‘He was their judge… jury… and executioner!’
The Centerfold Girls – aka Centerfold Girls – is a 1974 American horror thriller film directed by John Peyser from a screenplay by Bob Peete, based on a story by production executive Arthur Marks (J.D.’s Revenge). The movie stars Andrew Prine, Tiffany Bolling, Aldo Ray and Ray Danton.
A depraved religious fanatic (Andrew Prine) sets out to punish all the “immoral” women who have posed for the centerfold of a men’s magazine…
‘Very cheap looking … The Centerfold Girls is essential 1970s Californian exploitation which is anything put predictable and features a dream grindhouse cast.’ DVD Drive-In
‘Thankfully, The Centerfold Girls does not drown under the weight of meanness. Perhaps surprisingly, given the seeming message of the film, it is the models themselves that are the few genuinely good people and it is their niceness that bucks the misanthropy elsewhere.’ JA Kerswell, Hysteria Lives!
‘ … a highly recommended venture for those who love nasty exploitation features with that 70’s vibe and style that was a signature of the decade. Despite the rampant nudity and sordid atmosphere, the way the film is shot and directed adds an undeniable air of professionalism to the whole enterprise.’ Cool Ass Cinema
‘The Centerfold Girls is likely to appeal to fans of both exploitation as well as slasher purists, and the two genres complement each other nicely here. Prine’s performance is exemplary, and there’s no dearth of naked women or delicious murder. Essential viewing.’ The Church of Splatter-Day Saints
