other oddball shorts and exploitation art,
plus two movies called "The Girl and the
Geek", and "The Godmonster of Indian Flats"
|It is a guy in a head mask, a strange
dark shirt, baggy black pants, and his Willie hanging out. One of the
girls tries to make friends, and Geek strips her, then does it to her
doggy style, after which he throws the three guys to the ground
repeatedly until they get tired of getting up, then walks off into the
sunset. There were no credits in the film, but IMDB identifies a Lynn
Holmes as in the cast, and she has other credits that indicate to me
she was a porn actress.
If anyone can confirm that it is her,
let me know. At any rate, this girl shows bush, breasts, and buns.
This is seriously twisted material, and explains how Something Weird
video got its name. If the aim of film is entertainment, then this was
a success, as I was entertained. I doubt of 1 in 20 is as
twisted as I am, however.
General consensus: three
stars. Ebert 3/4, Berardinelli 3/4,
summary. Eight articles on file
- With their
dollars ... it wasn't a smash, hit, but
it took in $21 million domestic on a $13
million budget. It maxed out at just less
than 2000 screens. It was really kind of
an underperformer when you consider the
positive reception from critics and
guideline: 7.5 usually indicates a level of
excellence, about like three and a half stars
from the critics. 6.0 usually indicates lukewarm
watchability, about like two and a half stars
from the critics. The fives are generally not
worthwhile unless they are really your kind of
material, about like two stars from the critics.
Films under five are generally awful even if you
like that kind of film, equivalent to about one
and a half stars from the critics or less,
depending on just how far below five the rating
guideline: A means the movie is so good it
will appeal to you even if you hate the genre. B means the movie is not
good enough to win you over if you hate the
genre, but is good enough to do so if you have an
open mind about this type of film. C means it will only
appeal to genre addicts, and has no crossover
appeal. D means you'll hate it even if you
like the genre. E means that you'll hate it even if
you love the genre. F means that the film is not only
unappealing across-the-board, but technically
inept as well.
Based on this
description, I say F, but in the best possible way.
