Movie Info

Euro-horror master Jesús Franco directed this oddball blend of terror, comedy, and music video. The Killer Barbys are a flashy and trashy hard rock band out on the road. En route to their next show, they find themselves hopelessly lost and are forced to take shelter at the estate of Countess Von Fledermaus (Mariangela Giordano). While the Countess seems like a pleasant enough host, the band discovers she has a deadly secret -- she feeds on the blood of strapping young men to stay young and vital, and lead singer Silvia Superstar is soon forced to save her male bandmates from the clutches of the Countess. The Killer Barbys also features Carlos Subterfuge and Pepa Lopez. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Pretty bad, even by Franco standards. The music was terrible, especially when it was used over and over. Too bad Charlie Chaplin's grandson hasn't been in anything else though, he was funny.

Trifecta of awesomeness: gore, nudity & avoidance copyright infringement. The band in the movie is actually called Killer Barbies (correct spelling) but I'm thinking there was an issue with the title upon release, hence, Killer Barbys. I wonder if they have more than 2 songs or not because that's all I heard in the 90 minute duration of this movie.

Fun, violent, sexy Franco thriller. The Killer Barbies themselves are a cool, wild Spanish band who get stuck in one of those dangerous Gothic castles that are always appearing in these kind of movies. What can say? If you like Franco, gore, nudity and Spanish rock bands, you owe it to yourself to see this one...and I still haven't gotten around to seeing the sequel yet.
