Viewing Notes

Paul mentioned this the other day so I decided to give it a spin again since I’ve mostly forget it (actually didn’t even recall seeing it until I saw I logged it here). I can hear the pitch to Cannon Films for this movie, a perfect awful title for Golan Globus.

I love that Dick Miller has a cameo as a trash collector bc of course he does.

Not sure how I rated this a 6/10 on that previous viewing. This is a 4 at best but I give it a half star bump for Oliver Reed being totally game and earnest in this ridiculous film.
