Girlquake! is a film from New York artist Michael Randall.[1] The movie was a throwback to exploitation films, in particular the works of Russ Meyer.


The film was made independently sometime in the mid-1990s. It was praised by film critic Joe Bob Briggs in a July 1995 review.[2] Its opening scene was later recounted in the book For Women Only: Your Guide to Health Empowerment by Gary Null and Barbra Seaman.[3]


The film opens in an Arizona dinner, where a group of five Amazon women erupt from the center of the Earth. A group of men attempt to rape them but are killed, one by being drowned in a bowl of meat.

The Amazon women must make their way to Coney Island, where their Queen is. In their search for her, the end up meeting Ginger, a stripper called "Queen of Double Ds," Queen Zahara, a performer in a freak show, Chersteen, a drag queen, and a Dominatrix.
