Storyline

Odette Springer is working in the B movie industry as a singer/composer, hating it but needing the work. She begins making this documentary about the low budget sex and slasher flicks and the people who work on them. Along the way, she meets unrepentantly boorish producers, directors arguing the legitimacy of what they're doing and numerous actresses who feel trapped, with no other way to succeed in Hollywood. The project is eye-opening to the viewer...and to Odette herself. Written by Michael "Rabbit" Hutchison <rabhutch@mn.mediaone.net>

Some Negativity Required?
2 April 2000 | by vj-66See all my reviews

I think this documentary only focuses on the negative side of the b-movie industry.I don't think there is anything wrong with these movies but I know some people with disagree with that. I collect alot of B-movies/exploitation movies from the 70's to the present that's why I rented this documentary. I won't lie I did feel a bit guilty after viewing this because it seemed like it was targeting men in general, because guys like me rent or buy this kind of thing.How am I different than any other guy? How many guys don't like to look at beautiful women? Believe it or not I do respect these women who act in these kind of movies.I have met Brinke Stevens and a few other scream queens in person. I thought they were very nice people as well as being beautiful women. I have nothing against Odette Springer or Maria Ford,if they want out of the business good for them. In alot of ways I don't think mainstream hollywood is any better,sex is a commodity no matter where you go. I happen to like Fred Olen Ray's & Jim Wynorski's movies,does that make me a bad guy? It shouldn't but there are alot of closed minded people out there who only understand what the hell is really going on in the world.If you like b-movies like so many people do ,you may want to see this just for your own piece of mind. I wouldn't let it influence your opinion of these movies. All I can say is see this documentary and decide for yourself.Remember one thing sex & violence will not disappear in our society it hasn't yet. You can't blame movies for the worlds problems, you have a brain use it.To all the b-movie director/producers out there,Keep Up The Good Work!!
