Mondo "info-tainment" -- So awful it's good.
28 March 2005 | by aodugoSee all my reviews

This movie was awful but SO entertaining! I chose to go and see this for my birthday -- it was free at Library of Congress -- expecting it to be a slightly bizarre documentary, but I was definitely in for a surprise. As someone who grew up watching "In Search Of..." and later was enamored of "Unsolved Mysteries" for its same "info-tainment" and "exploi-tainment" feel, I was thrilled when the movie opened with the Mondo genre's stereotypical score and narration. Sure, if you're expecting this to be a legitimate documentary or you take witchcraft and the occult seriously, you'll be disappointed; or, if you get squeamish about nudity, then this probably won't be for you. If, however, you love the sort of poor-production-quality sensationalism of things like "In Search Of..." and you love to watch 70's era-films just because the "interviewees" and actors are so over-the-top unreal, then you should love this. Keep in mind, though, that an integral part of the Mondo genre is sexploitation, so be prepared.
