Blood Orgy of the Leather Girls (1988) is a gory, low-budget, independent B-movie made in the classic "sexploitation" style. The movie focuses on the efforts of four very different women looking for revenge on men who have mistreated them.

Plot

The entirety of the film is narrated by a detective, Joe Morton, who has "been working for the Greater Plantsville Police Department for 30 years."

We are introduced to the main characters in the film as they prepare for school one morning. Sarah, the leader of the gang, is a Hitler-idolizing, iron cross wearing, society- and life-hating Jewish teenager. Rawhide, naïve and innocent, admires John Wayne. Fleabrain is a strong and dopey girl. Dorothea is the fourth member.

The girls drink alcohol, briefly visit and then cut from their classes at the St. Jerome's School for Girls, terrorize a series of males in the town, and return to the school for an "afternoon tea dance." The band performing at the dance is David Nudelman and the Wild Breed. At the dance, Dorothea is found collapsed on the floor, and the remaining three girls spend the rest of the film hunting down and enacting their revenge on the perpetrators.

Production

'Blood Orgy of the Leather Girls' was filmed during the 1980s in California, where the Lucases and David Nudelman lived.

The production was plagued with difficulties and debt. Director Meredith Lucas was unable to find distribution for the film and, having no way to reconcile her debts, committed suicide. Her brother, Michael A. Lucas, eventually was able to distribute the film in 1988. He wrote on the back of the box, "This belated release is humbly dedicated to her memory." As of May 2009, only a VHS release of this film has been made. No plans to release it on DVD have been stated.

All this is fake. The movie was actually directed by Jon Jost.

Soundtrack

An official soundtrack is available on San Francisco record label Planet Pimp Records. The back cover of the album features a eulogy from Michael A. Lucas to his sister, Meredith.

Critical Reception

One review calls it "relentlessly sardonic" while another rates it as "more serious than its mock title implies." The University at Buffalo (SUNY Buffalo) includes the film in the movie listing section of its "Women and Society" internet project.
