Another lost drive-in classic that screams the 70s.
24 June 2005 | by edinmanSee all my reviews

I mostly agree with The Hoyt's review except where he says initially that "this is not a very good movie" and that Arthur Marks had "low standards." Marks was, IMO, an underrated exploitation master and "The Roommates," while perhaps not as good overall as "Bonnie's Kids" or some of his other films, is nonetheless a great, lost drive-in classic that screams the 70's.

The 70s hair. The clothes. The beauty. The music. The drama. The sex. The murder. The comedy.

It's all there, in ample proportions. If only my summer jobs during college were half as exciting (LOL).

Entertaining and worth seeking out at any cost for fans of the genre.
