I have had an infatuation with ‘Vice Squad’ since I was a very little girl. You see, my aunt acted in the movie when I was just old enough to realize that this was completely awesome. I didn’t get to the see the movie when it came out, for rather obvious reasons, but I did seek it out when I was old enough. As suspected, it is a remarkable display of camp, cops, crime, and cinematic wonderment. To be clear, it is awful. But it is also a completely perfect campy masterpiece.
The action starts when the sadistic, but exquisitely named pimp Ramrod is wanted by the Hollywood Vice Squad on charges of murder. An industrious undercover detective with a boring name–Tom Walsh– enlists the aid of a prostitute to help capture the killer. Way before Jennifer Love Hewitt played one on Lifetime, Princess was a loving mother struggling to support her kid with the money she earned the only way she could. When the cops enlists her to help capture the fiend roaming the seedy streets of Los Angeles, she ends up the prey. The only ones who can save her? That’s right, The Vice Squad.
Make some popcorn, pull up the BarcaLounger and watch Vice Squad at 8 p.m. ET tonight! It’s Thursday, what else do you have to do?
