THE THRILL KILLERS / Ray Dennis Steckler - 1964

Hey, how lucky were you if you got to see this version of THE THRILL KILLERS, Ray Dennis and pals, running around like maniacs in the dark audience, menacing the rubberneckers and geeks with real axes!! Oh, hell yeah!!! Now, that's a poster, love that poor man's Gray Morrow style!!

André Brummer, aka Henri Price, is music guy today, a Steckler/Hall stalwart who work on title like MONSTER FROM THE OCEAN FLOOR, LOVE SLAVES OF THE AMAZON, MOONWOLF, THE JAILBREAKERS, EEGAH!, GOOF ON THE LOOSE, DAY OF THE NIGHTMARE, MUDHONEY, TEENAGE SHE DEVIL and GODMONSTER OF INDIAN FLATS...

Nice soundclip from Eegah, sez it all!! This particular flick is probably pick of the litter for most convincing, or disturbing production by Ray D. Hard to watch at times, down and dirty all the way. Aligns with THE SADIST!

Oh look, here is Ralphie the Tarantula, ready to be pushin' the old red 'GO' button and start today' show a rollin'... So, open the pod bay door!.. THE THRILL KILLERS!

Good joke to start off with!

Narrator is Coleman Francis... Oh, and by the way, "Flag on the Moon!"

A Hollywood to be nostalgic for!

Okay, enough fun, already!.. 'Mad Dog' Click need a car, so he kill family man Atlas King (Mumbles from THE INCREDIBLY STRANGE CREATURES WHO...) and steal that blue Plymouth station wagon from same flick! Whoa, Atlas' face look really smashed flat into pavement!

PAR-TY!!

Seven year old neighbor girl Julie say she do the party decoration for free, an offer too good for a lush to pass up!

Now you never have to wonder... WHATEVER HAPPENED TO ARCHIE? Arch is one of three producers!

Brick Bardo having little chat wif' one very weird looking yes man, Titus (Boo Boo) Moede! Titus also play motorcycle cop who chase Mad Dog at end! Man, the MST gang slice an' dice him bad when he drive his bike through that barn in THE SKYDIVERS! Fight scene with Tony Cardoza is totally hilarious too!!

Back in the day, good old booze could produce some very WTF! impromptu moments.

Mad Dog pop into town and he horny...

Horny for blood!

Back at the ranch, the three escaped maniacs (one is Mad Dog's bro) are holed up there, ready for anyone who might discover them!!

Meet Gary, Herbie and Keith, in no particular order. Those are also their real names, because, in Tabonga' opinion, didn't need to change them because they maniacs already in real life!!! Help create realism.

And, guess what?.. They out of Coke!!

Oops!.. Tabonga caught in embarrassing moment!

Radio say, "Watch out for three escaped mental"...

Oh, shit!!

Mad Dog' bro don't like them pretty boys, got it?!

Rat poison for Brother Rat!

Not cool!..

YAH... HOO... HOO... HOOEY!!!

Mad Dog finally show up, but things start to disintegrate fast!

So, then he kill state trooper and steal horse and hat. There is Titus on the police motorcycle way back there that can never catch up!

Nice relaxing bath after hard day of filmmaking!

i think Herb Robbins' participation in this film is one of the things that put it over the top, he was a great improviser. this is Ray's best(directing AND acting)but it is indeed hard to watch and i prefer Rat Pfink, Lemon Grove Kids & Incredibly Strange Creatures when i want a good time, not to mention Mad Love Life Of A Hot Vampire!...
