They Charge An Arm And A Leg!

Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers is a 1988 American parody of the Slasher Movie directed by Fred Olen Ray and starring Gunnar Hansen and Linnea Quigley. It concerns a cult of prostitutes who kill people with chainsaws.

This film contains examples of:

  • Adaptational Villainy: Anubis gets this once again, this time being a Human Sacrifice demanding god of chainsaws instead of the kindly god of mummification.
  • Antagonist Title
  • Big Bad: The Master, leader of the chainsaw cult.
  • Chainsaw Good: The villains of the film have chainsaws as their Weapon of Choice.
  • Crapsack World: Los Angeles is a Wretched Hive where crime, including incestuous rape, is epidemic and a chainsaw cult is running around killing people for their dark gods.
  • Cult: The main antagonists of the film are a cult that stems to Ancient Egypt and worships chainsaws.

  • Disproportionate Retribution: After the opening text crawl, we cut to a hooker talking about one time she killed a guy with a chainsaw because he tried to scam her into a free lay.
  • Do Not Try This at Home: The film opens with a disclaimer to be very careful around chainsaws, especially during sex. It ends with a message by the director himself that his conscience is clear.
  • The End... Or Is It?: The Master is chainsawed and his cult are rounded up by the police, but the Master's body disappears.
  • Gory Deadly Overkill Title of Fatal Death
  • Greater-Scope Villain: The cult worships Anubis the Chainsaw God, who gives their master immortality in exchange for Human Sacrifice, but said god is never seen.
  • Immortality Immorality: The Master has a special ceremony where his cult commits mass Human Sacrifice so he can live another hundred years.

  • The Master: This Master is a chainsaw-worshipping, immortality-seeking cult leader.
  • Ms. Fanservice: All the chainsaw hookers appear nude at least once, but Mercedes wins the title, due to having the most nudity.
  • Parental Incest: According to Da Chief, there's an epidemic of fathers raping their daughters.
  • Private Eye Monologue: The protagonist has one. A Running Gag in the film is when the monologue directly contradicts the events on screen.
  • Sadly Mythtaken: Done intentionally and Played for Laughs. In this universe, Anubis is the god of chainsaws instead of mummification.
