This s..t is s ..t
11 December 2012 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I was always wondering if I'd ever see this movie, that was actually a cult movie from '75. It's title so befits this movie. Apart from Buffy Down Under which was intolerable viewing, this is the worst Aussie film I've ever seen. It's one of the most disappointing movies I've ever seen too, it's cover like the one for Buffy Down Under is the best thing about it. Dig the syringe that replaces the I in S..t. It's about drug culture in the 70's. It's flat, boring, and repellent. I rather watch Palm Beach, honestly, a much better movie on this subject. I'll never watch this one again, and would swear it on an oath. If it popped up on t.v. I couldn't change the channel fast enough. Do yourself a favor, take note of what I've written. You may just find yourself revisiting the DVD shop and asking for a refund. And this advice, goes a thousand times over for Buffy. Abominable.
