Storyline

"Swimwear Illustrated" is approaching its fifteenth anniversary issue. From a group of eager and beautiful young women, five are chosen for a photo shoot on an island off the California coast. One of the five will be the cover girl, and she'll get an extra $100,000. On the island, the group stays at an isolated inn, staffed by the odd Frab. There's him, the five models, and four magazine staff: photographer, make-up man, ambitious assistant Anesa, and Jack Denton, the playboy in charge of production. One by one, models and staff disappear, leaving Jack notes of apologetic farewell. But have they left by choice, or is murder afoot? Who would commit such crimes, and why?

Cause all the girls are stylin'....on bikini island!
8 May 2003 | by capkronosSee all my reviews

Finalists for the coveted title of Swimwear Illustrated cover girl travel with photography crew to a secluded island for a shoot, become trapped and are then systematically bumped off by a mysterious killer.

All the elements needed to please B/trash/exploitation fans are here and accounted for-- bad acting, stupid dialogue, sex watched through peepholes, endless modeling sessions set to cheesy rock songs, death by bathroom plunger, a van driven over a cliff, nudity, breast-bouncin' volleyball games with slow motion high-fives, a snake eating a mouse and ridiculous multiple suspects, including a gross Arabic (?) motel manager named "Frab" (read it backwards) who keeps caged chickens in his bedroom and sucks on his bottom lip while oggling stolen pictures of the beauties.

However, we the viewer are slightly caught off guard when we realize the painstaking work it took the scriptwriters to justifying the eventual triumph and survival of lead blonde starlet Annie Kelly (Holly Floria). She's nice enough to lend out her string bikinis and suntan oil to the others and thus, dammit, she deserves to live!

Incidentally, the soundtrack to this movie is great! Thanks for finally giving us a song about "Little teeny weenie, French cut bikinis," that was so deserve.

Score: 4 out of 10
