Perhaps the most outrageous of cult director Doris Wishman's many forays into the sexploitation genre, this film begins with a nude woman playing a zither and just gets more bizarre from there. The woman's boyfriend, Arthur (Juan Fernandez) tries to have sex with her, but his fury at his own impotence drives him to strangle her to death. Arthur eventually receives a transplant of a dying playboy's estimable penis, but that doesn't stop his killing spree. Rape, murder, and lesbianism are the featured attractions in this horrific low-budget roughie, which features an early softcore appearance by porn legend Kim Pope. Wishman returned with The Immoral Three (1970). ~ Robert Firsching, All Movie Guide

Surrealist Kitsch by JAuner January 4, 2005 - 11:06 AM PST

OK, so I watched The Amazing Transplant, and I've seriously got to say it must be some kind of cracked masterpiece. Perhaps more through basic cinematic ineptitude than any kind of coherent vision, Transplant (and I'm guessing Wishman's entire oevure), achieves effortlessly a kind of haphazard surrealism that a thousand Lynch-inspired film students probably aspire to but couldn't even come close to. A seeming inability to point the camera at someone while they're talking during dialoge scenes, the strange random shots of inanimate objects, carpet and weirdest of all a strange obsession with shooting peoples' feet, the non-acting, the dubbing, all these things, qualities which by themselves might equal 'bad movie', instead here add up to something greater than the sum of it creaky parts. Wishman, I think, has created a work of surrealist art nearly the equal to a Cocteau or a Bunuel, without even trying.

Watch this and expect to laugh. I don't think it tries to be serious which is its best asset. Great for mixed company and alcohol.

The story goes something like this. A guy gets a penis transplant from his dead friend for no apparent reason. He goes crazy when he sees a girl with gold earrings and attacks her. Okay, well that does not explain why this is considered a slasher flick when no one was murdered, why every weird scene was exactly the same reenactment just with a different girl, or why the camera work was so shoddy I found myself staring into the back of the guy's head and, yes, even a pimpled ass crack. I gave it a 2 because the premise could have made a decent movie if they actually put an effort in. Bonus points if you guys can figure out why he needed a new penis in the first place.
