No asterisk: it probably sucks.

Pervert! (2005) came about the way a lot of micro-budget indy films do. Director-producer Jonathon Yudis made a decision that he was going to make a feature film and not let anything get in his way. He knew the limitations of his resources so he his college chum Mike Davis to write a script using a small cast and one location. The are both Russ Meyer fans so they created an homage to Meyer, full of large breasts. They took Russ to his next logical progression, throwing in a horror element, but the entire thing is an outrageous comedy.

A college student is to spend the summer with his dad in the desert. When he arrives, he sees dad's new playmate, Mary Carey. Something does her in, as well as dad's next hooker/companion, and junior suspects that dad is doing them in. Dad suspects junior. Dad's hobby of making meat sculpture art is certainly suspicious. Just how silly the film is becomes obvious by the identity and appearance of the actual monster.

Finally, junior decides dad needs to be locked up, and sends for nurse Juliette Clarke to evaluate his condition. She, it turns out, becomes half of the requisite girl/girls scene, and has the gumption to survive The Pervert. The film makers wanted to telegraph what kind of film this was early, hence the bogus rating screen.

The film goes out of its way to insult as many groups as possible, and does a good enough job that nobody is insulted. The DVD is given the whole treatment, with two commentaries, deleted scenes, bloopers, and trailers. This is low budget lowbrow humor, but has cult classic written all over it. Oddly, women seem to like it as much as men.

This is a C in the cult classic genre.

IMDb readers say 5.4.

Scoop's note: I'm glad that some guys are still making grade-B tittie movies which are fun to watch. There were a lot of them back in the 70s and 80s, like Hollywood Chainsaw Hookers and Return of the Living Dead, but it's hard to find an entertaining one these days. The indie producers all seem to be making either making serious dramas or horror films.

A Scream in the Streets

The Time Machine travels all the way back to 1973 for A Scream in the Streets. We feature Sharon Kelly who did both soft and hard-core flicks in the seventies and eighties often billed as Colleen Brennan for the more hard-core stuff.

Enjoy Sharon in these caps and six clips and play the "spot the tool" game.








Recently I watched some early German films on DVD. These are the images I produced.




(1943) imdb. Surprisingly good drama that kept my interest throughout, (much better than James Cameron's later soap-opera-style film). Has some nice see-throughs too.

(1943) imdb. Colorful recreation of the Munchhausen tales (and an obvious influence for Terry Gilliam's film) with some nudity too.


Der Kongress tanzt and Drei von der Tankstelle


(1931) imdb and (1930) imdb, respectively. Early musicals starring Lilian Harvey

Christine Ricci in Black Snake Moan (film clips), The first two .jpgs are just samples from the two film clips. The third one is a really hot publicity still.
The Italian film La Bestia Nel Cuore (known in English as Don't Tell) was nominated for the Oscar for best foreign film, although that came as a surprise to a lot of people, not the least of which were the Italians, who didn't even nominate it for best picture at their own academy awards! Sergio Rubini's Our Land is widely considered the best Italian film of that year, although the Donatello for Best Picture actually went to Il Caimano, about which I know nothing. Anyway, here are the women of Don't Tell:
A film clip of Niamh Cusack in Fallen Angel, a brand spankin' new TV movie from the UK. Niamh is a 47-year-old Irish actress, but looks ten years younger.
Here's Catherine Bell early in her career when she was working as a body double for Isabelle Rossellini in Death Becomes Her:
These pics have been around forever and are supposed to be a very young Brigitte Bardot. I'm skeptical, but I have never seen a convincing case for or against this assertion. If you know either way, let me know.

What would a week in the Funhouse be like without pictures of Lindsay Lohan in public in scanty clothing? Some may be repeats because Lohan and Paris are here so often that I lose track of which ones I've already seen.

Pat's comments in yellow...

Britain's Court of Appeals ruled Monday that drunken women can still consent to sex, freeing a young man with an otherwise spotless record who had been jailed for raping a university co-ed.  They'd been out together and the woman drank two pints of cider and up to six vodkas.  She claims she woke up to find him having sex with her and pressed charges. He said he was shocked because she'd wanted to do it and consented.  The three judges, two of them women, ruled that it's not rape if a woman has had enough booze to loosen her inhibitions so she consents to sex, but she's not drunk enough to make her incapable of making decisions. 

*  This is the rule they abide by in the judge's chambers. 

Cynthia Figueroa-Haas, an assistant professor at the University of Florida's College of Nursing, studied 84 women aged 21 to 57 and found that in the vast majority of cases, getting breast enhancement surgery significantly boosts their self-esteem.  She said that despite negative attitudes about the surgery and the fact that it's not a cure-all for low self-esteem, the average woman experienced a 20 percent rise in self-worth scores and a 15 percent boost in sexual function (a mix of arousal, satisfaction and experience) after getting a boob job.  She said more study is needed.

*  I'll get right on it!

Turns out supermodel Naomi Campbell made a fortune off her week of mopping up a New York garage as community service for assaulting
her maid.  Each day, she would be mobbed by paparazzi as she walked up in some stunning outfit, from lynx jackets to spike-heeled boots.  Now, it's been revealed that the designers were in on it, W magazine will run a 20-page spread of the photos, and Campbell's base pay rate is $60,000 a day.  Angry New York attorney Raoul Felder said the deal wasn't illegal, but Campbell thumbed her nose at the system and sent the message that celebrities can get away with anything.    

*  Well, children have to learn that sometime.
