Indie Thriller Alert: Ticked Off Trannies with Knives in Los Angeles for a Premiere October 22nd

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
Ticked Off Trannies with Knives is a shout-out against gay bashing and a response to hate crimes committed against the gay community, as director Irael reiterates: "Ticked-Off Trannies With Knives was created because of the hate crimes toward the gay community." The film was honoured for its message with a World Premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this year and the film will be shown in theatres October 22nd for a limited run (location details below). The film itself involves several transgendered characters being assaulted by a group of gay-bashers. The tables are turned when the trannies are armed. Have a watch of the grindhouse styled trailer below and all the available details of this second premiere are also inside.

The synopsis for Ticked Off Trannies with Knives:

"Revenge takes balls, and no one knows it better than the ladies of Ticked-Off Trannies with Knives, Israel Luna's over-the-top tale of sisterhood and cold-blooded, high-heeled vengeance. The innocent and likable Bubbles Cliquot shows up for her nightly stage performance with a black eye and her transgendered sisters suspect foul play from her latest boy toy. In an attempt to get Bubbles back to her bubbly self, the girls take her out for a relaxed night of cocktails at a local gay bar. After a few drinks, the ladies' troubles seem far away, and Bubble's friends Emma Grashun and Rachel Slurr convince her to join them for a triple date with a pair of charming boys. Sadly, not even three tough-as-nails vixens could be prepared for the ambush that comes next.


It turns out the blind date is set up by Boner, the baseball-bat-wielding, tranny-hating rapist who gave Bubbles her shiner. After luring them into an abandoned warehouse, Boner and his two beefy minions unleash all their hatred on the unsuspecting ladies, leaving them bashed and bruised, but not broken. After waking from her coma, Bubbles enlists the aid of her friends- the sharp-tongued Rachel and the fiercely protective Pinky La'Trimm - to bring her attackers to bloody justice. The ladies get in touch with their inner Zen before arming up with an assortment of bladed weapons and dressing in their finest dominatrix gear (if their knives don't kill, their looks surely will). Not even a man as psychotic as Boner could imagine the well crafted and ingeniously planned bloodbath that ensues. The moral of the story: hell hath no fury like a tranny scorned!"
