Cinemax’s Femme Fatales: 106 – Girls Gone Dead

This week’s Femme Fatales, Girls Gone Dead, was about the wonderful world of the Girls Gone Wild type videos. Are those still around? In this episode, a sorority house is in need of money and agrees to shoot a ‘Crazy Chix’ video in exchange for $10,000 to avoid foreclosure.

Lilith explains to us that the girls in these videos basically shouldn’t be held accountable for their actions since beads and booze are irresistible…

Our filmmakers are Jay Roma (Jerry O’Connel’s Brother) and his cameraman Kip (Dean Haglund – The X Files), and they arrive at the sorority house with expectations of shooting 10 girls getting ‘Crazy’. And crazy they will get…

They are greeted at the door by the heads of the charter – Tiffany, Erida, and Alexis. These three sadly where not at Michigan State when I lived in East Lansing…

Money is exchanged, hands are shook, and a deal is struck. Time to shoot some videos. As Jay, who actually comes off as less of a douche than you’d expect in this profession, is introduced to the rest of the girls, then takes a few of them upstairs to get things moving…

Once upstairs and shirts come off, they start to make a truly lame video and it becomes clear something isn’t quite right. Jay then points out that only 9 of the promised 10 girls are present. As this is discussed, Tiffany promises that the 10th girl will be along and Jay has nothing to worry about.

Kip and Erida head out to the RV to get a new tape, where she inexplicably tries to seduce him. Fearing for his job however, he turns her down. That’s probably a first for her…

Once back inside Kip starts to explore and finds much to his surprise, the house is falling apart. Holes in the walls and ceiling, empty cabinets, and no water, except what he finds in the vodka bottles. Outside of a few rooms, the house is almost completely dilapidated. And I know Sorority girls aren’t knowing for their carpentry skills, but it’s pretty damning. That’s when Erida finds him upstairs and Kip confronts her about the house and fake booze. He won’t like the answer she gives…

Downstairs however, Jay is getting the royal treatment, as he find himself in a bed with 3 chicks, and the rest of the sisters watching on…

It’s while in this comprising situation that they slip the handcuffs on, and then tie the sheet around his neck. After blindfolding him, all of which he finds very kinky, they stand him on a block of ice. This is a classic strategy. He will hang once the ice melts, but he’s a bit slow on the uptake.

It turns out that all the girls had appeared in his videos in the past and it ruined their lives, so this whole setup was for revenge. All the episode Greek Majors probably picked up hints, and all the girls took the names of Greek Goddesses of hate and revenge and death and what not. Why? Well, Caroline, the tenth girl it seems, couldn’t take it after being on ‘Crazy Chix’ and hung herself, just the road Mr. Roma is headed down now.

Jay pulls out the tough guy routine and starts yelling about how he won’t be embarrassed. That is when Erida explains that Kip won’t be coming to help him, as he recently caught a hammer with his face. Which was followed by what can only be described as a gratuitously long shot of the blood splatter…

Things don’t end well for Jay as he obviously dies on his block of ice, broadcast over his website for all his fans. Sucks to be him.

As the episode comes to a close, though we didn’t get a character cameo, we do see Lilith once more, on the TV. She closes out the show with a voice-over, much like in the first episode. So maybe it’s closing statement OR cameo. Personally, I’d prefer both.

Overall, I wasn’t as crazy about this episode as I was about Lilith’s plaid skirt at the beginning, but it wasn’t terrible either. I will say I didn’t like the message though, blaming poor Jay for their problems. It’s called PERSONAL RESPONSIBILITY ladies. Learn it.

 I award 2.5 Bears.

BONUS PICLilith’s Legs. You’re welcome.

  1. Tanit Phoenix is amazing, I watch this show just for her. The makers of the series should start giving her a bigger part, not just as the host. She really needs her own show. I would tune in to watch Tanit any day of the week. So beautiful.


    1. p.s. I meant the REAL redhead. the curly haired one who had no lines with the perfect breasts and hot bod!


  2. Tanit Phoenix should be given chances to take her clothes off…on various episodes…I think that what fans want to say….
    On the second season, maybe?
