A Rapetastic Rollercoaster of Movie!!! FOUR STARS!!!
2 April 2002 | by (Seattle, Washington) – See all my reviews

This movie, like many low budget movies I've seen from the seventies, revolves around rape. Rape, rape, rape. I don't see how they find time to pack more rape in there, what with all the raping going on, but that Kerwin fellow manages to find room. I don't know about you, gentle reader, but personally I don't find movies drenched in rape to be my cup of tea (Rape Squad excluded of course). If you can look past the giant heaps of rape going on in this movie, you may find a couple funny, if not intentional, lines. At one point the cops are questioning some drunkard that they have picked up that claims to have witnessed one of the thirty-six HUNDRED rapes that goes on, but he won't talk until they give him booze. So finally the main cop gives him a drink, which the witness happily guzzles down. This makes one of the cops wonder out loud, "how can he drink that stuff?!" to which the main cop replies, "If you grow up eating shit, you think it's ice cream." I don't know about you, but I can tell when I hear good dialogue, and that was some GOOD DIALOGUE. There's also a funny part where Chris Mulkey, our "hero" of the movie, gets assaulted by the Rape Gang with an ice cream cone to the face! How savage! RAPE! It just occurred to me that there is some sort of ice cream theme running through this movie, but I refuse to even spend another second thinking about it.
