My thoughts… Blood Sombrero is an awesome grindhouse-inspired action/thriller similar to the Tex-Mex-infused The Return of Johnny V. Blood Sombrero doesn’t make much sense but it’s surprisingly well-acted and outrageously fun with plenty of bloody action sequences that deliver a bounty of bad-ass beauties engaged in martial arts mayhem! Actor/musician Billy Blair [who formed the hard rock band Love Stricken Demise with American Idol-alum Nikki McKibbin] is excellent as a glam-rocker-turned-thief with a bit of a dissociative identity disorder, while Paula Marcenaro Solinger is sexy and deadly as mysterious ex-cult member Josephine (Paula Marcenaro Solinger) as are all the actresses who play her former “sisters” – especially the ones in the bar with sugar-skull-painted faces! Oh, and co-writer/do-director Jennifer [Michelle] Stone is absolutely delightful as sarcastic children’s TV star Izzy! “I’m a honey bee,” she clarifies, on two occasions, after being mistaken for a bumble bee! I love that! I love her! I would love to see costume-clad Izzy in a grindhouse action/thriller all her own!
