Plot[edit]

The movie about a female detective who is forced to go undercover as a stripper in order to investigate a recent murder.

Production[edit]

The film was inspired by a visit Katt Shea and her husband and writing partner Andy Ruben made to a strip club. She pitched the idea to Roger Corman who agreed to finance it.[2]

Criticism[edit]

Kay Lenz complained publicly about the film's editing and "exploitative" ad campaign aimed at the print media.[3]

Reception[edit]

The film was a hit and led to a sequel, shot on the same set as Dance of the Damned. The sequel was also directed by Shea who took her name off because of Corman's editing interference.[2]
