2 October 2007 | by (the Draconian Swamp of Unholy Souls) – See all my reviews

Zebedy Colt really ought to have named his film "The Candy Bar Killer", instead. "Unwilling Lovers" is a good title, but it sounds too poetic and pseudo-intellectual for something that is basically just a no-budget 70's porn movie. Besides, the title isn't even that accurate. The 'lovers' are either dead (oh yes, there's necrophilia!) or … willing. The Candy Bar Killer would have been better because it captures the silly and grotesque atmosphere of the film much more. Anyways, I concur with my fellow reviewers around here in claiming that "Unwilling Lovers" is a rare 70's gem with some pretty twisted and sick-spirited story lines as well as an overload of graphic XXX-action. Writer/director Zebedy Colt granted himself the leading role, and he isn't too ashamed to show off his manliness, as the mentally handicapped redneck son Timmy. Considering his mental condition, I can't help being reminded of the demented South Park character with the same name, you know the boy who can't do anything except shout out his own name. Timmy lives in an isolated countryside mansion with his wheelchair bound mother, an exaggeratedly well-hung gardener and a housekeeper who's a bit of a S.L.U.T. Timmy spends a lot of time observing people having sex and then re-enacting what he saw, only his interpretation of foreplay is to murder them first. Although not realizing it, he always leaves a wrapping of his favorite candy bar next to his victims' corpses, and the police and media quickly nickname him the Candy Bar Killer. The first couple of killings are an exciting murder of sex and violence, but the film rapidly just focuses on depicting hardcore pornography. By the time of the third murder, we just witness a couple having sex followed by Timmy storming at them with a sneering smile on his face and the picture then immediately cuts to a newspaper headline announcing "Another Candy Bar Killing". There's few gore or bloodshed on display, presumably due to the lack of budget, but the tone of the film is often disturbing and sick. The idea of sexually provoking a mentally unstable person and luring into a threesome is rather perverted and socially incorrect, but at the same time it's one of the most efficient sequences in the film. The acting performances are surprisingly decent and convincing, especially Colt's depiction of the eerie retard. The adult content is stimulating as long as you remain aware of the fact this is a 70's effort, meaning the men & women are excessively haired and rather chubby. Hard to find, but worth tracing if you're interested in this sort of crazy stuff. Timmaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay!
