This film was still being screened in 1968, 11 years after its first release at the Evansville Drive In - Evansville, IN. Bish Thompson the film critic for the local paper reviewed it only as "emphasis is on the last word." A few years later, Poor White Trash II was released with a promo ad in the local paper as, " in the tradition of The Godfather now comes Poor White Trash II all-new and in COLOR!! See more »
I remember this film being shown in local theatres as "For Adults Only." I was 7 years old at the time. Thirty years later I found this film in the video store under the title, "Poor White Trash," as it was billed in the theatres along with "Shanty Tramp." There is no "adult" shock value to this piece of crap whatsoever.
What you have is a poor, grainy, mostly dark celluloid that contains scenes of what would be considered "PG" today: a scene of Lita Milan's character running through the woods naked (the camera shot the scene from so far away all you really see is a ghostlike figure running, pursued by a man in a white shirt (Tim Carey). The subsequent rape scene shows Lita Milan's screaming head going back and forth (you can imagine what's happening); the "sex" scene in the cabin involves a shot of Peter Graves' hand on Lita Milan's back between shots of pounding waves; the "violence" involves a quickie shot of an axe protuding from Tim Carey's back after the climactic fight with Peter Graves (no wonder Peter Graves would rather be remembered for "Mission: Impossible."). Tim Carey is at his slimy best, but the movie really sucks. Oh, and Jonathan Haze looking like he's on some drug...pass on this one.
