Killer Barbys

R2 Spain



Euro-horror master Jesús Franco directed this oddball blend of terror, comedy, and music video. The Killer Barbys are a flashy and trashy hard rock band out on the road. En route to their next show, they find themselves hopelessly lost and are forced to take shelter at the estate of Countess Von Fledermaus (Mariangela Giordano). While the Countess seems like a pleasant enough host, the band discovers she has a deadly secret -- she feeds on the blood of strapping young men to stay young and vital, and lead singer Silvia Superstar is soon forced to save her male bandmates from the clutches of the Countess. The Killer Barbys also features Carlos Subterfuge and Pepa Lopez.
