60's teen sexploitation from trashmeister H.G. Lewis
6 January 2010 | by (Denver, Colorado and Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

Herschel Gordon Lewis is best known for his "gore" movies, but with the exception of "2000 Maniacs" and perhaps "The Gruesome Twosome", I find those pretty overrated. I actually like a lot his other stuff better. This sleazy trash-fest, for instance,ranks right up there with "Scum of the Earth" and "The Prime Time", but with much more overt sex and nudity since it was made in the more permissive late 60's era. A teenage girl witnesses her parents having sex, which naturally turns her into a raving nymphomaniac. She spends a lot of time slowly stripping off and admiring her body in the mirror (as the hetero male audience pants and drools). She starts seducing every guy she meets from from her square male third cousin(!) and study partner (who's initially more interested in French than frenching)to her mother's boyfriend (who she carries on with right under her mother's nose by threatening to reveal the affair to her father). She ditches school to have sex in the park with random boys and men. Of course, it all end badly.

Besides the lovable and inimitable trash stylings of H.G. Lewis, the other main asset of this movie (with emphasis on the first syllable of that word) is lead actress Julie Ames. She is very cute and appealing both in and out of her 60's blouses and mini-skirts. While I'm not sure it's a good thing, she's one of the few actresses I've ever seen that is both remotely believable as an actual teenager AND mouth-wateringly sexy (sex offenders with access to time machines should definitely be kept away from this movie). Sure, she can't act worth spit, but then neither can anyone else in this movie. Her ridiculously young-looking "mother" meanwhile is definitely NOT remotely believable as the mother of a teenager, but she's appropriately trashy and slutty. Her father, a kind of "Ward Cleaver" turned seedy swinger who is also getting some on the sly from his equally trashy secretary, is also pretty memorable.

This is genuinely enjoyable late 60's sleazefest (the end is both trashy and hilarious). Like most H.G. Lewis films it's very low-budget and certainly not a masterpiece, but it is worth sitting through.
