Hilariously Vulgar Parody of JAWS
6 May 2005 | by (Georgia) – See all my reviews

I bought a copy of this long out-of-print movie on the old Adult Video Corporation (AVC) label for a tidy sum just to get a hold of it un-censored. The box and tape were still in very nice condition despite being manufactured long ago (in 1979).

I watched GUMS right after receiving it in the mail and was "treated" to a insane parody of JAWS featuring horny puppets, a Mermaid who blows men to death (and in one case sticks her head out of a toilet) and a Nazi lunatic played by Brother Theodore who volunteers to capture the Mermaid for oil wells instead of money. Theodore has the "Captain Quint" role in this exercise in sea-going vulgarity. Richard Bolla looks a lot like Richard Dreyfuss and carries around a blonde blow-up doll for amusement. You must see this movie to disbelieve it. Lots of underwater photography of the naked mermaid (Terri Hall) swimming around, but watch out for those lust-mad puppets! Long-delayed edit here: The 'AVC' version of the movie does not have the cartoony stuff obscuring the h/c action, of which there really isn't much of.
