A pure piece of the 60's
2 May 2000 | by (Cyberspace) – See all my reviews

It is a shame that older small movies (low budget, small box office, "B" movies) rarely climb out of the "attic" and back into availability as VHS or DVD selections.

This was a classic "teen flick" cheaply produced to maximize profit, but it was a bit of a surprise hit. It even produced a sequel.

The music by Chad Stuart show his startling creativity and promise of a career that never materialized.

I only wish it were readily available.
