Run! Bitch Run! is a 2009 rape-revenge film that's a throwback to the exploitation films of the 70s. It's co-written, with Robert James Hayes II, by director Joseph Guzman. It's their first feature and the two of them would collaborate on Nude Nuns With Big Guns the following year. Both their IMDb credits stop in 2011 with a short film called The Gift. I'd seen NNWBG and thought it was a pretty good film but definitely not for the weak ass viewer. It's a barrage of nudity, blood, violence, and special effects. Run! Bitch Run! is like Joe and Rob's practice run.
A couple of Catholic school girls are canvasing door to door, they see a murder, the killer's henchman captures them. The blonde is Catherine, played by Cheryl Lyone and the brunette is Rebecca, played by Ivet Corvea.
That's the scum what done the crimes. The long haired guy is the leader, he's called Lobo, and he's a straight up psycho who comes to a good end. Tommy and Marla are the rest of the gang. They aren't as psycho but they aren't far off. No one will miss them when they expire.
Poor Rebecca is killed pretty quickly but Lobo has other plans for Catherine. They take her to a wooded area and let her go. The title comes from Lobo yelling Run, bitch, run! at her. I thought the title should have punctuated with the same commas as the phrase in the movie. The exclamation point after the first run seems weird to me. It just doesn't scan right.
Lobo tells Catherine he's going to track her, rape her, and kill her. He does and he leaves her for dead. She doesn't die in the woods, nope, she staggers out of them and recovers in the hospital. After her release she gets a big knife and goes after the trio of scum. You can guess what's going to happen to those pricks.
The actors were all pretty good for the most part. The film was well enough made but it's a pretty dreadful story, not everyone's going to like it. It does copy that 70s style fairly well. It could have been on a drive-in double bill with I Spit On You Grave back in the day. It's very like that film. At least that's what my faulty memory tells me, I have to admit I only watched it once, back in the 80s. Back when I saw ISOYG, on VHS, I fast forwarded some of the nastier bits. It's the same with R!BR!. It's so much better being in control of your media. Imagine having to sit in a dark theater, with a film running in real time, and it's a piece of crap. I was also disappointed in the ending of Run! Bitch Run!, it made me like the film less. It's not unrealistic but it makes me less interested in returning to it.
