Description: Aspiring strippers get drugged and held for impending sale into white slavery in Botswana. Whadaya need, a road map?
Two young exotic dancers think they’re about to get their big break in show business when they land a job in the hottest strip bar in town. However, their excitement soon turns to terror when they wind up as pawns in a savage and brutal international white slavery ring. It’s up to their boyfriends to save them, except one of them is running the whole operation.
Hoo boy, sit back and drink in this rancid little fucker! WHERE EVIL LIES has a fair bit of polish for a mid-’90s direct-to-video “erotic thriller,” with a female cast whose pneumatic assets belies a surprising amount of actorly credibility. Which only makes the fact that it’s a sick-fuck movie made for sick fucks all the more amusing. His film may have that glossy ’90s sheen familiar to any devotee of Cinemax After Dark, but Kevin Albin’s soul is stuck in the nasty-ass ’70s, and God bless him for it. There’s nudity, imprisonment, mutilation, dismemberment, blow jobs gone bad and more silicon than a truckload of computer chips, all cast about with maximum sleaziness. Is it good? Not really. Is it entertaining? Fuck yes.
Review: Son of a wealthy criminal, helps his father in the white slave trade. He sends in a night club strip “Tiger” pretty girls to work at the pole, and there they poured in alcohol and sleeping pills are sent to customers. Each villain, whose wife also sent to this address, exposing villains and frees unfortunate girls.
