A film that lives up to its title, 14 August 2007
Author: TheMarquisDeSuave from Worcester, MA

H.G. Lewis has made some bizarre films, but none more bizarre than this one. Yep, its even more out there than "The Wizard of Gore". Its certainly not his most entertaining film and definitely not the best starting place for this unique exploitation filmmaker, but the occasional bits of camp surrealism that prefigured his other films is on full drive here. Its not a gore picture or one of his sexploitation films. In fact, there's really nothing here that would get anything more than a PG rating from the MPAA, outside of maybe the LSD sequence. Still, its truly something weird. And yes, the single greatest video company ever did take their name and logo from this.

As usual with H.G. Lewis films, its really poorly made. Lewis was a great showman but never an accomplished director, and just like most of his films this often drags. The acting alternates between being wooden and over-the-top, the "logic" none existent, and when viewed on close inspection, the reasoning behind the characters actions becomes almost surreal. Still, no one goes into these films expecting Orson Welles, and this delivers plenty of cheap thrills. The fact that its also so damn bizarre makes it even better. Plus, Elizabeth Lee is possibly the best looking actress ever in a Lewis film, which is saying a good deal. The more I see of these acid exploitation films, the more I can't get enough of them. (6/10)
