Ladykillers is a 1988 movie starring Lesley-Anne Down, Marilu Henner and Susan Blakely. The plot is unconnected with The Ladykillers film of 1955 or the 2004 remake of the same name. The plot has a role reversal theme. Performers in a Los Angeles male strip club are being murdered by an unknown, but female, assailant. Unable to gain a lead, one of the investigating officers, Lt. Cavanaugh (Thomas Calabro), goes undercover as a stripper in an attempt to trap the murderer, but he is almost killed in the process. Through his journey as a male stripper, Lt. Cavanaugh gained a better understanding of his inner self, his emotional side and how his relationships with women tended to be one sided fetish fests; taking him further down a darkened alley of misfortune.
