The Sisterhood is a seriously odd production. This is the first flick by director Cirio H. Santiago, the prolific Filipino filmmaker who made his way to America via Roger Corman productions, that I’ve ever seen. It’s an odd mixture of technical proficiency with pulp material mixed with a bizarre earnestness in its commitment to its crazy concepts.
As a Road Warrior spawn, The Sisterhood is also a prototype, in a way, of Fury Road. Because in this dystopian post-apocalyptic world, the men run everything. That is, until The Sisterhood show up. These ladies have special powers, like laser eyes, and they are the name of the movie.
A cultural artifact of total nonsense, but fun trash cinema. A sort of religiousy climax adds an even stranger vibe to the whole.
To-do list: More Cirio H. Santiago.
