HOT ROD GIRLS SAVE THE WORLD FIRST EDITION DVD REVIEWS
#33 May 2009
Think late 1950s low-budget, campy, tongue in cheek, black and white hot rod horror B-movie, but set in 09. Thats Hot Rod Girls Save The World in a nutshell. It takes place in small Anywhere, Washington, and the three main characters are named Vanessa Trojan, Jo Leene Dodge and Betty Petty. get The Point?
Anywhere is invaded by aliens from the planet Moosha Maa. Those same two words seem to be syllables of most native words uttered by the aliens, too.
Sometime Rodz and CKD contributor D.A. Sebasstian is the producer of the film. We featured Betty Pettys movie Model A coupe in an issue of CK Deluxe a couple of years ago.
The acting in HRGSTW is bad, but we think that may be on purpose. The soundtrack, from KsK is good and the movie flows right along. Wed suggest watching it with friends rather than alone, because youre going to want to laugh and comment on it. And its a hot rod movie. When's the last time we had one of those? - Alan Mayes, Ol Skool Rodz

Hot Rod Girls Save the World comes to DVD
Hot Rod Girls Save the World has just been released on DVD.Maybe it should be seen on a drive-in screen, or maybe it should be broadcast on a public television station over rabbit-ear airwaves late at night to a late 1960s TV set that gets awful reception. Either way, if you intend to watch Hot Rod Girls Save the World, dont expect your typical film viewing experience.
We mentioned more than three years ago in this space that D.A. Sebasstian, producer of the underground Seattle television show, Go-Kustom TV, was working on a B movie that featured female street racers, aliens, zombies and rockabilly music. Sebasstian, through his Go-Kustom Films, has now released Hot Rod Girls Save the World on DVD.
As Sebasstian notes in the press release, We are a small film company (and real car guys) without a big Hollywood budget, and the film follows along the same formula. If you prefer actresses who seem to have spent more time in a garage than a theater department, if you prefer gratuitous rockabilly scenes tossed into movies, and if you prefer your movies dance around genre lines between horror, sci-fi, mystery and just plain raucousness, then youll enjoy this film.
At least there are hot rods in it. - By Daniel Strohl
"What a fun film! Harkens back to the glory days of fifties horror with a
wacky mix of aliens, ink, oil and blood." ~Zack Coffman, producer/director
