Viewing Notes

Finally got around to watching something from the White Slaves of Chinatown YouTube channel. This is an odd little Canuxploitation film with a fun performance by Canadian character actor Kay Hawtrey (who was in VIDEODROME!). She’s done a ton of TV movies and series.

If this were American made there’d be a lot more bloodshed and nudity; as it is, it’s pretty tame. This would be ripe for a remake though.
