Storyline

This is the story of two apprentices who know more than their mentors. One is Kasper, who discovers the Hidan of Maukbeiangjow, to where six girls have been abducted. He is apprentice to Sam Trowel, whom Fred refers to as "private pig," an independent investigator who gets his mission information through a time-delay self-destruct tape (that is a parody of Mission: Impossible). The other is Prudence, a Christian spiritualist who is an apprentice to a wizard named Aph. Aph has had the impudence to use vodoun rituals to possess corpses with demonic earth spirits, or the spirits of extraterrestrials summoned from the Red Star galaxy. Fred and Junior tie up Prudence and a zombified girl named Rosebush while an alien learning to use the body of Ruthie, one of Trowel's operatives, keeps Kasper tied up while she guards whom she calls "the Prudence." The first alien brought by Aph eventually takes Trowel's body. He is intent to use Fred's safe-cracking skills to destroy evidence of his ... Written by Scott Andrew Hutchins <scottandrewh@home.com>

Worst Title Ever?

The Hidan of Maukbeiangjow (1973)

1/2 (out of 4)

This here has one of the worst titles in film history and it's easy to see why it was changed to INVASION OF THE GIRL SNATCHERS for its VHS release, which to date is the only release it's had on home video. The film is, I think, a spoof of various types of films from the drive-in era. A couple men kidnap beautiful women for some nutty preacher type. This group then runs into some female alien cult leaders (or something to that effect. THE HIDAN OF MAUKBEIANGJOW is a really, really bad film but apparently it's gained a cult following over the years, which means you're either going to hate it or fall for it. I will admit that it does have a certain Southern charm going for it but sadly the thing just drags on way too long and has way too many long dialogue scenes that are just downright boring and slow. Director Lee Jones is probably best remembered for working as a producer for several films by William Girdler. Apparently this film was shot using the same equipment and some of the same locations as Girdler's 3 ON A MEAT HOOK. Either way, this film here just never overcomes it's low-budget nature and even a funny opening song can't save it. In all reality the performances aren't too bad and I think Jones could have directed something. The biggest fault is without question the story that just tries to be clever but never really is. It also can't overcome the incredibly boring and long stretches where nothing is happening.
