Probably passes, but definitely not a feminist flick. Overtly homophobic. The first 15 minutes of this movie features a lesbian sex scene (or rather, a male director's idea of what lesbians do when they have sex, which is to say there's like seven minutes of women scissoring each other). After that, they talk about how one of the women has ambiguous emotions about what they've done, how she might be ashamed, yadda yadda. This would pass the Bechdel Test, except I'm not sure the women actually have names.. they are named in the credits, but i never heard their names spoken. I turned the movie off shortly after, because If i wasn't insulted enough by the lesbian sex scene to turn it off then and there, the horrible acting, bad special effects, and unprovocative bizarreness that follows shortly after was certainly enough. If anyone who had stomach enough to sit through this whole flick has any objections to my rating by all means let me know why and i'll change the rating.
