Movie Info

Four friends race to get rid of the dead hooker discovered decomposing in their trunk, and learn that disposing of a dead body isn't nearly as easy as it looks on TV. A tough-talking babe, her nerdy sister, their God-fearing friend, and a junkie rocker are preparing for another typical day when they make a grim discovery. Someone has murdered a hooker and stuffed her in their trunk. But who did it, and why? As the quarreling foursome search for a place to dump the deceased streetwalker, the

A grimy slice of low-budget depravity that's as entertaining as it is completely ridiculous.

the rough edges are all part of the punk appeal in this ultra-low-budget Canadian indie... and if you are looking for pleasures of a better class or quality, what exactly are you doing with a Dead Hooker in a Trunk anyway?

I think the Soska Sisters will ultimately prove to be better than this material. Not that the material isn't fun. But I note an artistic sensibility that will, with the proper financial nurturing, expand beyond the grindhouse.

It earns points as an exploitationer that would've played well to stoned drive-in patrons in the early '70s, but amounts to little more than lots of energetic shrieking and heavy make-up.

The film is an uneven, ultra-low budget project fueled by wild energy and do-it-yourself inventiveness.

Audience Reviews for Dead Hooker in a Trunk

The debut film from twisted twins Jen and Sylvia Soska has one of the coolest and most enticing titles for a grindhouse film in as long as I can remember. The Soska Sisters, like Robert Rodriguez before them, are out to prove that it is possible to do a lot with no money as long as you have the creativity and the ambition to succeed. I truly can't wait to see their next film.
Having said that, this movie didn't work for me. I get that this isn't a film to be taken seriously. But unlike Rodriguez's El Mariachi, Dead Hooker in a Trunk is filled with great ideas but poor execution. It attempts to confront and break down the notion of how men too frequently objectify women, but then gets completely sidetracked in needless subplots involving chainsaw gangs and crooked cops.
I'm also aware that the cheap amateur look fits the grindhouse style, but Dead Hooker suffers from especially poor sound, uneven picture quality, awful acting, and noticeably bad special effects. The whole thing feels like a home movie made over a weekend. I am the first person to champion DIY-filmmaking, but too many mistakes - both in the writing and the technical craft - have been made in the final presentation of this film for me to recommend. Die-hard grindhouse fans might dig this. Everyone else may not be able to make it through the first thirty minutes.
