 Susan heads from Brooklyn to Vegas to find her missing twin sister Sandy. Sandy and her man took a wrong turn in Ellivnatas, which for those of you who didn’t just figure it out, is Satanville backwards.
 
Yep, those cooky Satanists are up to no good again (who’d guess) as Sandy and her man step out of the car to borrow a phone. This decision hasn’t come across as this stupid since Brad and Janet tried it in the Rocky Horror Picture Show.
 
The Satanists are heard clearly speaking in whispers over the soundtrack and cast, who are covered in the overwhelming influence of blue gells. In the movie, yellow is reserved for torches, red for the burning pentagram and blue for all else. The shots during the day very closely resemble outtakes from The Road Warrior, or more closely Tom Petty’s video for “You Got Lucky”.
 
As an aside, for the Horrorview female readers out there, if you meet a rugged guy and that night go home with him and take a shower at his place, by all means, look me up on the forum. That’s Susan’s idea of how to best save her sister, and the shower gets more camera time than most of the co-stars.
 
On a side note to that, if you shower in a strange man’s shower and wake up to nightmares of Satanists having sex with you, change your shampoo. As a side note, this movie does contain my favorite chase scene ever (involving only a VW Rabbit and VW beetles).
 
Astonishingly, when the Satanists find Susan, their plan is pretty much that of any Horrorview reader…tag the hot blonde. The devil worshipers seek to implant her with the seed of Satan himself and to make her bring the evil one blah blah blah. Although, in the end, Spongeblonde Skimpypants overtakes the entire Satanist cult and wins.
 
There’s enough absolute cheese and recurring goofiness to make this flick worth the watching, including the multiple VW Beetle chase scenes. The remaining chase scenes are much closer to Mad Max, both in desert shots and Brian May-esque soundtrack.
 
Fertilize the Blaspheming Bombshell was part of a special late-night “How the fuck do I let Jim talk me into this shit?” double feature with Croaked: Frog Monster from Hell.
