The Child (1976)
  Probably my favorite SWV movie, a weird no-budget evil-kid/zombie flick with atmostphere to spare and suprising moments of gore. Also features 1964 island zombie thriller I EAT YOUR SKIN, which is kinda fun but not much else.
Axe (1977)
  Also features wonderfully awful southern drive-in grime opera THE ELECTRIC CHAIR.
Hitchhike to Hell/Kidnapped Coed (1978)
  AXE and COED are both directed by Fredrick Friedel, a very visually talented director with an almost Kubrickian mise-en-scene, but alas these two no-budgeters are his only movies,but both are great . HITCHIKE is terrific though very depressing sleaze.
Touch of Her Flesh/The Curse of Her Flesh/The Kiss of Her Flesh (1967)
Not Rated
  The masterpieces of New York sexploitation roughies. The Findlays take a disreputable genre and transform it into great art. Seriously! I'm not kidding!
Basket Case (1982)
Not Rated
  Frank Henenlotter's low-budget gore-comedy classic is atypical for a SWV release in that it is somewhat better known than most of their titles. But its grimey, twitsted nature is right up their alley nonetheless. If you haven't seen it, rent it now!
The Amazing Transplant (1970)
Not Rated
  Bizarre, incoherent, sleazy nonesense. A true classic of great "bad" movies.
The Curious Dr. Humpp (1967)
Not Rated
  Something weird, indeed! Something very, very weird. How many South American Sci-Fi Nudie Noirs do you know of? Well, now you know of at least one. Utterly brilliant!
Blood Freak (1972)
Not Rated
  A truly horrible film. But it's a horrible film about a burned up Veitnam Vet Christian drug addict who becomes a blood drinking Turkey-headed monster! Amazing! Disc also feature the astonishing 'skin-noir' THE WALLS HAVE EYES, great stuff.
Doctor Gore (1972)
  Now this is bad-movie making at its demented best! HG Lewis compatriot JG Patterson directs this gory and twisted frankenstien riff, which features sly humor, cheap grue-effects and amazingly inept plot-holes and technical gaffs. Enjoy!
Two Girls for a Madman / Mr. Mari's Girls / Tortured Females (2004)
Not Rated
  Two great NY roughies here, but the real story is the rural roughie TORTURED, which is one of the most jaw-droppingly bizarre, demented films you will ever lay eyes on. "Half-witted monkey-chattering Mongolian Hunchback". That's all I have to say.
The Zodiac Killer/The Sex Killer/Zero In And Scream (1971)
Not Rated
  A great sleazy serial killer triple feature. ZODIAC is the best, and weirdest, of the bunch, but the other two are no slouches either.
The Thirsty Dead/Swamp of the Ravens (1974)
  THIRSTY is pretty much a waste of time, but SWAMP is simply astonishing. Made in Ecuador and stinking of third-world poverty and filth, SWAMP is an unbelievably odd and creepy horror film. With real autopsy footage!
The Toy Box/Toys Are Not For Children (1971)
Not Rated
  You'll want to take a long shower with your clothes on muttering to yourself, "bad touch, bad touch" after viewing this double feature. BOX is a surreal sci-fi softcore cerebrum sizzler, while CHILDREN is a sleazy Electra-complex themed grime opera.
Mantis in Lace (1968)
Not Rated
  Featuring lush photography by the great Lazlo Kovacs, a groovy pop-soundtrack, great Sunset Strip locations, beautiful strippers and mind-blowing LSD feakouts/bloody murder scenes. What more could you ask for?
The Naked Witch/Crypt of Dark Secrets (1964)
Not Rated
  Two great/terrible southern drive-in "horror" flicks. Strange, creepy and horribly acted regional exploitation fun!
Godmonster of Indian Flats (1973)
Not Rated
  Probably the most disapointing SWV movie I've seen, but still features interesting moments of b-movie visual poetry and entirly ineffective social commentary. Also features rural roughie rarity THE GIRL AND THE GEEK,which is pretty bad, but still fun.
Atomic Brain/Love After Death/The Incredible Petrified World (1964)
Not Rated
  My least favorite, but these are still more entertaining than most movies made today. LOVE AFTER DEATH is really, really strange though and sometimes very cool and sometimes very, very bad.
The Notorious Concubines (1969)
  A new contender for Most Disapointing SWV Movie. I've tried to watch this one twice now and was bored to tears both times. For every beautifully composed poetic image there is some hastily composed crap fight scenes or awkward dialoge. Eh, feh.
Swamp Girl/Swamp Country (1966)
Not Rated
  Now this was a real charmer. GIRL esp. is a regional PG rated drive-in winner, with some suprisingly sleazy moments and violence thrown in here and there for good measure. With Ferlin Husky! COUNTRY is not as good, but entertaining nontheless.
The Defilers/Scum of the Earth (1965)
Not Rated
  Two terrific Dave Friedman roughies here. DEFILERS is the uncontested winner here and while lacking the delirious feverdream quality of the FLESH trilogy its still a whopping punch in the gut (or maybe slap on the ass?) SCUM rules too, though not as much
Bowanga Bowanga/Wild Women Of Wongo/Virgin Sacrifice (1959)
Not Rated
  Good dumb fun. Racist? Yes. Sexist? Sure. Incoherent? You bet! But I liked 'em anyway. VIRGIN is the best, BOWANGA is sooooo stupid and loony ya can't help but love it.
Booby Trap/The Takers (1973)
  Hard one to judge. Both movies have really cool moments esp. TAKERS but both suffer horrible moments of repetative softcore boredom, which severly limits their enjoyability. Worth seeing though if you like low-budget 70s sleaze. I know I do!
Johnny Firecloud/Bummer! (1973)
  This is one of the best. FIRECLOUD is an outstanding WALKING TALL-BILLY JACK riff with some subtle and unusual character develepment and a great ending. BUMMER I thought was going to be terrible but it won me over by the end. Worst movie rock band ever!
Confessions of a Psycho Cat (1968)
Not Rated
  Amazing and totally insane Z-grade NY roughie! This is fast becoming my favorite movie genre of all time. Features an aging Jake LaMotta! Also features the horrible rural roughie HOT BLOODED WOMAN. The less said about it the better.
