Bloodsucking Pharaohs in Pittsburgh (1991)


Quite a forgettable cheapie splat-fest that reminded me of Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers with its emphasis on witty one liners rather than an atmospheric plot. It lacks that film’s more unique qualities and frankly, the only thing that brought me here was the Tom Savini effects, I’m a Savini completist and this is undoubtedly the most obscure movie on his resume. As usual his work is worth the time alone, even if it doesn’t have the finesse of a more polished project. It’s fun and silly and there’s clearly some conceptual ambition given the filmmakers’ (extremely) limited resources. Sadly, I saw it about two weeks ago and already I can remember very little apart from the scantily-clad woman in Egyptian gear wielding a chainsaw.
