The Plot: 

If you want to see hot chicks in action...rent a porno. Sure, this has hot chicks, but even if they were sleeping with each other, the movie wouldn't be worth it.

This movie has 3 openings; two of witch have nothing to do with the plot. First, we find out how girls join Batwoman and her synthetic Vampires by drinking...YOGURT! It gets worse.

The second is a mugging gone wrong and the Batgirls who witnessed him can do only what Batgirls can do...CALL BATWOMAN! That's it. Nothing else. It gets worse.

The third opening, and the one that HAS something to do with the movie are all the Batgirls at a dance club. One of them is given a drugged drink by Tiger and Bruno while the other Batgirls just dance and dance for two more minutes. And yes, it gets worse.

Meanwhile, outside of Batwoman's house, we see...An UNEMPLOYED LUCHADOR! Seriously, we see Rat Fink peeping in to Batwoman's living room seeing her getting a call about the kidnapped girl.

The girl is taken to Professor Neon and his sidekick with the "Hilarity of Drop Dead Fred" as Mike said in the MST3K ep: Hethcliff. We then find out that they work for Rat Fink who needs Batwoman for his DIABOLICAL SCHEME! Note that I'm being sarcastic about that one.

After a whole day (Or what felt like a lifetime), the girls and Batwoman form a plan to get their member back, when Rat Fink uses the kidnapped girl's radio to call Batwoman, who knows who he was from his first words. He wants Batwoman to go to the lair and meet him and his goons. Once there, we see that Prof. Neon invented a Happy Pill that causes people to dance. Think Prozac times 10 with Acid mixed in. The goons and Batwoman gather around a screen with chocolate milk and see Rat Fink's calling. While hearing that Rat Fink will let the girl go if Batwoman helps him steal an ATOMIC HEARING AID (Yes, nuclear powered hearing aid), Neon spikes Batwoman's drink with a pill. She sees this and gives the spiked drink to Neon, who winds up dancing the monkey as she opens the cage they were keeping the Batgirl in and left the area.

We then find out that the hearing aid has the power to cause a big explosion if nitro is applied to it and that's why Rat Fink wants it. Batwoman and the girls are hired to protect it, but wind up eating soup spiked with the Happy pill and while they're dancing, they steal the hearing aid.

Will they get it back? Will Batwoman stop Rat Fink? Will this movie drive you insane to the point where you can't wait until "Passions" is on? I can answer that last one: Yes.

Things I Learned From This Movie: 

  • Apparently, a foot is not the only thing that turns people on. Phone conversations do too.
  • When seeing someone being mugged, talk to the woman who's on the other end of your wrist radio. Police do nothing, it's talking that gets...well, nothing got done here...never mind.
  • A friend being kidnapped shouldn't stop your dance party.
  • People get tired of being happy.
  • Weird looking radar guns work better than lock picks.
  • Crooks, be sure your goons don't fall in love with the woman they're kidnapping or your crime will be foiled.

Stuff To Watch For: 

  • 1 min - OOOOOOOOOOOO! An initiation process. I'm sure this'll...wait...YOGURT?! SYNTHETIC VAMPIRES?! This is gonna hurt.
  • 4 mins - Want to know if you shot the guy you were mugging? Look into the barrel of your loaded gun.
  • 5 mins - And now, we're at a dance club. Dance club? What about the mugging?
  • 8 mins - A peeping luchador.
  • 15 mins - What's he doing to that model? EWWWWWWWWWWWWWWWW!
  • 36 mins - Want to find a stolen object and all you have to help you is Batwoman? Hold a seance. Hahahaha...kill me.
  • 37 mins - BAD CHINESE ALERT!
  • 38 mins - Again with the bad Chinese?!
  • 38 mins - ENOUGH WITH THE BAD CHINESE ALREADY!
  • 39 mins - FOR THE LOVE OF EVERYTHING HOLY, SHUT UP!
  • 50 mins - What? Hey! That's from "The Mole People!" That's just...hahahahahaha! Someone, please kill me. I DON'T WANNA SEE THIS MOVIE!
  • 65 mins - If I may quote Tom Servo at this point: END! END!

Quotes: 

  • Captured Batgirl: "I'm tired of being happy!"
  • Hethcliff: "When I was a little boy, I was hit on the head and that was responsible for my high IQ."
  • From the MST3K Ep, Tom: "END! END!"

 Got some laffs from this one.. it's a jaw-hanger.
 I been collecting up this B-stuff since the mid 70s...this is my 1st post..
 A lot of the stuff reviewed here...prolly shouldn't be..like Jack Frost or Freddie or a lot of the later stuff. There's a ton of oldies I don't see here... it's hard to grasp some of it if u weren't around in the fifties.
 Anything made past the early 60s..is starting to get a bit 'deliberate'.. like a send-up...
 Beast of Yucca Flats..was made on a budget of ZILCH. Tor Johnson got THREE hundred Bux for starring in it !! You can't criticize such a movie... only goggle at it.
Why are the Evil Dead movies in here.. ? They were pretty dang good, so where is the line on 'B' ?
 Dig deeper my friends.

I have seen both.  It is bad but not as bad as the early original Batman movie with Adam West.  At least with Wild World of Batwoman there were some pretty ladies to look at instead of guys in tites.

I would suggest an upgrade to one slime for the ladies.  Cheers

Later,

John

I haven't seen this, and I can't think of a single reason why I'd want to, but I read somewhere that, because they already owned a character called Batwoman, DC successfully sued the studio for copyright infringement, which resulted in some prints having the title changed to "She Was A Hippy Vampire". Which sounds like something I'd feel like watching if I didn't know it was just this movie with a new name. Is this true?

I've heard this too- The Unknown Movies repeats the story here.  He explains that the scene before the credits with the Batgirls initiating a new member by making her drink "blood" was added to justify the vampire angle, which I don't think is mentioned anywhere else in the movie.

And welcome, Dr. Orloff: I feel like I know you already.  Smile

Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

Lesson Learned:
  • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
