Movie Review: Run! Bitch Run! (2009)

Directed by Joseph Guzman

Starring Ivet Corvea, Cheryl Lyone and John Crow

Catherine and Rebecca are two Catholic school girls going door to door selling bibles to pay for their education. They make the unfortunate mistake of wandering into the sleazy town of Moseley, where they accidentally witness the murder of a prostitute by her pimp, a drug crazed biker named Lobo.

Buy Run! Bitch Run! on DVD

After Rebecca is murdered, being forced to play Russian roulette, Catherine is taken to the woods by Lobo, his stammering half-witted side-kick and his psychopathic girlfriend, where she is forced to play a game called hide & fuck. Lobo~ “Thats where I untie you, you run, I catch you.....and then I fuck you.” After being raped by Lobo, the half-witted side-kick feels sorry for Catherine and instead of killing her, he leaves her for dead. Catherine makes it back to the road and eventually ends up in the hospital. Once she regains consciousness she steals a nurses outfit and escapes, making her way back to Lobo's to exact her revenge.

Run! Bitch Run! Is not a mere nod to exploitation films of the 70' is a true grindhouse-style throwback. We the viewers are treated to a smorgasbord of obscenities ranging the gauntlet from tons of titties and doggie-style sex, to heavy drug use. From lesbian nun porn to vanilla lesbian rape scenes. (With a big nod to the toilet-plunger masturbation scene.....ooh-lala!) And if you've always wanted to see a guy sodomized with a machete.....then Run! Bitch Run! Has got you covered.

Every element of this film is a dead-on tribute to those fun, forgotten exploitation relics of the 70's, all the way down to the absolutely amazing score (a super-groovy mix of plodding bass-heavy jams and Hendrix-style psychedelic guitar riffs). It is a near perfect recreation of one of the most disreputable forms of film making, and an absolute blast to watch. Did I mention this movie has wall-to-wall titties too? Well, if I did, its worth mentioning twice.

The only negative thing I have to say about this movie is the fact that most of the kill scenes (and there are a few) deprive the viewer of the money-shot, lots of blood but minus the gore. Yes, its unfortunate, but quite forgivable once the viewer realizes that this beauty was shot on a budget of only $25,000. Run! Bitch Run! is Rape/Revenge schlock of the highest caliber.

I rate it 7.5 murderous Catholic school girls out of 10
