Too Much Action Off Screen
4 August 2016 | by Michael_ElliottSee all my reviews

The Love Cult (1966)

* 1/2 (out of 4)

A TV Magician grows tired of the smaller and smaller paychecks so he decides to open up a "Love Cult" where people will turn over their hard earned money for some good time with beautiful ladies.

THE LOVE CULT is another film that was rescued by Something Weird Video and no matter how great or awful a film is, they all deserve to be saved so we can be very grateful to that company and their founder. With that said, this film has to be seen as a disappointment because it should have been so much better.

Director Barry Mahon was cranking out countless exploitation pictures back in the day so he certainly knew what he was doing. The problem with this film is that most of the "action" takes place off the screen so more times than not the stuff you're wanting to see can't be seen and that makes sitting through the boring dialogue and narration even harder.
