In the 1990 cult classic film "Bad Girls From Mars," a group of struggling actresses are brought together for what they think is their big break: a role in a cheesy sci-fi flick about sexy alien women from Mars. Little do they know, their audition process will quickly turn into a fight for survival. The movie stars Edy Williams as Myra, the ruthless and seductive director of the film-within-a-film. She's demanding, manipulative, and willing to do whatever it takes to get the performances she wants from her actresses. Oliver Darrow plays Rick, the movie's hapless producer who's constantly at odds with Myra but can't seem to stand up to her. And Brinke Stevens plays Marlene, one of the actresses vying for a spot in the movie. Though she's initially portrayed as a ditzy blonde, Marlene proves to be resourceful and brave in the face of danger.

The bulk of the movie takes place on the set of the sci-fi film, where the actresses soon discover that the props and special effects are not what they seem. As they begin to suspect that something sinister is going on, they're stalked by a mysterious figure clad in a metallic suit who seems to be killing off anyone who gets in the way.

Despite its low budget and B-movie trappings, "Bad Girls From Mars" manages to be both campy and suspenseful. The actresses' exaggerated performances are a nod to the over-the-top acting in classic sci-fi flicks, but they also provide moments of genuine humor and levity. Meanwhile, the tension builds as the women try to survive and figure out who's behind the killings.

The film cleverly subverts some of the expectations of the genre. For instance, the actresses are initially portrayed as catty and competitive with each other, but as they band together to fight for survival, they showcase their strength and resilience. There's also a refreshing lack of gratuitous violence against women, with the male characters frequently being the victims of the killer's attacks.

Overall, "Bad Girls From Mars" is a fun and entertaining homage to classic sci-fi films, with a strong cast and a clever plot. While it may not be for everyone, fans of campy B-movies and tongue-in-cheek humor will find plenty to enjoy.

Bad Girls From Mars is a 1990 comedy with a runtime of 1 hour and 26 minutes. It has received mostly poor reviews from critics and viewers, who have given it an IMDb score of 3.5.
