Believe it or don't, Tabonga see this when it came out, long time ago!! Eegah!! make great soundclip as jusual, flick advertised as first musical horror show, and boy, is full of wild an' bizarre act, gurlz, song, costume and dance!!.. Whew!

How the heck am I s'posed to follow this??? Bar is definitely raised... or is it lowered?

I actually saw this in a revival theatre years back. Incredible only begins to describe this thing. Really one of the classics of schlock horror.

Thanks guys!

Added Bonus: The film has color footage of the now (again!) decomissioned Angels Flight inclined railway.

glad you got around to this one. great screen shots- it's Wallpaper Time! i've seen this movie so many times i have it memorized. Ray Dennis Steckler was The Man. how lucky you were to have seen this in a theater. Ray only had one 35mm print of it and some guy ran off with it and Ray never got it back- apparently the negative's gone too. we'll never see this film the way it was meant to be on dvd. to me, that's fucking sad...

The dance sequence in this movie is EPIC.

I love how most (all?) of Steckler's movies have that same ominous-looking font for the titles.

Had no idea the original negatives for this movie were missing. Suck city!
