black alley pussies
28 January 2009 | by (Midian) – See all my reviews

Well well, this one was told to be lost and OOP. Until it came out on VHS in Greece. So I had to hunt down a copy and caught one, English spoken with Greece subtitles. But still it's a hard one to find. Used to be played in the grindhousecircuit. So you already know it is going to be sleazy. Call it even an exploitation, just not a sexploitation. The movie takes 81 minutes to watch and let's say 79 minutes of the movie a naked chick is walking around. It was advertised that it would be a revengemovie but no it isn't. It's all about having sex in all ways. Sometimes really getting funny. When the raped girls go for revenge they call them self the Black Alley Cats, walking around in some leather jackets and one girl just have panties on, nothing else underneath. Wouldn't you be surprised to have been robbed that way. There is no blood at all, even that one of the girls has been hit by a bullet. The acting is, in an exploitation way, but the filming and editing is really good, the sound is bad, you really have to listen very well to understood the Cats. There has been said a lot about this flick, watch it if you can catch it, you really will have a laugh sometime and you also will notice that it was made pre-AIDS. A typical flick of that era. And remember, be aware of the bushes...
