For The Obscure Cult Film Enthusiast
8 March 2008 | by drumfastdieyoungSee all my reviews

I can only echo the observations on how poor every aspect of the movie is production-wise. However, if you're a fan of cult films like myself, you'll enjoy watching this. (And the soundtrack is pretty darn good,too.)

Ray Dennis Steckler stars in his own movie under his pseudonym "Cash Flagg".

The actors, lines, and scenes are forgettable.

However, you will not soon forget the movie itself.

I can bring myself to give this movie 8 stars for sheer historical/cult entertainment value.

Check it out if you have time.
