James Robert Baker – Blonde Death (1984)

Meet Tammy, the Teenage Timebomb. Eighteen years of bottled-up frustration are about to explode.

Romance blooms as the pair spends their days intertwining loins and exterminating innocents. But the endless rumpus falters in the looming shadows of one-eyed homicidal lesbians and former prison boyfriends, and everything soon spirals into apocalyptic, suicidal oblivion. Their lawless descent finally explodes in a sadistic poisoning scheme that wipes out every park-goer at Disneyland; a scene that was illegally shot inside the guarded gates of the actual Magic Kingdom™.

This last bit of daredevilry is exactly what makes Blonde Death a major triumph in the shot-on-video universe. True fearlessness is nearly nonexistent in movies of any budget, and the film’s performances, dialogue and pacing match this inspiring recklessness at every turn. Characters offend with razor wit and expire at lightning speed, drawing possible dismissive comparisons to early John Waters, though Blonde Death is honestly as strong as Waters’ best. All the more impressive is the fact that the entire production was completed for under $2000.
