Cast[edit]

Release[edit]

The UK video release was not allowed to have the word Chainsaw in the title, so the film was released simply as "Hollywood Hookers".

Production[edit]

The film begins with the disclaimer "The chainsaws used in this motion picture are real and dangerous! They are handled here by seasoned professionals. The makers of this motion picture advise strongly against anyone attempting to perform these stunts at home. Especially if you are naked and about to engage in strenuous sex." The film ends with the promise of the sequel Student Chainsaw Nurses, which was never made.

Reception[edit]

Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers received mixed reviews from critics and audiences, earning a Rotten Tomatoes Want-To-See score of 33%.

Quotes[edit]

  • "I'd stumbled into the middle of an evil, insidious cult of chainsaw worshipping maniacs. I had to wonder if we'd let our religious freedom go too far in this country, or maybe our immigration laws were just too lax."
  • "What do you do, pray to Black and Decker?!"
  • "I was cleaning the chainsaw and it just started up!"
