I just got back from watching this mondo-horror classic at The Bloor Cinema in lovely (but chilly) downtown Toronto, as part of a Fangoria B-Movie Festival Double Feature Night. I've been reading about this movie for ages, and I have the 2006 Grindhouse Deluxe Uncensored Director's Cut on my must-get list, but I jumped at a chance to see it just as the drive-in/grindhouse audiences did 40 years ago.
To paraphrase a particularly trigger-happy law-enforcement officer in the flick, "Well, what can you say? The poor bastards are probably better off dead!" Short plot outline: LSD-shooting Satanic cult meets violent redneck hardhats, then everybody gets rabies! No-one thinks of taking the infected to a hospital for shots, because the local veterinarian proclaims "It's hopeless!" Starring nobody memorable except the insanely beautiful young Lynn Lowry. Really, i can't go further without ruining the enjoyment of seeing this cult classic which, trust me on this, deserves its reputation. Just remember - it's only a movie, and it's OK to laugh at torture, dismemberment and shaving cream lips! This was a digital screening of the nice restored print, with perfect audio, and some slight scratches (possible left intentionally for that authentic look.) This is all good because the unexpectedly good photography, loopy but interesting direction, and even the oddly effective primitive synth score (especially the one or two-note "going crazy" cues) deserves it.
P.S. Never mind swords and shotguns, just don't be without your garden hose!
