How about a NO-budget movie? Shot for 500 bucks over a three year stretch, IT STARTS WITH MURDER! combines nonexistent production values with a flamboyant trash-culture aesthetic to tell a story that is equal parts John Waters and Mario Bava. The premise: A black-gloved killer stalks the guests of a fabulous resort. It's up to world famous detective Miss Mandrake to solve this string of brutal slayings... But can she unmask the murderer before he strikes again? More importantly, does she even want to? Starring Curvacia VaVoom of The Spook Lights in her first headlining role, IT STARTS WITH MURDER is a sleazy melodrama taken to the most horrific extremes. Keep your eyes peeled for cameos from members of WEIRD WOUNDS, STULL, and BETELGEUSE, BETELGEUSE, BETELGEUSE. WARNING: Trailer contains brief nudity.
