This is why we love the 80's
25 April 2004 | by (Northern California2) – See all my reviews

I found this video in a stack of soon to be Goodwill donations. I watched it that night and actually became quite a fan of this extremely low budget classic. I think the acting is terrible, but you can tell that they used probably locals and ex- moon shine runners to play leading charachters. These people arent acting - there just actually being them selves. The score is a hilarious 4 track recording out of someones basement, and the camera and editing work look like some of the stuff i did in highschool for class projects. I look at this movie as a time capsule piece that states where independant film makers were at that time. Only in the pre 90's could you get away with such corny material. But that is why we love the 80's.
