 Kinky Killers depicts a series of murders, each punctuated by dismemberment.  There’s a serial killer on the loose hacking off limbs…in NEW JERSEY!  As viewers are treated to the grisly details, two cops must track down the source of the murders, and the insane killer behind them.  The film features equal parts tits, ass and gore (actually, more ass than tits if you’re counting). 
 
The opening of the film, after the ear-splitting annoyance that is the credits, features a trapped woman in a dark room.  Soon after, the cops discover a headless body, and investigation into the grisly series of murders begins.  Then, viewers are introduced to psychiatrist Jill Kessey (Black Tie Night’s Beverly Lynne).  She is engaged in a client interview straight out of The Sopranos.
 
Soon the cops are on the trail of the twisted psychiatrist, with little results as the bodies and scripture readings start piling up.  With the help of another shrink, Grace (Code Blue’s Brooke Lewis), the cops start to piece together the clues.  When the cops falter, others soon work their way to the bizarre conclusion.  In the end, it’s a wild mish-mash of cops, rock stars, naked chicks and scripture that sets the stage for a mind-twisting climax.
 
For the first 30 minutes, the film could be dubbed “Naked Chicks Yelling ‘Fuck!’” or “Guys in Pink Ties”.  After that point, there are too many moving parts and way too many ties into the Bible to limit things to that title. 
 
Kinky Killers is also known as Polycarp, in reference to the Polycarp of Smyrna, a Bishop in the first century.  For obvious marketing reasons, Polycarp was replaced as the title of the film in the USA.  The film bears no connection to Barb Wire Production Designer Jean-Phillipe Carp, Robbie Schaeffer’s song, “There’s a Carp in the Tub” or “The World According to Garp”, which, as they say in the film, sounds like a fish.
 
Kinky Killers was filmed on location in Hoboken, New Jersey.  It’s a miracle that former Skid Row frontman Sebastian Bach isn’t seen wandering in any of the shots.  The DVD features Widescreen aspect ratio, and Dolby 2.0 audio.  The film runs 85 minutes.  Extras on the DVD include the film’s trailer and a featurette called “Inside Look Into the Mind of a Serial Killer”.
