stupid piece of trash!!
4 October 1999 | by (Gophertown USA) – See all my reviews

THE MOST IDIOTIC CRUD I'VE EVER SEEN IN MY LIFE!!! This movie is so bad, it'll make you want to smash it into pieces. on the box, it says it was made in 1970! yeah right!! try 1964, in mexico. 0 out of 4. Big time loser!! Since it was not rated by the MPAA, i gave it a G for silly violence that's not as bad as Hunchback of Notre Dame, which is the biggest rating violater of all time!!!

AVOID AT ALL COSTS.....even if your store only sells it for a penny.

Jonathan Yates (yes, the screenwriter)
