her off to a lovely villa in St. Tropez. Once there, Why meets and falls in love with Paul, but Frederique wants what she wants, and finds a way to make it happen. A suspenseful and erotic 1968 classic.
Crafty, ruthless and charismatic Irma Vep is not a vampire in the classical sense, but she and her gang of jewel thieves are very much psychological bloodsuckers as they con, seduce and steal their way across the upper-crust landscape of Paris after WW1. An absorbing silent-era classic in serial form. A must for any serious [...]
Shot in a quasi-documentary style, Ho Yuk (Let’s Love Hong Kong) follows the lives of three lesbians in a near-future version of the bustling Asian port city. Chan works as a fetish stripper on an interactive website, Nicole is a businesswoman who gets her yayas watching Chan on her computer every night, and Zero is [...]
Forbidden love at a girls’ boarding school. This movie could have been a fun, intense fantasy of seduction, but instead settles for disjointed, boring and depressing. Loving Annabelle has its very strong supporters, so don’t take our word for it. Watch for yourself and then let us know what you think.

Processed cheese-food all the way. If this one sounds like a really bad softcore skinflick, it’s because it is a really bad softcore skinflick. But, (there is always a but), this one is so unbelievably bad, it’s funny, a complete riot after a couple of three or four beers. If Ed Wood had survived into [...]
Charlize Theron deserved the Oscar for her riveting portrayal of a highway prostitute discarded by society who turns serial killer. Based on the true story of Aileen Wournos, “Monster” shows the humanity beneath the monster and the casual monstrosity of a thoroughly broken human.
