Synopsis

Following a bank heist lovers Candy and Johnny make off with the money, dumping the rest of their gang. But Johnny is arrested and while he is in prison, Candy hides out in a convent. One day a meteor lands in her soup, transforming her poodles into drag queens and making her the host for an alien, who enters her as her new, super-long tongue. The tongue demands human victims, and attacks nuns, gangsters and the returned Johnny.
