John Landis raised the money to make this movie from family and friends. He originally wanted to make an underground porn movie but abandoned the idea when he found out he would have to work with members of the underworld. See more »
Excuse me, Detective Sergeant Wino, I'm Joe Putzman. I was wondering if you'd like to reassure our viewing audience that this reign of terror in our town will soon be over. That these ghastly series of banana murders will soon cease. Can you tell us anything, give us one ray of hope that our streets will soon be safe to walk again?

John Landis' Schlock is interesting for anyone who is familiar with some classic movies but otherwise you may be confused or bored
After years of reading about John Landis' first, I finally got to see Schlock on YouTube. There were some pretty funny scenes like that reporter's plugging a dinner prize for anyone who can guess the number of bodies in a bag or his different descriptions of the movie See You Next Wednesday which is a title always mentioned or displayed on a poster in a Landis film. Or another scene in a movie theatre involving a woman with big hair. But if you want things to make sense, this movie is definitely not for you. In fact, unless you've seen some other classic movies like King Kong or Love Story, you won't get some of the lines at the end. Overall, Schlock is interesting and somewhat entertaining but you might have to be familiar with some of the other classic movies it references in order to really enjoy it. P.S. This was a Jack H. Harris Production as evidenced by other Harris films displayed in clips here, Dinosaurus and The Blob, the Steve McQueen version.
