Reader review by Inyarear.  Dirt poor families raise pigs, brew moonshine, and marry their young daughters to dirty old men.

On the MST3K DVD for Merlin's Mystical Shop of Wonders, Kevin Murphy and Mike Nelson hint that this was one flick that made all of them feel really dirty after they watched it.

Who would have thought watching a nearly 70 year old movie would make you feel so ashamed of yourself?

It does, it does...


Perhaps one day there will be a Criterion "Special Edition" of CHILD BRIDE with a commentary by Dateline NBC's Chris Hansen.

Is there really a nudity shot of the 12 year old???  How come you could not say panties or show a woman in two piece bathing suit, but you could possibly show a pre-pubesant child???? Question Question Question

If it is anything like Refer Madness, I might have to watch it with the Psychiatric phone number on speed dial.

Oh man the humanity!!!

It does include those shots.  If it were not for those, I think that writing about the film could be a lot more playful (ala "Maniac" and "Reefer Madness"), but those moments sort of creep you out.  Raffine and Torgo hit the nail on the head.  You feel dirty and ashamed.

I remember watching the Today Show and they had clips of Chris busting some of the guys coming in to have relations with someone a third to half thier age.  It was priceless to see their faces when he came out.

Re:  An actual nudity shot of a child --
I have this movie, and watched it several times -- perhaps I own an expurgated version, as I know of no actual "child nudity" in it -- certainly much is implied, but nothing really happens --
I do think, though, that the choice of the character of the midget moonshier to actually shoot and kill the "bad guy/pedophile/jest doin' wot we allas do" fellow was a brilliant move --
peter curios/denny huh?

Er --
I re-read the review, and, without rerunning the scenes involved, do wonder if too much is being made of this --
Re:  Fleeting shots of Jenny Auguter's implied nakedness in "Walkabout" does not make it a pedophiliac or suspect film -- ditto the nude shots of the girl in the 1915 silent popular classic "Mickey".
Some fleeting glimpses does not equal kiddy-porn.  Period.   Sometimes a naked child is simply a naked child -- otherwise what?  Cover every baby being changed in public? . . . er, actually, that isn't a bad idea at all!! 
Back to topic:  I do sort of recall the scenes mentioned,-- It's too much work to go dig out the film & seek out the suspect sections -- but I didn't find them odd or disturbing in the way that actually suspect films can be . . . HOWEVER!. . . As this IS supposed to be an "exploitation film", then perhaps everyone else here is right & I'm not.
Anyway, I enjoy the film for its bad dialogue, silly hillbillies, IMPLIED sexuality (I still don't get what the "uncomfortable" factor is here), and great plot device in having the moonshining midget be the murderer.  Great bad sound, bad light, and otherwise singular vision.

Watching the clip of the guy telling the girl she's going to be his wife made me feel ... dirty.

"You'd better be nice to me."
"... I'll try."

Ick.

The bad acting and direction lent the scene a strange sheen of authenticity, as if it were just some guy pointing a camera at an actual conversation.

Doesn't Jake remind you of The Bug/Edgar from Men In Black? Especially in that one screencap from the doll scene.

I wonder how the filmmakers expected to earn back thier budget for this movie?

I can't see it playing in the Catholic north, where I presume, it was Condemned by the Catholic Church, which means many theaters wouldn't show it.

Nor do I see it being any more popular in the Protestant south, as it seems to depict Southeners as backwards rubes and ignorant hicks.

They could have sold it to people for private showings, but, even here, I don't see them selling enough copies to make back their budget.

Holy crap, he does!

As far as this movie goes, I needed a shower after watching it. Especially the whole Jake making her kiss him thing. Ugh. So completely wrong.
