Cannibal Rollerbabes is a 1997 low-budget Canada horror film about cannibalism, directed by Kalman Szegvary. It is set in Los Angeles, although it was filmed in Ontario.
When Scott is fired from Local Diner because he assaulted a patron (Billy Waters, who razzed him about getting on the force first), Scott decides to visit his friend Chuck at the radio station. They decide go to Chuck's dad's cottage to relax. They meet two girls who are pulled off to the side of the road, but decide not to give them a ride, believing that they have a whole week ahead of them to find other girls. Later that evening, while fishing, Scott has visions of a girl called Anna. The next day while Scott and Chuck are fishing, Scott sees an old castle on an island, which Chuck explains is an abandoned laboratory. In fact, the laboratory is not abandoned, but a home to the scientist who goes by the name of Atman. Under Atman's control are a group of women on rollerblades he likes to call "Rollerbabes", led by his main servant, "Spike". He sends Spike out using a radio control device to gather men to eat in order to preserve their beauty. One of the girls, Anna, finds herself drawn towards Scott and tries unsuccessfully to escape the island.
Scott and Chuck decide to go rollerblading, but are split up. Chuck is knocked out by two of the Rollerbabes and taken back to the castle. Scott is targeted by Atman himself, who attempts to attack him with a machete and misses. Scott knows he is being surrounded, and flees. When he manages to escape, he discovers the town's sheriff dragging partially devoured human flesh from the river, causing him to realise he must rescue Chuck from the castle.
When Scott arrives on the island, he meets an elf called Random, who helps him hide from the Centurions that guard the island. While trying to enter the castle, the Rollerbabes catch him. Once in the castle, Scott finds that he is too late to save Chuck. He then has to escape by confronting Atman himself.
This movie suffered distribution problems. Due to high demand of bootleg copies of the film, it was finally released on DVD by the director himself. The DVD contains special features such as director's commentary and a "Making Of" documentary.
