11 Silver: The History of The Hooked Generation, 20 April 2011
Author: Tromafreak from Tallahassee, Florida

Despite being incredibly low-budget, and not too well-thought-out, William Grefe, once again, graces us with yet another one of his entertaining Exploitation epics, without seemingly trying all that hard. In the world of vintage B-movies, you either got it, or you don't. And this guy's certainly got it. But for the record, this is really, really bad movie. Meet Daisy, Acid, and Dumb Dumb. Three small-time drug dealers with a combined I.Q. of 73, and three matching mean-streaks, aspire to be, you guessed it, big-time drug dealers. Now, there's plenty of dim-witted bad guys out there who are competent enough to do what they need to do to get what they need to get, but these guys are all "heavily medicated" on top of everything else. The unlikeable trio are at least bright enough to figure out that it's much cheaper to just murder the Cubans who were nice enough to deliver the drugs, and that away, there's nobody to pay... Genius! And so begins the killing. Why stop there? There's the Coast Guard guys. Why not just kill them, too? You can see where I'm going with this. Not much of a drug movie at all. more of an example as to why drug-addicts make lousy fugitives. But mostly, just a movie about a bunch of unlikeable people with guns. Which is a quality a lot of people like, so, we'll see. But if you're ever in the mood for a real drug movie, maybe you'd like to check out another William Grefe film, my personal favorite Grefe film, called Electric Shades Of Grey. In fact, these 2 films appear on the same DVD as a double feature from Something Weird Video. So, I guess you're all set. And considering all the trailers and other extras on this DVD, The Hooked Generation is a must-own for fans of Exploitation. Sorry. I mean Drugsploitation! 7/10
