I thought this one deserved it's own thread, just so I can jot down some of the dialogue.

Brace yourselves: this is campy, transgressive b&w underground camp comedy about characters who are driven into an Old Dark House with a crazy widow by a thunderstorm, and also by an escaped gorilla.   

Did I mention that it's also a hardcore porno, and that the uncut version runs almost three hours?

This is the only porn movie I've ever seen with an intermission.

There's a lot of funny stuff in here, sure to please fans of John Waters. But boy, does it go on too long! The sex scenes, which are brief but frequent (and include girl-girl, boy-boy, boy-girl, and girl-vegetable), add nothing but padding. As an experiment in mixing hardcore sex into a "real" movie, I'd have to say it's a failure. Overall, I'd give it a 2.5/5, but I might have been willing to go higher if they'd made a 90 minute cut (there is a 2-hour cut, which still seems like it would be too long for this material).

Notes:

*Sound is bad and some of the dialogue is hard to catch.
*Pretty obvious they only did one take---if someone flubs their lines, they keep going.
*George "Sins of the Fleshapoids" Kuchar wrote the screenplay and acts. The movie really picks up when he shows up in the last hour. (George used a body double for his sex scenes).
*No porn actors or actresses appear.
*All of the male cast wear porn staches. They can be a little hard to tell apart.
*First sex scene occurs 30 minutes in.

Quotes:

*"Gorillas are different than little children. They have more hair."
* Why did you bring what I was told was a lily-white butt out in this rain?"
*"What have you got against beatniks?" "Well, for one thing, their bongo drums."
*"What do the widows of the world need with a washcloth?"
*"Those doors have not felt human knuckles for a while."
*"The coin of sexuality always has two faces."
*"Were the hippos dancing at the time?" "Yes, the Mexican hat dance."
*"The only way you and your girlfriend are going to get out of here is by flinging bananas at that gorilla."
*"Have you ever seen an ostrich run down by a wheelchair?"
*"To be bit by a bedbug like me could be a very scratchy situation."
*"People come and go... but the cucumbers must stay!"

Worth a watch... but be ready!

"Clive [Barker]'s idea of a great time is to have a nightmare about a woman with three heads and no skin who flays your body with a pitchfork. To give you some idea, NIGHTBREED has over 200 pus monsters, including one guy with a crescent moonhead like the McDonald's commercial and a fat guy with snakes that pop out of his stomach and eat your face off, and these are the GOOD GUYS. These are the people we're supposed to LIKE."-Joe Bob on NIGHTBREED

I've had this thing on my shelf since release date, and I keep telling myself, "Yeah, I'm in the mood for a 2 and a half hour hardcore-sex/comedy/indie/outie/horror/GAWDKNOWSWHUT! movie." Then I find something else to watch.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
