“You dirty, filthy pig! So, I belong with the freaks, huh? I’ll fix you so even the freaks won’t look at you!”
A carnival gypsy (Brett O’Hara) hypnotizes a teenager (Cash Flagg) and turns him into a killer zombie. Meanwhile, his girlfriend Angela (Sharon Walsh) and friend Harold (Atlas King) try to find out why Flagg is acting so strangely.
Genres, Themes, Actors, and Directors:
- Carnivals and Circuses
- Hypnosis and Mind Control
This wackily-titled exploitation flick by low-budget director Ray Dennis Steckler (a.k.a. “Cash Flagg”) is one truly awful film: it’s got terrible acting, laughable costumes, a nonsensical storyline, and insufferable musical “interludes” which have nothing to do with the main plot. With that said, TISCWSLABMUZ/TSMBM (yes, that’s the title’s acronym!) is ripe for satire; if you do decide to check it out, rent the inspired MST3K (Mystery Science Theater 3000) version to make your viewing experience at least tolerable.
Redeeming Qualities and Moments:
- The preposterously amateurish performance sequences
- Plenty of unintentional opportunities for relentless spoofing
No, though film fanatics may be curious to see one film by notorious cult director Steckler, and (if so) this one should probably be it.
