Frederic Hobbs...freaking freely.
16 December 2007 | by (fabulous Las Vega$!) – See all my reviews

Frederic Hobbs, a famously reclusive film industry dissenter, upreared a brief syllabus of titles during his 70s-era tenure...movies so waywardly absonant and creatively impulsive that only a highly preferential entente is likely to ardently apprize them. Case in point...ALABAMA'S GHOST.

The demented story(which is overdeveloped to Rube Golberg proportions) concerns Alabama, a San Francisco jazz club employee, who discovers by mere chance the hidden bounty of a legendary magician. Among the relics is an experimental Nazi drug confection which has been long sought-after by a groovy underbelly society of rock-music industry vampires. These creatures of the night learn of Alabama's discovery, and devise a scheme to make him an unwitting gambit in their sinister world domination plot.

As is case with the director's other projects, ALABAMA'S GHOST exhibits surprisingly streamlined professionalism for such barmy, capricious material. The film presents well-defined characters, solid performances, and acceptable effects for the time. To think that genuine erudition and skill were applied to this kaleidoscopic hash-dream is mystifying...but maverick 'metteur en scene' Hobbs did it again with GODMONSTER OF Indian FLATS, an equally nonrepresentational and surprisingly well-crafted celluloid freakshow.

A most exotic truffle, though enjoyable to only the most...um...distinguished palates.

6/10
