  • Sitting through the film is like Chinese water torture, for sure, and for reasons beyond the forced, idiotic campiness of the thing. For one thing, there is not one word of dialogue. show more

  • Presumably Zane & Co. had a lot more fun filming this inexplicable low-budget indulgence than any sane person will have watching it. show more

  • An amazing artifact; the decor and lighting mix '70s tackiness with odd '50s touches, the sound design is elaborate. show more
