Fredric Hobbs Cult Hero

We all know of Ed Wood and John Waters. Some know HG Lewis or Al Adamson. Not too many people have seen cheap films by Andy Milligan or Ted V. Mikels. If you've seen Andy Warhol it was probably in school. Here's the new kid on the scene, Fredric Hobbs. I have seen alot of bad movies that are good.I've only seen a few that were honestly GREAT BADFILMS. This is one of the best. It stars Chris Brooks(look up his career it will amaze you how successful he became)who stars as "Alambama". Alabama is a stage manager at the nightclub "Earthquake Magoons" who discovers a hidden chamber under the nightclub. Alambama stumbles onto the tomb of "Carter the Great", a stage magician from the 20's. Alabama dresses as Carter and becomes certain that he could be a magician as well. What Alabama doesn't know is that Carter the great was developing a substance called "Raw Zeta". Zeta looks like hashish and is refered to as "Cartoon Khaki". Raw Zeta refined gave Carter complete control of people electronically. Sound weird yet? O.K., here we go. Jazz bands, dope smoking transvestite vampires,voodoo ceremonies, Hip Lingo,greedy Scottish rock promoters,motorcycle races,hippies and more hippies, and last,parading Elephants and a vampire smorgasboard. need I say more except please put this on DVD! I only have an Elvira Chiller Theater VHS of it.
