Let’s go back to 1982 for an incredibly dark look into the lives of Hollywood hookers, a crazy pimp and two vice squad cops who are in a race to find a working girl before Ramrod the killer pimp does.
This was a low-budget movie that did pretty damn well at the box office. Many people caught this movie after its release on either VHS or on subscription TV services like “ONTV” and “Spectrum” back in the early-mid 80’s (here in the midwest)
It’s a gritty movie that doesn’t hide the night on the strip.
Season Hubley plays a down-on-her-luck businesswoman-turned-prostitute named “Princess” to help capture a murderous pimp named Ramrod,
The movie also stars Nina Blackwood before she was cast as one of the first VJ’s on MTV.
Wings Hauser is the psychotic pimp named Ramrod who scares the shit out of you, he’s a menace!
It’s a cool movie, a time piece that really takes you back to that time and a diamond in the rough.
As I said earlier, for a low-budget film, it did pretty damn well, over 13 million dollars at th box office
