Damn You EViL SHaNTY TRaMP !!!!
25 January 2005 | by CelluloidRehabSee all my reviews

Somewhere in the generic South, is a town. This town has everything from a lecherous, greedy preacher, to the town drunk and from a motorcycle gang to bootleggers. This movie is an exploitation movie. Its not a very good one, however. But it does manage to exploit everything "southern".

Emily is the town whore. She whores it up real good. If she's not hitting on the preacher or making out with random bikers (bikers with names like Savage and Rat), she's having sex with Daniel (the only black man in town, who lives with his mother) and causing all kinds of evil. You know Emily is an evil sort, from the opening scene. With the song "While the Saints Go Marching On", she staggers drunkenly through town hitting on men and putting out matches before people can light their cigarettes (truly evil). Her father, the town drunk, abuses and beats her. There are racist police around. A posse is formed. Hooch is produced. A lot of scheming goes on, with the soundtrack being jazzy beatnik. There's also an insanely long crazy 60's rock/beatnik dancing sequence at the "bar". Truly horrifying.

The dialog is atrocious in this movie. For example, a scene between Savage the biker leader and Emily goes something like this :

Emily : "Come on big man. You promised me a fin. I wanna see it."

Savage : "Shut up baby and put out."

The truly classic lines belong to Savage (solo). Lines like :

"I'm so dry I can drink root beer." ; "Dance goddamn it. Dance !! Can't you hear the music ??!!"

I would only recommend this movie for communal drunk watching. By the way, this movie had the worst stabbing by a topless woman EVER !!!
