Synopsis

Hustler Squad
A handful of women learn how to serve up both sex and violence in this wartime action drama. During World War II, American officer Maj. Stony Stonewall (John Erickson) has been given a difficult assignment -- military intelligence has discovered a number of top Japanese leaders will be meeting on an island in the Philippines for a secret strategy session, and it's his job to infiltrate the island and kill as many of the Japanese brass as possible. Stonewall isn't sure how to get a battalion of soldiers on the island without tipping his hand, so he comes up with a different plan -- there's a brothel for Japanese officers on the island, so why not fill it with prostitutes sympathetic to the Allied cause? Stonewall recruits tough-as-nails convict Rose (Nory Wright), Sonya (Liza Lorena), who was raped by Japanese troops, mob-connected streetwalker Cindy Lee (Lynda Sinclaire) and Anna (Johanna Raunio), who has learned she doesn't have long to live. The women are given a crash course in guerilla military skills and sent to the island as sex workers, waiting for their opportunity to exact revenge against the Japanese leaders. Hustler Squad was a rare English language directorial credit from Philippine filmmaker Cesar Gallardo. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi

Malibu High
A broken heart sends a teenage temptress on the road to prostitution and murder in this surprisingly gritty exploitation drama. Kim (Jill Lansing) is a high school senior with a bad attitude that just gets worse after her boyfriend Kevin (Stuart Taylor) breaks up with her and starts dating Annette (Tammy Taylor), a snooty rich girl. Kim's grades are poor and her financial situation is precarious, so she decides to start using her body to get what she wants. Kim begins improving her marks when she seduces her history teacher, Mr. Donaldson (John Grant), and then blackmails him into giving her an A, following suit with her other male instructors. Meanwhile, Kim buys a new car after partnering with Tony (Al Mannino), a sleazy low-level pimp and drug dealer who quickly has her turning tricks all over town. After establishing herself as a call girl, Kim breaks ties with Tony and starts working with Lance (Garth Howard), a smooth mafia-connected gangster who promises to introducer to a classier clientele. When a customer gets rough with her, Kim stabs him to death with an ice pick, and Lance realizes Kim has what it takes to be a hired killer. Malibu High was the final directorial credit for veteran director Irvin Berwick. ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
