Who was this film trying to appeal?
19 June 2000 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This is an odd film. It starts out as what looks like to be two friends and a girl they share going up to a cabin with other "rich, have's" in a place to check out their ancestors time capsule, as the "haves" then crash with the local bikers and the caretaker Jack Warden. When the lead "shoots" Warden wounding him, he and the bikers decides to terrorize the "haves" like tar and feathering them, and you would think it would become an action film, but then it does a complete 180 and becomes a orgy film! Even for that time period, this film couldn't have appealed to hippies, or bikers, or radicals, or even filmgoers of 1971. Perhaps someone could release this on DVD, and have the director and writer do an audio commentary, then it might make sense to all this boredom. The titles theme is very catchy and haunting however, and I am glad I found the soundtrack 17 years ago! Great tune that'll last with you for a long time.
