Headless Body in Topless Bar is a movie loosely inspired
by a true crime, made notorious by a N.Y. Post headline.
The movie unfolds in a shabby New York strip bar. While a bartender dispenses drinks, a topless dancer (Jennifer McDonald) moves listlessly on stage as a businessman (David Selby), two hockey fans (Rustam Branaman, Taylor Nichols), and a wheelchair bound old man (Paul Williams) look on. A Man (Raymond Barry) enters and announces a stick-up. As the bartender reaches for a gun, the Man shoots and kills him.
A night of psychological terror unfolds as the Man -- a psychopath who's spent most his life in prison -- has abrupt mood swings veering between attempts to befriend the group to threats of execution. Forcing the group to play a game called "Nazi Truth," he humiliates the hostages as he peels away their inner secrets, and it remains to be seen who will survive.
