If I had seen this film, it’s been a fleeting memory, and my recollections of it were sketchy to non-existent. I had to watch it when I saw it on Netflix. This happens to be one of the granddaddy’s of the slasher film genre when there was no genre at all. At this particular point in 1976, there was only one other, and that was “The Texas Chainsaw Massacre”. No “Halloween” yet, and “Friday the 13th” was even further down the line. My expectations »
Violence, torture, voyeurism, gang-rape, murder, nudity, and epic levels of misogyny…..it must be time for another Late Night Grindhouse!!!
At The Hi-Pointe Theater (1005 McCausland Ave, St. Louis) this Friday and Saturday nights (February 7th and 8th) at Midnight, the guys at Destroy the Brain are presenting a 35mm print of Centerfold Girls, a remarkably skanky gem from 1974. Andrew Prine, decked in saddle-shoes, a hideous leisure suit, and a shag haircut, stars in Centerfold Girls as Clement Dunne, a kooky puritanical nerd who sets out to murder a year’s worth of centerfold girls from a nudie mag.

Banned In Iceland! 35Mm Film Print!

Soon a number of other beautiful women turn up dead, their throats also cut open. Nurses, students, stewardesses… what’s the common thread? All were centerfold models for a popular men’s magazine, prey to a bloodthirsty psychotic with a straight razor!
Framed by an unusual three-story arc and jam-packed with delectable nudity and grim violence, The Centerfold Girls is an exploitation masterpiece, a depraved hell-ride through the skuzzy Seventies grindhouse circuit where sleaze and mean-spiritedness prevailed. Starring Tiffany Bolling (The Candy Snatchers), Aldo Ray (The Psychic Killer), Ray Danton (The Rise and Fall of Legs Diamond), Francine York (The Doll Squad »
