This Tuesday, July 28, the Grindhouse Film Festival is showing the 1982 flick Vice Squad at the Hollywood Theater. What's it about? We'll let the Grindhouse Film Festival answer that question:
A prostitute named Princess decides to help the police when her friend is murdered. When things don't go as planned, she ends up on the run through the underbelly of 80's Hollywood. This is relentlessly paced action and suspense, but the real reason to see this movie is for the cocky psycho-pimp wearing the cold blooded stare and cowboy boots: Wings Hauser completely rips the screen in half with his portrayal of Ramrod, a ferociously sadistic pimp, and one of the greatest villains of all time. Armed with his "pimp stick", Ramrod races for brutal revenge against Princess and anyone who gets in his way. Featuring sleaze, violence, strange sexual fetishes, a kung fu scene that comes out of absolutely nowhere, and Wings Hauser's incredible performance.Here's the trailer:
