Written and directed by: Jane Clark

Starring: Samantha Colburn, Cathy DeBuono, Andy Gala, Liz McGeever, Victoria Profeta, Guinevere Turner, Nayo Wallace, Mary Jane Wells, and Candis Cayne

Seven women (and one gay guy), all friends from college, head up to a ranch in the mountains to celebrate Alice’s (Profeta) birthday. The only problem is the ranch is the stomping grounds of the never-caught vanity killer. Well… There is one more little problem. These women (and man) are pretty damn vain. Once under the same roof, they all show their bitchy/catty/self-obsessed sides. When Belinda (Turner) disappears and winds up dead, the rest start dropping like flies.

I have somewhat mixed feelings about “Crazy Bitches” (in more ways than one… Sorry I had to). I loved the cast, and they all are great. The movie has it’s funny moments, and I love the idea of narcissism/vanity getting you killed. I think though that the film would have been better as a comedy about the relationships between women (and gay men). The horror elements of the film just didn’t quite work for me. It seemed to me that writer/director Jane Clark didn’t feel comfortable blending humor, horror, and an underlying message about the importance of friendship. Not that I can blame her. That is a tall order for anyone.

I did enjoy many moments of the movie. Bj (Gala) is hilarious as the quick-witted gay guy, and the scene in which he and Casie (DeBuono) fight actually had me laughing out loud. Indeed all of the performers are more than up to the task, and there isn’t a weak showing in the bunch. I just think that in the case of this film less would have been more. If it had just been a bit shorter, and had either more bloodshed and scares or no killing at all it would have been more enjoyable for me.
