User Reviews

Come on it's 1969. 69 Let's go.
29 November 2008 | by lastliberalSee all my reviews

Now, this is the first sexploitation/grindhouse film that I thought worth paying money to see.

I can imagine a whole theater full of men in white overcoats getting a thrill from this feature which had full frontal throughout the entire 70 minutes.

Nude dancing and lesbian activity would have thrilled them for the first 60 minutes, then the film, which had a noir overtone, turned darker with sadistic encounters and even death.

This is the best Michael Findlay sexploitation film I have seen, and it certainly beats his video nasty Snuff.
