someone's blown more than a fuse...
26 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Oh God! The tawdry awfulness of this expose of Urban strip clubs and dim shady sex in back-rooms....Australian style...and worse still, from the early 70s..........yecch. I too saw this film on first release (Noel, was that YOU?) and have lived to tell the tale. Made for about $3 on 16mm film and enlarged for exhibition, I would not be amazed to see this hilarious booby horror get a reissue today and be more successful than it was 30 years ago. The whole film looks like those bad sex movie re creations in BOOGIE NIGHTS..the ones that starred Chest Brockman and Dirk Diggler leaping over cars and being daring and sexy in plaid flared pants and platform shoes. Mostly filmed in Melbourne it features ghastly flabby white pimply chicks with tubby mustachioed guys getting it off for this fake doco purporting to tell us all how naughty these swingers are. One scene involving a boiled egg (it was peeled, I could tell) and a really hairy, um, you know, had us all choking and howling then...today's 20 somethings would just shriek more at how ugly everyone is IN their hilarious horror 70s fashions. Not made as a porno..we didn't make them ..but released commercially as a risqué feature it screened in many respectable cinemas and was a big drive in success probably with ALVIN RIDES AGAIN or something equally Oz- awful. Of course we all loved it. I am sure cult DVD awareness awaits. Kids today would just scream with laughter.
