Movies like this intrigue me
8 August 2002 | by See all my reviews

This movie was released in 1965. The acting, for the most part, is pretty bad. Some of the girls sound like they are from other countries. The director liked to let the camera roll for long periods of time with only occasional edits. There are almost no close-ups in the movie. It is extremely low budget as well as extremely 1960s. Shot in color but with a minimum of locations used. The beast is some guy in a gorilla suit. The girls have to keep their vaginas covered at all times. The faces are cute and the breasts are silicon-free. In some cases the buns are a little flabbier than what you'd find in the current crop of nudie cutie movies. I don't think some of the prettier girls seen topless in indoor shots are ever seen walking around the campground naked, though many other girls are. There is a blonde who bears a passing resemblance with a young Linda Evans and a brunette who has a couple of scenes on the phone that I would have liked to have seen more exposed for our viewing pleasure.

Movies like this intrigue me. I want to know what theaters they played in (even if there's a Wal-Mart or a Home Depot at the location now). I want to know what happened to the people appearing in this movie. I want to know how they got involved with this production. I want to know where the producer had his office (I mean the exact room). I want to know what sort of profit it made upon release (if it even did make a profit). I want to know all the sordid details about a production such as this one.
