Bloody Mallory (Julien Magnat, 2002)

What do you get when you mix a hot leather-clad chick, a drag queen demolitions expert, demonic cults, papal conspiracies, vampires and other undead creatures, a little girl with strong psychic powers, and just for laughs kill a few nuns in the first 15 minutes? Possibly the most awesome movie ever, that's what.

Now, the film is in French with subtitles (at least on Netflix), but fortunately it is not too distracting. It is definitely a B-Movie with special effects very much like an episode of Charmed or Buffy the Vampire Slayer, but the coolness of the ideas make up for the budgetary constraints.

Mallory, the lead character played by Olivia Bonamy, was tricked into marriage with a demon. She killed her demonic spouse and in revenge movie style decided to go after supernatural predators of all types. She forms a secret government team with Inspector Durand as their government liaison, Vena Cava, the aforementioned drag queen demolitions expert, and Talking Tiny, a gifted psychic. They are called in on a case involving nuns being attacked by the undead, which leads them to a greater threat.

I was thoroughly impressed with this movie. It was funny, exciting, and the ideas are in my mind new to cinema. This is possibly the best B-Movie I have seen in a long time, though I am occasionally prone to hyperbole. You can see it free, though, so definitely check it out. It is a ton of fun.

Watch it on YouTube, Netflix, or Hulu.
