Ok, I (Colette, the writing half of Tape Freaks) might have overstated the "heavy metal" aspect of this month's theme. Either "rock and roll" horror didn't sound as good, or the voice actors in this month's movie over sold the metal-ness of its band, and I let it slide in favor of alteration. Honestly there's only one way to find out which it is, however neither deception will leave you disappointed!
But if it does turn out that I'm the deceptor, allow me to defend my choices by assuring that most everything in this film, from vibe to the wardrobe, better fits under the category 80s-metal trope.

Clue #3: Rothrock isn't this month's movie's only big name actor at the start of a career, there are multiple actors in this film that would go on to success and longevity. (Our favorite of which sports an absolutely unidentifiable accent the entire movie.)
Clue #2: This month's movie doesn't star Rothrock, but it does highlight some of her weapon skills along with her fighting skills. It's also very, very weird.

Plot unfolds something like this: Harris Stone (Stacy Keach) is a cop nearing retirement who's looking for as little action as possible to close out his career. So when faced with suddenly choosing a new partner, he decides Charlotte Heller (Cynthia Rothrock) is the safest bet. Why? Well because she's a woman, obviously! Unfortunately for Stone, this particular woman is looking to flex her martial arts skills, and with terrorists attempting to take over the local mall, hilarity is bound to ensue.
But how do we really feel?: If you are in the mood for some decent early 90s action., this movie is surprisingly very watchable, and as we mentioned, it highlights Rothrock's skills where other films drop the ball. Also the whole thing is on Youtube so it's easy to find too!
One last hilarious thing: While trying to gain access to the mall, Stacy Keach attempt to climb up a garbage shoot and falls repeatedly for what feels like 20 mins.
